Established in 1849, Pol Roger is one of the few luxury Champagne producers that remains family-owned. Critically acclaimed, staunchly supported by Winston Churchill and even served at William & Kate's wedding.
The Brut Non Vintage blend is traditionally composed from about 30 to 35 still base wines, drawn from different vineyard sites and vintage years. Reserve wines compose between 20-30% of the traditional blend. On the palate, this medium-bodied Brut is as round and fruit-driven as it is delicate, pure and very elegant. The mousse is deliciously fine and leads to a long, steely, dry and slightly minerally, long finish.
James Halliday 95 points:
"One of my favourite champagne houses. This entry point has one-third each of pinot noir, pinot meunier and chardonnay from 30 crus, 25% reserve wines, spending 4 years on tirage. It has a flowery bouquet, terrific mouthfeel thanks to a hint of honey, and Meyer lemon cleansing the finish and aftertaste."
