Notes from the Winemaker:

Pol Roger, one of a few luxury Champagne firms still family-owned, was established in Epernay in 1849. Pol Roger owns 200 acres of vineyards, which provide about 45% of their needs. Pol Roger's cellars extend over four miles of winding chalk passageways on two levels. The second or deeper cellar maintains a constant 9.5º C (50º F), one degree lower than the first level and most others in the region. This lower temperature slows the second fermentation, encouraging a finer mousse or bubbles. Pol Roger Champagne also spends two to three times the allowable minimum in the cellar before disgorgement, or about three years for the non-vintage and up to seven for the luxury cuvées. The long, slow maturation contributes greatly to the complex aromas, which distinguish these superb Champagnes.

The Brut Non Vintage blend is traditionally composed from about 30 to 35 still base wines, drawn from different vineyard sites, grape varieties and vintage years. It usually contains wines of at least two vintages, often three or four. Reserve wines compose between 20-30% of the traditional blend. The Brut NV is never sold until the youngest component is at least three years old, which gives it more character and body.

Pale gold with a very fine bead; flowery, delicately toasty aroma with fruit and complexity; creamy, beautifully balanced with a dry, harmonious finish.


Ratings & Reviews

91 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"Pol Roger’s standard nonvintage cuvée is a rich wine, full in the mouth with a high proportion of Pinots and a creamy mousse. There is a depth of flavor thanks to the considerable use of mature reserved wines in the blend. It finishes with weight combining with final acidity." — R.V. (12/1/2009)

90 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"A mix of floral, apple and berry aromas and flavors highlight this firmly structured, elegant bubbly, which is harmonious and vibrant, with a lingering finish. Drink now through 2013. 7,000 cases imported." –BS (Oct 31, 2010)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar:
"Light yellow, with a steady bead. Toasty pit fruits and lemon rind on the nose, with a suave undercurrent of candied flowers. Bitter peach skin and pear flavors are complicated by notes of floral honey and dried flowers, with a touch of orange rind on the back. Leaves a gently tangy citrus quality behind on the powerful, smoky finish." - Josh Raynolds (Dec '09)
