Please note that these are Half Bottles of 375 ML
Pol Roger Non-Vintage Brut is an impeccably dry, elegant, classic Champagne of Epernay made of 33% Pinot Meunier, 33% Pinot Noir and 33% Chardonnay. Pol Roger is one of the few luxury Champagne firms which is still family-owned, and it was established in Epernay in 1849. Robert Parker who calls Pol Roger his favorite N.V. Serve as an aperitif, or with fresh seafood, especially oysters or pan-seared scallops, caviar spread or Sushi and sashimi. We also enjoy good Champagne with all things fried, like Calamari (but hold the red sauce!). Fried shrimp are a perfect companion.

Wine SpectatorAn elegant Champagne, with a smoky, minerally underpinning and subtle flavors of poached pear, toast, candied lemon zest and ginger riding the finely detailed bead. Harmonious, and hard to stop sipping. Drink now through 2020. 10,000 cases imported.
Wine AdvocateStraw yellow and with a golden hue in color, the Pol Roger NV Réserve Brut displays a brilliant, perfectly ripe but also fresh, highly elegant and refined fruit aroma on the nose; think of cooked pip fruits like pears and apples, but also quince-confiture and yellow stone fruits, such as apricots and peaches intermixed with vanilla, brioche (pain aux raisins), some nutty flavors and also some white floral notes. On the palate, this medium-bodied Brut is as round (if not pretty sweet) and fruit-driven as it is delicate, pure and very elegant. The mousse is deliciously fine and leads this charming and perfectly balanced fizz to a long, aromatic, stunningly dry and slightly mineral, impressively long finish. This is extremely well done Champagne from equal parts of Pinot Noir, Meunier and Chardonnay sourced in 30 different crus. This Réserve includes 25% of reserve wines and was dosed with nine grams per liter.
Wine Enthusiast"Editors' Choice" This is a well-balanced, ripe wine in the producer's rich house style. A brighter, more mineral crispness and acidity also come through strongly in this bottling. The aftertaste brings together a mineral texture and full yellow and apple fruits. Drink now.
