Pol Roger Brut Rosé 2008


SKU 03222


Pol Roger exclusively produces Vintage Rosé, versus making both Vintage and Non-Vintage, and does so in extremely small quantities. Pol Roger Brut Rosé Vintage is blend of 50% Pinot Noir and 35% Chardonnay, from 20 Premiers and Grands crus on the Montagne de Reims and Côte des Blancs, and 15% Pinot Noir from selected vineyards in Bouzy, Ambonnay and Cumieres that is vinified 'en rouge' and added to the blend prior to the second fermentation. On the nose, lovely aromas of red fruits and summer berries. On the palate, intense flavors of fresh strawberry, citrus and creamy vanilla with impeccable structure and a long finish. Pairs well with grilled salmon, sushi, fresh fruit and fruit tarts.

Wine EnthusiastThis ripe wine with its red fruits and well balanced texture is beautifully ready to drink, with just the right crisp acidity to balance the soft richness. There is no sign yet of maturity, the fruit from this great vintage showing at its perfumed best.

Wine SpectatorFlavors of strawberries and cream, singed orange peel and macaroon are layered on the finely meshed frame of this rich rosé Champagne, kept lithe and focused by bright acidity. Long and minerally on the elegant finish. Drink now through 2028. 600 cases imported.
