Pol Roger Brut Réserve
|Region||France, Champagne, Epernay|
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.
Wine AdvocateOffering up aromas of pear, peach and freshly baked bread, the new release of Pol Roger's NV Brut Reserve is medium to full-bodied, fleshy and charming, with a generous core of fruit, lively acids and a saline finish, complemented by an elegant pinpoint mousse. It's a demonstrative, expressive Brut Reserve that will pick up additional complexity with more age on cork.
Vinous(one-third each pinot meunier, pinot noir and chardonnay) Subdued, deep aromas of spice, nuts and biscuits. Juicy, brisk and concentrated, with flavors of yellow plum, apple, lemon and minerals. At once dense and lively, with bright acids giving the wine a shapely quality. Finishes vibrant and distinctly stony.
