Pol Roger Brut Réserve NV
Pol Roger Reserve, commonly known as "The White Foil" is a source of absolute pride for Pol Roger and it is blended to a closely-guarded recipe that has been passed down for generations. This sense of tradition and insistence on quality is probably what brought about Sir Winston Churchill’s lifelong attachment to Pol Roger and led to him famously insisting that "In defeat I need it, in victory I deserve it".
Pol Roger had been the favourite champagne of Sir Winston Churchill since 1908.
Pol Roger Brut Réserve displays a beautiful golden straw colored hue, as well as abundant and fine bubbles. With a powerful and attractive nose, it first delivers aromas of fruit (pear, mango ...) and then releases light flavors of honeysuckle and white jasmine, lingering on vanilla and brioche notes. Behind a frank and dynamic attack, the wine encompasses a nice harmony and a pleasant freshness, whilst preserving some structure.
On the palate, flavors of cooked fruit (quince jelly, apricot jam) happily mingle with fragrances of beeswax and acacia honey. The long-lasting aromas, composed of both fruity (candied orange peel, tangerine...) and spicy notes (cardamom, anis) is outstanding.
