Pol Roger Brut Réserve Non Vintage is a blend of thirty still base wines from different vineyards and vintages. This is where the true style of the brand is defined and executed year after year, as Pol Roger only selects the best vintages.
This blend is equal parts Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay. The still wines are fermented in stainless steel at a cool 8°C (45°F) to keep its freshness. Then it ferments in stainless steel to preserve the fruity characteristics of the wine.
This clarification technique is the Pol Roger champagne specificity.
Each final blend is aged for a minimum of three years in the house cellars, the deepest in Epernay.
The color is a dense straw yellow in color, with a fine mousse of vigorous activity.
The nose opens with beguiling hints of pear and mango, which are repeated with notes of honey-suckle and white jasmine, reinforced with a vanilla hint.
In the mouth it is fresh and harmonious in the attack, followed by great power and assertive freshness. Lovely fruity aromas are at the fore in this champagne.
It yields very pleasant flavors of apricot quince jelly, intertwined with hints of beeswax, reinforced with notes of acacia honey. A superb marriage of fruits (candy orange zests, mandarine) and spices (cardamom, green anise) that has true gravitas.
