Pol Roger Blanc de Blanc Vintage 2012
Described by CEO Laurent D’Harcourt as a celebration of Chardonnay, Pol Roger’s Blanc de Blancs has, since its introduction in 1959, provided a fascinating counterpoint to the other wines in its illustrious portfolio, which tend to favour the black grapes of Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.
The resulting wine more than justifies Christian Pol Roger’s memorable description of ‘liquid diamonds’. Sparkling indeed.
The Blanc de Blancs 2012 is pale yellow-gold in colour enhanced by a fine and elegant stream of lingering bubbles. The nose exudes notes of dried fruits and hazelnut, which combine harmoniously with touches of citrus and exotic fruits. As the wine opens up in the glass, it reveals aromas of peach and apricot. On the palate, the first impression is clear-cut and incisive. Fresh notes of citrus are underpinned by a bright acidity. The aftertaste is persistent but delicate and leaves a lasting impression of great refinement. This is a champagne bursting with elegance.
