Pol Roger Brut Rose Vintage 2015
In its 160 years of history, Pol Roger has carved out one of the most flattering reputations in the select circle of the leading Champagne brands. There is that moment when the spirit of Pol Roger is revealed. One may think one knows champagne and yet, that day, one truly discovers it.
The Pol Roger Rosé Vintage is based on our Brut Vintage (60% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay) to which we add, before the bottling and second fermentation, approximately 15% of still red wine (Pinot Noir) from the best crus of the Montagne de Reims. Produced only in limited quantities, the Brut Rosé Vintage 2015 is aged in our cellars before being released onto the market.
The wine is salmon-pink in colour with tints of orange, set off by fine bubbles. Its initial nose offers a good aromatic expression dominated by red fruit, such as cherry and raspberry, along with rose petals, all leading to a beautiful freshness. As it warms, notes of candied cherries and candy bring complexity to the ensemble. The palate is in balance with the nose - both of equal intensity and richness. The wine is fresh on entry to the palate with citrus notes of blood orange, then shows itself to be generous and enveloping as it reveals its red fruit aromas. With a perfectly balanced palate, it offers good length. This vintage's character is supported by power and vinosity.
The Brut Rosé Vintage 2015 is the ideal choice to accompany fish such as grilled salmon or even sushi. It also marries perfectly with fruit tarts and other fruit desserts; try pairing with a forced rhubarb fool, the sharpness of the fruit complementing the elegant structure of the wine.
