Tasting notes

95 Points - The Wine Advocate

"The salmon colour of the 2008 Rosé Brut with its pink and orange reflections is already magic and most probably unique. And then comes the nose: less subtle and discreet, but fine and elegant, deep, ripe and fleshy, with raw meat, nougat and liquorice flavours intermingled with pure red berry (currant) and cherry aromas. Can you imagine this Rosé is based on the Réserve Brut (60% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay)? It is, but before the bottling and second fermentation, approximately 15% of still red wine (Pinot Noir) from the crus of the Montagne de Reims is added. This extraordinary Rosé Champagne is produced only in limited quantities and has been aged seven years before its release. Medium to full-bodied, smooth and fruit intense on the palate, this is another highly elegant and perfectly balanced Pol Roger fizz with a beautiful Pinot perfume in the finish. This is very sensual though complex Champagne that covers your tongue with pink silk. If you don't mind, I'd prefer to call this an excitingly erotic Champagne that I would love to drink on its own, but in any case not alone." - Stephan Reinhardt

More about the Producer

  • Pol Roger

    Pol Roger

    This famous brand began in 1849 with the move of Pol Roger from Ay to Epernay. Very early on, the house began to export to England. She became the favourite of Winston Churchill, who knew all the more about Champagne as Pol Roger produced famous ones who age admirably. At the time, Champagnes were based on Pinot Noir ; besides, the great man hardly liked chardonnay.

    With the acquisition of a vineyard in the Côte des Blancs in the mid-1950s, current Champagnes take advantage of the elegance of Chardonnay . After a slight hesitation between 1986 and 1995 when he was very light, Pol Roger regained great form. Long reserved for the English market, the dense Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill pays homage to the great man with a vinous Champagne as he loved it so much. The 1999 vintage respects its spirit to the letter. Heir to a fine lineage, pure chardonnay is the house's other sure bet with a beautiful 2000 which marks the house's return to the highest level. Lovers of dry champagne will look with interest the Rich cuvée, certainly one of the best in the field.
