2006 Pol Roger 75CL
Sourced in 20 Premier and Grand Crus of the Côte de Blancs and the Montagne de Reims, the 2006 Vintage Brut is a cuvée of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay that was aged for nine years in the 33 meters deep cellar in Epernay.
The deep golden-colored wine offers a deep and vinous, very clear and elegant nose of sweet cherries, stewed and baked apples, ripe stone fruits, cinnamon, chalk, brioche, sweet paprika, orangeade and dashes of lemon juice. Full-bodied, rich, and round on the palate, this is a creamy textured though pure and highly elegant, firmly structured, powerful and persistent Champagne; it has a noble and rested expression, as well as a long, noble finish. This is midnight Champagne for noble jazz clubs with fine piano music, or to be matched with noble cigars.
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. For five generations, the descendants have been equally demanding, remaining loyal to the strategy initiated from the very beginning by the firm's founder. This refinement reflects a whole lifestyle. It is also a source of infinite pleasure.
Pol Roger Champagne has a soul, created by the union of a family's spirit and the character of a vineyard. The winery and the cellars are located on the celebrated and noble Avenue de Champagne in Epernay, in the very place where the heart of Champagne beats. The purity and nobility of Pol Roger Champagne is also the fruit of the know-how, passed down from generation to generation. From the harvest in the region's best vineyards, to the painstaking work in the cellar, each gesture has its importance. It is not surprising, therefore, that Winston Churchill and even the British Royal Family should have made it their favourite over the years.
