Pol Roger prefers to release its rosé champagnes only in vintage years.
Produced in limited quantities the Rosé Vintage 2008 has been aged for 6.5 years in cellars before being disgorged and released onto the market.
The Brut Rose Vintage is produced from a blend of 50% Pinot Noir and 35% Chardonnay drawn from some 20 Premier and Grand Crus on the Montagne de Reims and the Côte des Blancs.
In order to obtain its delicate colour and subtle nose 15% Pinot Noir, from selected vineyards in Bouzy, Ambonnay and Cumieres, is vinified “en rouge” and added to the blend prior to the second fermentation.
Dosage – 10.5g/l
Winemaker’s Tasting Notes:
An intense pink peppercorn colour with a fine stream of persistent bubbles. The nose has aromas of red fruits and summer berries. On the palate the first impression is freshness with notes of fragrant wild strawberry, this develops into creamy ripeness with a hint of vanilla.
- Allow the wine to blossom in your glass, and you can witness a further layer of citrus aromas with notes of grapefruit.
- This Rosé Champagne has a great personality.
Brut Rosé 2008 an ideal choice to accompany fish such as grilled salmon and sushi. It also marries 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.
