The 2006 Brut Vintage from Champagne Pol Roger is made from the traditional house vintage blend of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay from 20 Grands and Premiers crus vineyards in the Montagne de Reims and the Côte des Blancs. Produced only in limited quantities the Brut Vintage 2006 has been aged for 8 years in our cellars before being disgorged and released onto the market.
■ Grape Variety
Pinot Noir 50%, Chardonnay 50% Pol Roger’s own traditional blend uses Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from up to 20 Grand and Premier Cru vineyards in the Montagne de Reims, Grand Vallee de la Marne and the Cote des Blancs.
■ Winemaking and Maturing
Essentially only cuvee is used. Once the must has been clarified, the wine is fermented in strictly temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, thereby preserving the aroma and fruity characteristics. The wine is then aged in the deepest, low temperature underground cellar in Epernay for a minimum of three years. Remuage is carried out manually by a specialist craftsman and after dosage (about 11 grams to a liter) it is left to settle until adjustment is complete before shipping
■ Tasting Notes
The 2006 Brut Vintage from Champagne Pol Roger is an attractive deep golden colour with a continuous thread of lingering bubbles. The nose is instantly powerful and complex, revealing the maturity of the wine, developing aromas of quince and apple, combined with richer notes of dried fruits. The palate shows a creamy, voluptuous and well-balanced structure. The long-lasting aftertaste boasts sumptuous almond nuttiness balanced with citrus freshness. The wine has a full-bodied structure, and pleasing maturity, without detracting from the overarching delicacy.
