Pol Roger Brut Reserve NV

Champagne, FranceFounded in 1849, and overseen by family for five generations, Pol Roger Brut Reserve was famously Sir Winston Churchill’s favourite champagne. Equal parts pinot noir, pinot meunier and chardonnay, this was drawn from 30 crus across the Montagne de Reims, Vallée de la Marne, & Côte des Blancs. After a stainless ferment and full MLF, this ages four years on lees and includes 25 percent reserve wines. Creamy, lees led and brioche dominant, with green apple, toasty notes, high acid (easily enough to counter the 9 g/l dosage). Lovely meringue / marshmallow notes on the finish. A well-balanced classic.Tasted: 03 March 2019Tasted by: Prices: BC 69.99 BCLS ON 66.00 LCBO QC 63.00 SAQ NF 72.00 NB 65.00 BC 39.99 375 BCLS NS 67.00 NSLC Producer: Champagne Pol RogerDistributors: The Bacchus Group Inc.
