Food Pairings for Pol Roger Champagne Blend Champagne Selection Brut
Is there anything more festive than a glass of Champagne during the holidays? Don't save it just for New Year's Eve: Enjoy bubbles with your holiday dinner and other meals, starting with a toast to friends and family around the table, and then pairing it with turkey, goose, or ham. This Champagne is a blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier, so it has the full-bodied heft to pair well with all the robust flavors of the classic turkey dinner. I love this bubbly in particular, not just for its toasty notes of green apples and peaches, but also for its dressy white foil, which reminds me of snowy evenings and pristine concert dresses.
Simply excellent. Citrus fruit fresh & very powerful. Dry but refreshing. Wish I had a case of the stuff.
External Reviews for Pol Roger Champagne Blend Champagne Selection Brut
Pol Roger Champagne spends two to three times the allowable minimum in the cellar before disgorgement, or about three years for the non-vintage and up to seven for the luxury cuv es.
Epernay, Champagne, FrancePol Roger, one of a few luxury Champagne firms still family-owned, was established in Epernay in 1849. Pol Roger owns 200 acres of vineyards, which provide about 45% of their needs. Pol Roger's cellars extend over four miles of winding chalk passageways on two levels. The second or deeper cellar maintains a constant 9.5 C (50 F), one degree lower than the first level and most others in the region. This lower temperature slows the second fermentation, encouraging a finer mousse or bubbles. Pol Roger Champagne also spends two to three times the allowable minimum in the cellar before disgorgement, or about three years for the non-vintage and up to seven for the luxury cuvees. The long, slow maturation contributes greatly to the complex aromas, which distinguish these superb Champagnes. Pol Roger Champagne Brut Reserve is a sparkling wine gem made from 33% Pinot Meunier, 33% Pinot Noir and 33% Chardonnay. The Brut Non Vintage blend is traditionally composed from about 30 to 35 still base wines, drawn from different vineyard sites, grape varieties and vintage years. It usually contains wines of at least two vintages, often three or four. Reserve wines compose between 20-30% of the traditional blend. The Brut NV is never sold until the youngest component is at least three years old, which gives it more character and body. After clarification of the must at 46 F (a process unique to Pol Roger) the first fermentation is carried out in neutral vessels under closely controlled temperature so as to retain as much fresh fruit character and aroma as possible. Dosage averages a low 1.25%. Pol Roger Champagne Brut Reserve is pale gold with a very fine bead. It has a flowery, delicately toasty aroma with fruit and complexity. The wine is creamy and beautifully balanced with a dry, harmonious finish. Enjoy with all kinds of food or simply to celebrate one of lifes special moments.
Lean, featuring bracing acidity and modest ginger, cinnamon and bread dough flavors.
Pol Roger Champagne in its own presentation carton. An excellent style champagne.
A nose of white flowers, apple and a trace of minerality. The palate: notes of stone fruits, nuts and a hint of honey.
