Pol Roger Rose Bottle 2002
Berry Bros & Rudd review:<br/>The 2002 Pol Rosé is made from 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay and includes 13% Vin Rouge de Champagne, the latter sourced from two growers in the village of Chouilly and added to the assemblage before the second fermentation. The complementary hallmarks of both Pol and the great 2002 vintage are evidenced, namely supreme elegance and great harmony. The rose petal fragrances cede to a palate where wild strawberry, spiced pepper and gentle herbs are pleasingly conjoined. The wine has a certain vinosity which will work nicely with puddings, but also a distinct balletic elegance which makes it perfect also as an apéritif. <br/>(Simon Field MW, BBR Buyer)
Pol Roger made his first sale of wine in January 1849. Family circumstances forced him to set a business. As early as 1855. Pol began to favour a production od Brut Campagne.
