Pol Roger Brut 2013
The Brut Vintage 2013 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 2013 has been aged for 7 years before being disgorged and released onto the market.
On the eye: The 2013 Brut Vintage displays an enticing pale golden hue underpinned by a vivid and elegant cord.
On the nose: A complex bouquet of almond, cashew nut, small candied seeds, harmoniously counterbalanced by its vibrant sensation of youth and lightness mingling with mineral and floral fragrances. Then as the wine opens up in the glass, the scents of toast and Viennese pastries reveal all their richness and intensity.
On the palate: The mouth tingles under its seductive attack, crisp, fresh, acidulous, and yet full of roundness and suppleness. Then comes a long lasting intense aftertaste with hints of white flowers. This complex body gradually becomes more refined to offer a creamy texture reminiscent of pastry and toasted aromas, to finish with an exquisite salinity.
