Pol Roger Pure - Extra Brut
Pol Roger Pure has been created to complete the Pol Roger range of champagnes and to offer new sensations to connoisseurs.
Brought out in 2008, this cuvée is above all an exercise in the House style, where they have endeavored to achieve a wine in its most natural state whilst respecting the spirit of the different champagnes they produce. Seeking to closely guard the authentic expression of the diversity of terroirs, this undosed champagne is produced from the perfect balance between the three grape varieties, blended in equal proportions. The achievement of such a balance and structure has been the fruit of a long lasting labor. The choice of the cuvées for blending and of the ageing period of at least four years required all the rigor reflected in this wine.
On the eye: The golden color, dense and shining, is sprinkled with thousands of tiny bubbles.
On the nose: It displays refined and complex notes of clove flowers and rose aromas developing into hints of bread crumbs, yeast and citrus fruit, which as they mingle, form a lively and fresh body.
On the palate: The first attack, straight and fine as an arrow is surprising, compared to the mature and concentrated nose. But this firm texture seems to act as a chisel enhancing a sumptuous wine, well-structured and fine. The aftertaste develops subtle aromas of honey and cloves giving the wine more depth and contributing to its good length.
The inner freshness of this champagne is combined with a mature and concentrated nose displaying a balance of firmness and delicacy. It will perfectly match sweet and firm fleshy food, such as some shellfish prepared in the most natural manner, for example a starter of crayfish, lobster, crab and rock lobster salad drawn out with a dash of olive oil and hazelnut vinegar.
