Pol Roger Rose 2009
The Pol Roger Rosé Vintage is based on the Brut Vintage (60% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay) to which the house adds, before the bottling and second fermentation, approximately 15% of still red wine (Pinot Noir) from the best crus of the Montagne de Reims. Produced only in limited quantities, the Brut Rosé Vintage 2009 is aged 7 years before being released onto the market.
On the eye: Pol Roger Rosé Vintage 2009 is immediately eye-catching with its salmon-pink hue and glittering stream of fine bubbles.
On the nose: The nose is just as enticing with great aromatic complexity. It combines aromas of fresh red fruits, sweet buttery brioche, and a spicy detailed finish.
On the palate: The wine exudes great freshness and elegance; the overarching impression is one of remarkable delicacy. Notes of exotic fruits combine harmoniously with floral undertones; on the finish, hints of dried fruit emerge, leading to an outstandingly fresh and powerful finish.
The Brut Rosé Vintage 2009 is the ideal choice to accompany fish such as grilled salmon or even sushi. It also marries perfectly with fruit tarts and other fruit desserts; try pairing with a forced rhubarb fool, the sharpness of the fruit complementing the elegant structure of the wine.
