Pol Roger Rose 2012
The Pol Roger Rosé Vintage is based on the Brut Vintage (60% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay) to which the house adds 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 2012 was aged 6 years before being released onto the market.
On the eye: Pale raspberry with fine copper glints.
On the nose: Opulent and well structured, with red berries and a rich spicy depth. The palate taught, with a refreshing backbone of acidity, that rounds out to a sensation of bursting redcurrants.
On the palate: A lively finish that is impressively long. Savor now for freshness or keep for many years to come for a richer and more luxurious wine.
The Brut Rosé Vintage 2012 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.
