Pol Roger Rose 2015
Pol Roger does not make a non-vintage Rosé, preferring to release only in vintage years.
On the eye: The wine is salmon-pink in color with tints of orange, set off by fine bubbles.
On the nose: Its initial nose offers a good aromatic expression dominated by red fruit, such as cherry and raspberry, along with rose petals, all leading to a beautiful freshness. As it warms, notes of candied cherries and candy bring complexity to the ensemble.
On the palate: The palate is in balance with the nose - both of equal intensity and richness. The wine is fresh on entry to the palate with citrus notes of blood orange, then shows itself to be generous and enveloping as it reveals its red fruit aromas.
The Brut Rosé Vintage 2015 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.
Varietals: 60% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay
