Description: On the nose, the champagne is dominated by white flowers, green apple, brioche and a trace of minerality.
On the palate there are notes of stone fruits, a certain nuttiness and a hint of honey supporting the freshness of the acidity. UK stock receives an additional 6 months post-disgorgement ageing so it is ready to drink upon release but cellaring for a few years will reveal greater depths.
The aperitif champagne par excellence but one which has sufficient backbone to be drunk with fish and even spicy dishes.
Brut Reserve is blended from 30 still base wines from different vineyards, different vintages and the three main grape varieties which dominate the champagne region: Pinot Noir contributes body, depth of character and life-extending tannins and comes from the villages of the Montagne de Reims - Verzy, Verzenay, Mailly, Ambonnay, Mardeuil and Louvois; Chardonnay provides the lightness, elegance and finesse and is drawn from Epernay itself and the villages of the Cote des Blancs - Cuis, Oiry, Oger, Vertus, Moussy and Chouilly; Pinot Meunier supplies youthful freshness, vigour and plump character with the grapes coming from the Vallee d'Epernay - Vincelles, Venteuil, Troissy, Damery, Vandieres, Brugny, Chavot, Monthelon and Pierry.

Great Britain is, and always has been, the premier export market for Champagne Pol Roger: a tradition dating back to the 1860's. For more than a century, Champagne Pol Roger (celebrating its 150th Anniversary in 1999) was represented in Great Britain by a single company, Dent & Reuss and its antecedents: a symbol of stability, continuity and mutual loyalty.
In 1990, with the closure of Dent & Reuss, Champagne Pol Roger resolved to establish its own subsidiary in Great Britain, Pol Roger Ltd.
The key management team from Dent & Reuss were recruited to the new company. With selective recruitment, the establishment has now grown to a closely integrated team of fourteen.
