Pol Roger - Brut Rose 2002Champagne
An intense, brilliant pink colour.
A powerful bouquet discloses concentrated citrus fruit aromas, even stewed strawberries.
In the mouth, the balance between minerality and firmness from the tannins and the mature fruit has produced a full-bodied Champagne, full of personality.
The finish reveals the wine's youthfulness and suggests that it has a bright future both on its own and when paired with food.
Produced by Pol Roger, like all its Vintage styles, only in years when growing and harvest conditions can produce grapes of sufficient standard, the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay musts underwent 2 cold settlings before fermentation in stainless steel to preserve the fruit characteristics of the wine.
The wine then had 15% still red Pinot Noir wine from the village of Chouilly added to the blend which was then transferred to bottle for its second fermentation and ageing in the cellars.
