Brut Vintage 2009

Champagne Pol Roger

Pol Roger Brut Vintage relies on a majority of Pinot Noir (60%) to provide it’s lush, rich body. The remainder of the blend is made of Chardonnay. Both varietals are sourced from Grand and 1er Cru vineyards in the Montagne de Reims and the Côte des Blancs.

Vinification: Like all Pol Roger Champagnes the components for the Brut Vintage are fermented separately in stainless steel at very low temperatures. The wine is then blended and aged for 8 years in the deep cellars below Epernay prior to final blending and release to the market.

Brut Vintage is typically a richly styled wine driven by pear and apricot fruit, floral aromas and bracing acidity. Take advantage of the wines natural weight and pair it with Foie Gras, Sweetbreads, or soft cheeses.

Additional Information

“A golden yellow straw-like color, bright and full of intensity with attractive lingering bubbles. A fine nose with enticing notes of fresh honey, candied grapefruit and lime. On the palate a dominating fruitiness with light biscuit character. A full and long texture displaying freshness and viscosity. The wine is balanced with remarkable harmony. An amazingly pure champagne.”

    "This balanced Champagne shows a lovely creaminess, offering a mix of crème de cassis, pastry dough and preserved lemon flavors. Fresh, with light minerality on the open-knit finish. Drink now through 2025."

    The latest vintage release from this producer, this is beautifully balanced with white fruits and touches of citrus paralleled by a tight mineral texture and acidity. It is still young, because vintages from this producer age for many years. Drink from 2020.
