Pol Roger Brut Vintage FR0190

Tasting Notes

The wine displays a very attractive white gold colour, it is bright and full of intensity with a continuous thread of lingering bubbles. The nose, mineral, elegant and complex, delivers notes of white flowers and fresh quinces. The attack on the palate reveals an intense and refined liveliness. Delicate toasted flavours of acacia honey and pear enhance the balance and complexity of the wine without detracting from its delicacy. The long and steady aftertaste highlights delicious notes of citrus fruit (fresh grapefruit).

About The Producer

Pol Roger

  • Pol Roger

    Pol Roger made his first sale of wine in January 1849. The firm developed rapidly. From Aÿ, it moved to Epernay in 1851. As early as 1855, Pol began to favour production of brut Champagne. He knew that this was the type of Champagne which the English preferred. By 1899, when its founder died, the brand has acquired an enviable amount of recognition. It had only taken about thirty years. On 23rd February 1900, a disaster occurred: Part of the cellars and the buildings collapsed. Five hundred casks and one and a half million bottles were lost. By this time, Pol Roger's sons, Maurice and Georges, were in charge of the firm. A show of solidarity together with brothers determination enabled the firm to overcome this catastrophe. Exports progressed and many crowned heads became customers of the brand. The emblematic figure of Winston Churchill left his mark on the post-war period. This British statesman was an unwavering client of the Maison Pol Roger: "The most delightful address in the world", he declared. Their prestige cuvee is named after him.
