    A whiff of petrol can be found on the ripe aromas of baked apple, brioche and soft floral scents. The exceptionally rich yet powerful flavors possess an almost creamy mid-palate mouth feel despite the presence of a firm supporting effervescence that also shapes the sappy and wonderfully complex finale. This is a bold, indeed even robust vintage for this famous cuve and while it could certainly be enjoyed now, I would suggest holding it for another 5ish years asmy sense is that even more complexity is almost certain to develop.

    Some reductive meaty notes of bacon fat and flint, with lemon cream and butter too, as well as a light forest berry edge and toasted hazelnuts. The palate has attractive lemon citrus cream flavor. Super pure, there's power amongst the charm. This is a great '06. Drink now.

    This dances gracefully on the palate, with rich and expressive flavors of peach tart, raspberry sorbet, candied ginger and orange peel, and sleek acidity that leaves a mouthwatering impression on the satiny finish.

  • Defined by distinction and elegance, Pol Roger is considered the 'gentlemen's' champagne. Favored by Winston Churchill and the British monarchy, the Pol Roger brand is dedicated to the reflection of refinement, class, and an exclusive lifestyle. Created to display the unique union of family spirit and vineyard character, Pol Roger is a product of generations of knowledge dedicated to both vineyard practices and winemaking skill. The winery and cellars are located on the celebrated and noble Avenue de Champagne in the town of Eperney.

    Champagne is the northernmost wine region of France, located 90 miles outside of Paris. Its storied wine reputation dates back to the Middle Ages; a few of the top houses, to which so much of the region's fame is owed, have been producing since the early 1700s. As one of the coolest wine producing regions in the world, Champagne is perfectly suited to growing Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier at the low sugar/high acid levels necessary for sparkling wines. The region's famous chalk soils not only reflect sunlight back to the vines, helping them to ripen, but also impart minerality to the fruit, giving Champagne its characteristic flavor profile.
