Champagne Pol Roger Vintage Brut 2015
Champagne from France - Champagne
Pol Roger's vintage Champagne is their usual blend of 60% pinot noir and 40% chardonnay, aged for a full seven years before its release from Pol's chalk cellars. 2015 was a warmer, drier year which has helped to create a rich, full-bodied, classic vintage wine. This seriously good Champagne has generosity and huge appeal on release. With rich brioche, baked apple and plum notes on the nose, there is also mineral line and elegance on the palate that holds the citrus and orchard fruits well. With pin-prick fine bubbles and bright acidity well balanced with the 7g-l dosage, this wine is singing now, but will continue to age and improve over the next 10 years.

Pol Roger founded his eponymous house in 1849 and earned his living largely by making Champagne for other houses. Although the business started without an inch of vineyard to its name, it gradually acquired land of its own and now has 55 hectares in and around Epernay, including important sites on the Côte des Blancs and Montagne de Reims as well as numerous other vineyard plantings.
Pol Roger was known to be the favourite Champagne of Winston Churchill who was quoted as proclaiming, “In victory, deserve it. In defeat, need it!”. The prestige wine, Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill, was released as a tribute and although the blend is a closely guarded secret, it is believed to be pinot noir-dominated, reflecting the style that Churchill preferred.
Still run by descendants of the founder, Pol Roger is classic grande marque Champagne with a tremendous reputation rooted in the style and finesse of all its cuvées. It also has the kudos of being one of the few houses to hold the Royal Warrant. A blanc de blancs and a rosé, both vintage-dated are also produced, the former in tiny quantities.
