Pol Roger Brut Rosé Vintage 2006

Cuvee: Rosé, Vintage
Vintage: 2006
A Rosé Champagne with great personality. Pol Roger does not make a Non-Vintage Rosé, preferring to release Rosé champagnes only in vintage years. Brut Rose Vintage is produced from a blend of 50% Pinot Noir and 35% Chardonnay drawn from some 20 Premiers and Grands crus on the Montagne de Reims and the Côte des Blancs, with 15% Pinot Noir red wine from selected vineyards in Bouzy, Ambonnay and Cumieres.

The Blend
50% Pinot Noir, 35% Chardonnay and 15% Pinot Noir red wine. Dosage: 8 g/l.

Tasting Notes
Intense pink peppercorn colour with a stream of persistent bubbles.

Aromas of red fruits and summer berries.

The first impression is freshness with notes of fragrant wild strawberry, this develops into creamy ripeness with a hint of vanilla. If the wine is allowed to blossom in the glass, a further layer of citrus aromas appears, with notes of grapefruit.

Food Pairing
Ideal to accompany fish such as grilled salmon or sushi. It also marries perfectly with fruit tarts and other fruit desserts; try pairing with a forced rhubarb fool, the sharpness of the fruit complementing the elegant structure of the wine.
