"The 2012 Brut Rosé is plush and effusive in the glass, with terrific richness and plenty of texture. There is a gorgeous sense of immediacy to the 2012 that makes it absolutely irresistible. Bright red berry fruit, spice and perfumed floral notes resonate with terrific depth. Medium in body and racy, the Rosé has so much to offer in a style that balances energy with richness." Vinous - Antonio Galloni

Technical details

65% pinot noir, 35% chardonnay including 15% pinot noir red wine addition. The fruit is sourced from 20 grand cru and premier cru villages in the Montagne de Reims and Côte des Blancs; full malolactic fermentation; 8 g/l dosage.

If it is good enough for her Majesty the Queen to drink every evening, then this it is good enough for us. Pol Roger is of the few champagne houses that have rightfully earned the British coat of arms to adorn every bottle and after all, it’s not just a favourite with the Royal Family but most of Britain, who know good champagne from the average. This medium-sized, family owned treasure of the Champagne region is the epitome of quality and consistency. With deep cool cellars, this maison leaves their cuvées ageing for far longer than most of their counterparts allowing the development of very fine and tiny bubbles. This creates a silky texture on the palate with subtle toasty notes that are the hallmark of excellent champagne. If ever in doubt, buy Pol Roger.

This wine is simply a knockout so you either match it with something like this duck dish created by Chef Adam Stokes combining tart rhubarb, poached in a sweet liquor of vanilla and star anise, with a crunchy, savoury granola. If you prefer dessert (but not sweet) try the rhubarb fool as suggested by the house.
