Pol Roger Brut Rosé Vintage '08

Rosé 2008

$169.99

"A medium- to full-salmon hue heralds an expressive and characterful rosé of beautifully defined red and black cherries, blackberries, pink pepper, tamarillos and even a hint of pipe smoke. Pinot noir takes a confident lead, contributing elegant fragrance and succulent flesh and body within the strict and consummately controlled mood of Pol Roger. The fine chalk minerality of the great crus of the Côte des Blancs and Montagne de Reims draws out a long and refined finish, well supported by ultra-fine, impeccably handled tannins. A rosé of character and finesse, it looks smarter than ever in its new mushroom-purple livery."

Tyson Stelzer - The Champagne Guide 2018-2019

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.
