Pol Roger Vintage Brut 2013

Vintage 2013

$149.95

- The just-released 2013 Brut Vintage

- From the Grande Marque Pol Roger (Winston's favourite!)

- Pair with Japanese cuisine

This Brut vintage is the new release of Pol Roger, following the landslide success of the 2012 Brut. We love the citrus zest and white flowers scents, followed by hints of fresh sourdough. On the palate, a full-bodied, voluptuous wine, with notes of apples, and shortbread.

President of the house, Laurent d’Harcourt, explained that it was the first vintage that was declared following the departure of former president Patrice Noyelle. While the house was initially cautious of declaring back-to-back vintages (2012 and 2013), the quality of wines from 2013 has also resulted in the creation of a Blanc de Blancs and Churchill.

2013 vintage. 60% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay; from 20 Grand Cru and Premier Cru vineyards in the Montagne de Reims and Côte des Blancs; 8g/L dosage; Disgorgement in December 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.

It's never easy choosing foods when it comes to such wines as you never want to over power the wine. Instead of our research team looking at a direct suggestion like oysters or caviar (which would work a treat) they looked into what Winston Churchill was a fan of eating. It turns out, he was impartial to turtle soup (yes this was a thing back in London) and a cheese platter, particularly Swiss Gruyere. There you have it, an unusual but traditional pairing.
