2008 pol roger, brut vintage
Why We're Buying
Balance, finesse, and a touch of sweetness are on full display in Pol Roger Brut Vintage. The limited-release Champagne requires three years of aging before it can be disgorged. The result is a classic Champagne with a steadily rising price tag.
Attractive red berries, nectarines and biscuity notes with a hint of spice, too, and a sweet-smelling freshness to it. The palate delivers a very attractive and concentrated array of yellow stone fruit flavors. Smooth and creamy, sorbet-like finish. Drink now or age.
Wine & Spirits
Focused on pinot noir (60 percent) and supported by chardonnay, this wine has crunchy green-olive notes and autumnal red fruit. It shows the cool vintage in its salty mineral tang and firm mousse, a lifted Champagne to pour with rich fall dishes, like poached lobster over butternut squash purée.
