Pol Roger Blanc de Blancs, Champagne Brut 2009

£ 80.00

On the nose, the champagne is dominated by white flowers, green apple, brioche and a trace of minerality. On the palate there are notes of stone fruits, a certain nuttiness and a hint of honey supporting the freshness of the acidity.Renowned as the prefered Champagne of Sir Winston Churhill. This blend is composed from 30 still 'base wines' drawn from at least two vintages, and the three varieties of Champagne (Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier) blended in equal portions. The Pinot Noir comes from the villages of the Montagne de Reims and contributes body and character; the Chardonnay comes from Epernay itself and the Cte des Blancs and provides lightness and elegance; the Pinot Meunier comes from the Valle de la Marne and provides youthfulness and vigour.
