Pol Roger Brut Reserve N.V.

A hard-won success

From Pol Roger and the Cham¬≠pagne region in France comes this sparkling cuvee that ranks in the top 1% of all wines in the world.

TAST­ING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

With its beau¬≠ti¬≠ful gold col¬≠or, its del¬≠i¬≠cate aro¬≠ma, and its fine bub¬≠bles, it‚Äôs easy to see why the Pol Roger Brut Reserve is one of the best cham¬≠pagnes in the world.

This stun­ning cuvee is made with equal parts pinot noir (which gives struc­ture and body), pinot meu­nier (which brings fresh­ness and fruiti­ness), and chardon­nay (which lends it its aro­mat­ic com­plex­i­ty, light­ness, and elegance).

Aged for four years in the Pol Roger cel¬≠lars, it gives notes of green apple and peach, with hints of brioche and bis¬≠cuit, fin¬≠ish¬≠ing off with sug¬≠ges¬≠tions of cit¬≠rus, lemon and lime. 

PREPA­RA­TION AND PAIRINGS

This is a cham¬≠pagne for all occa¬≠sions, and remark¬≠able as an ap√©ri¬≠tif. Toast to good times over a plate of mild and soft cheeses, like gruy√®re, hal¬≠lou¬≠mi, feta, and camembert.

Or have it dur¬≠ing meal times. It would be mag¬≠nif¬≠i¬≠cent paired with fresh oys¬≠ters. We sug¬≠gest the Tar¬≠bouriech Spe¬≠ciale, to tru¬≠ly height¬≠en the expe¬≠ri¬≠ence. Or a plate of fresh¬≠ly made creamy mush¬≠room risot¬≠to, or even a lob¬≠ster dish.

Grab a glass to sip along with a lemon tart or a dark choco¬≠late mousse for dessert.

A STO­RY OF PERSEVERANCE

Pol Roger put up his busi¬≠ness in around 1849, under slight¬≠ly des¬≠per¬≠ate cir¬≠cum¬≠stances. His father had con¬≠tract¬≠ed an incur¬≠able dis¬≠ease, and could no longer con¬≠tin¬≠ue his notary prac¬≠tice. Ear¬≠ly on, Pol Roger knew that he want¬≠ed to focus on the pro¬≠duc¬≠tion of brut Cham¬≠pagne. The brand had gained size¬≠able recog¬≠ni¬≠tion by the time the founder died in 1899.

Despite part of their cel­lars col­laps­ing in 1900, and the rise of The Pro­hi­bi­tion in the Unit­ed States in the 1920’s, Pol Roger Cham­pagne per­se­vered, and kept on, and enjoyed good sales in many countries.

Win­ston Churchill’s sup­port and praise for the brand helped its rep­u­ta­tion and sales con­sid­er­ably post-war. And from the year 2000, Pol Roger Cham­pagne has only grown, adopt­ing more expan­sive sales strate­gies, and launch­ing new cuvees, cement­ing its 160-year rep­u­ta­tion as one of the lead­ing cham­pagne brands.

Storage Instructions

Fine sparkling wine must be han¬≠dled with care. For short-term stor¬≠age (a few days to a month), you can keep your bot¬≠tle upright‚ÄČ‚ÄĒ‚ÄČbut away from bright or arti¬≠fi¬≠cial light. For long-term stor¬≠age, espe¬≠cial¬≠ly for vin¬≠tage cuv√©es, you must store the bot¬≠tles on their side in a wine rack or cel¬≠lar to keep the cork from dry¬≠ing out. The ide¬≠al tem¬≠per¬≠a¬≠ture for stor¬≠age is between 7 to 10¬įC. Once opened, a bot¬≠tle will be good for 1 to 3 days stand¬≠ing upright in the refrigerator.
