WINE / CHAMPAGNE & SPARKLING

POL ROGER

http://polroger.fr/

Pol Roger founded his Champagne house in 1849 and is still proudly independent, under family control.  it owns 88 hectares of the vineyards on prime sites in the Vallée d’Epernay and on the Côte des Blancs.  Its cellars run for 7km and are on three levels, the deepest known as the ‘cave de prise de mousse’ at 33m below street level.  As the name suggests this is where the wine undergoes its secondary fermentation in bottle. The fact that this deep cellar is at 9 degrees or less, rather than a normal cellar temperature of 11-12 degrees, prolongs this fermentation and contributes to the quality and particular style of the wines and their famously fine bubbles. 

The Pol Roger range starts with three non vintage champagnes (Brut Réserve, Pure and Rich) which are images of the Brut Réserve, the Rich with a slightly higher dosage and the Pure, at the other end of the scale, being sans dosage.  Non vintage champagnes are a blend of several vintages (in Pol Roger’s case rarely less than three or four).  The advantage offered to this style is that a skilful winemaker can balance the strengths and weakness of individual harvests to create a consistent blend.  By contrast Vintage Champagne, the wine of a single year, must rely entirely on the character and relative success of that harvest alone.
