POL ROGER 2012 VINTAGE CHAMPAGNE
Champagne’s geographical location engenders unpredictable weather. For this reason, since their foundation in 1849 Pol Roger has observed the tradition of not releasing a vintage-dated champagne unless the climatic conditions permit the production of grapes of outstanding ripeness. 2012 had such conditions.
The first aromas are reminiscent of dried fruits, followed by enticing notes of flowers, gingerbread and mild spices mingling with fragrances of Viennese pastries.
The mouth is characterized by a neat and firm attack over freshness. It reveals a nice balance between roundness and suppleness on a complex structure. The crispness of the citrus fragrances lingers throughout the aftertaste and enhances the aromatic range of spices and fresh white fruits (peach) already present on the nose.
