Chardonnay Pinot Noir Pinot Meunier Champagne, Epernay France
The definitive Pol Roger styling, dominated by Pinot Noir from the villages of Montagne de Reims, the choicest parcels are set aside for their excellence. The lightness and elegance of Chardonnay from the town of Epernay itself and Cote des Blancs, perfection in pink, the noble House of Pol Roger will never release Vintage RosÃ© until it is aged at least seven years under the Roger cellars. The very fine and persistent mousse for which Pol Roger is renown, owes much to these deep, dark, damp and cool temperature cellars.
Pol Roger are one of the few remaining great family owned Champagne houses. As one of the smaller estates, Champagne Pol Roger own eighty seven hectares of vineyards on prime sites in the Vallee d'Epernay and the CÃ´te des Blancs, drawing the remainder of their supplies from individual growers, many of whom have supplied Pol Roger for generations. The estate cellars, extending seven kilometers, lie on three levels in the chalk below the streets of Epernay and are among the deepest and coolest cellars in the region. These seemingly extravagant resources contribute to the slow maturation and creation of fine, persistent bubbles which are the hallmark of Pol Roger.
