Pol Roger Blanc de Chardonnay 2009

Product Description

Bright and limey on the palate underscored by a long and stylish acidity with impressive balance.

Pol Roger was born on Christmas Eve in 1831, the fIrst son of Pierre Charles Jean-Baptiste Roger, a lawyer based in Ay. Pol chose not to follow his father's footsteps, but received his support when he announced that he wanted to set up as a negociant or wholesaler. This he did at the age of seventeen using his father's business contacts as customers.

1849 saw the birth of the new Champagne house as Pol began to create his own cuv‚es rather than bringing in wine from other houses. The first Pol Roger Cuv‚es went on sale in 1853 and his sales in the first six months were 3769 bottles and 825 half bottles. Today that has grown to around 1.5 million per annum.

Pol Roger recently celebrated its 150th anniversary and is perhaps best known as Winston Churchill's favourite Champagne. The house is still family-owned and has a reputation for producing champagnes of great finesse and elegance which age very well.

The 1996 vintage shows all the hallmarks of an outstanding year refelcting the high natural sugar content of the grapes and an excellent level of acidity achieving superb balance. The colour is golden and the nose shows a weighty fruit with citrus notes. On the palate a limey character develops with an impressive richness and near perfect balance. This is a Champagne that will develop nicely over the next few years.
