Pol Roger Rich Nv

Product Description

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 Rich blend is traditionally composed from around 30 still base wines, drawn from different vineyards, grape varieties and vintage years. The wine contains about 33% Pinot Noir drawn from villages of the Montagne de Reims: 33% Pinot Noir from the Vallee d'Epernay: and 33% Chardonnay from Epernay and the Cote des Blancs.

Rich Demi Sec is composed of wines taken only from the cuv‚e (the first, light pressing) and, where appropriate, the taille (second pressing) which provides a
higher proportion of essential tannins; the wines from the subsequent pressings are not used.

Though ?demi-sec? translates as medium-dry, the style is far from cloying. The blend contains a dosage (final sweetening composed of a wine and cane sugar
solution) of 34g/l, though the sweetness is offset by a lively natural acidity. In combination with sweet food and in particular wedding cake, an ideal balance is
attained.
