The Brut Vintage 2015 displays a lovely golden hue with silver highlights. The subtle first nose opens with notes of fleshy ethereal hints of rose petals. Expressive and full of freshness, the bouquet is reminiscent of patisserie, pastries and dried nuts. It then evolves to reveal aromas of honey and apple jelly. The palate is round and elegant. A slight zesty quality sets off the notes of brioche, patisserie and toast, combined with liquorice and dried nuts. The silky texture is accompanied by a lovely lingering acidity right through to the finish. The 2015 vintage brings us a warm and very fine champagne.

Synonymous with quality and prestige and being the Champagne of choice of Winston Churchill and more recently our own Royal Family, it is still a family run house with a reputation for producing elegant Champagnes, great for ageing. They only release a vintage Champagne in years where the climate permits perfect ripeness of the grapes so they will have great potential for ageing.

The Brut Vintage 2015 from Champagne Pol Roger is made from the traditional house vintage blend of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay from 20 Grands and Premiers crus vineyards in the Montagne de Reims and the Côte des Blancs.

Each variety and village are fermented separately until the final blending. After secondary fermentation in the bottle they are kept in the deepest reaches of the vast underground Pol Roger cellars with hand 'remuage' (riddling or turning of the bottles) for a number of years before disgorgement.

Beautiful served with a rich ham terrine
