Pol-Roger-Brut-Rose-Vintage-2008

Pol Roger, Brut Rose Vintage, 2008

“Pol Roger does not make a non-vintage rosé Champagne, preferring instead to release its rosé expression only in vintage years. The 2008 vintage is made from a blend of 50% Pinot Noir and 35% Chardonnay, harvested from some 20 premier and grand crus in the Montagne de Reims and Côte des Blanc.

A further 15% of Pinot Noir, produced from grapes harvested from selected vineyards in Bouzy, Ambonnay and Cumieres, is vinified “en rouge” and added to the blend prior to the second fermentation to achieve a delicate color and “subtle nose”. Disgorged in July 2015, the 2008 rosé has been left to rest on its lees for nearly seven years, far longer than the minimum three-year requirement, in cellars that stretch for 7km some 30m beneath Pol Roger’s headquarters in Epernay." —From The Drinks Business
