Winemaker's Notes:

The 1993 Vintage in Champagne was the finest for Pol Roger since 1990, producing stylish, well structured wines with fine fruit and balanced acidity.

Pol Roger Rose 1993 has an attracive salmon color, ethereal mousse, and fresh and vibrant strawberry tones of ripe Pinot Noir on the bouquet. The palate is firm, full-flaovred and lively, with a refreshing acidity and a clean-cut, lingering finish.

Being a vintage wine, this 1993 Rose will age gracefully, though most will prefer to drink it while comparatively fresh and youthful (within the five years of 2000--2005).

About Pol Roger:

Pol Roger is one of the few remaining family-owned grande marque Champagne houses. Their grande marque status was guaranteed at the turn of the century when about 20 producers banded together to establish exacting quality controls for Champagne. The annual production at Pol Roger - less than 120,000 cases - is found in the best restaurants of France, England, and the USA, and is exported to over 30 countries. Pol Roger also was the Champagne of choice of British dignitary Sir Winston Churchill, who once said of Champagne, "...In victory I deserve it, and in defeat I need it!".
