Winemaker's Notes:

The Vintage Brut follows the traditional formula for Pol Roger Vintage, being composed of about 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay drawn from 18 Grands and Premiers Crus. As always, the Pinot Noirs contribute the intensity, backbone, tannins and "body" while the Chardonnays provide the fragrance, elegance, finesse essential to a perfect balance. The 1990 is distinguished by a pale golden color and a lively abundant mousse. The nose is powerful, appealing and complex; the palate, perfectly harmonious, fresh, intense and lively with exceptional fruit. This vintage will develop well into the first decade of the next millennium.

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!".
