Winemaker's Notes:

A golden yellow straw-like color, bright and full of intensity with attractive lingering bubbles. A fine nose with enticing notes of fresh honey, candied grapefruit and lime. On the palate, a dominating fruitiness with light biscuit character, with a full and long fresh texture. The wine is balanced with remarkable harmony. An amazingly pure champagne.

The Brut Vintage 2002 enhances dishes of distinctive character, like chicken with a foie gras stuffing, capon with morel mushrooms and chicken supreme.

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!".
