Winemaker's Notes:

The 1998 vintage in Champagne produced wines of classical structure. This is a firm, fine, elegant champagne with refreshing acidity and ripe fruit on the palate. Perfect as an aperitif or with light appetizers, fish or shellfish.

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!".
