The Vintage Brut 1995 is rich, powerful and flavorsome with an expressive palate. In style and quality is not unlike one of its illustrious predecessors, the 1985.
It has an intense, radiant golden color with traces of warm amber. There is a persistent stream of very fine, regular sized bubbles that rise upwards to a delicate, full durable ‘cordon' at the rim.
Initially discreet, even closed, its nose combine an extreme delicacy with subtle complexity, skillfully combining some gentle, leafy aromas (straw, cut flowers) and equally understated dried fruit aromas (almonds, apricots) before blossoming into an abundance of competing aromas: fruity (fruit candy), lactic (beurrre noisette) and spicy (mille-fleurs honey, gingerbread) which arouse more obvious empyreumatic fragrances (mild tobacco, light caramel).
Superb initial taste sensations, lively and mellow, develop into a full-bodied well-balanced palate. Delicious pastry flavors (pain aux raisins, kugelhopf buns) accompany intense, persistent vegetal notes (Alba truffles). Omnipresent, very fine bubbles, in partnership with demonstrative candied flavors and more restrained flavors of mature rum reveal the presence of a great Champagne. And for the ultimate pleasure, the velvety, lace-like finish develops against a lightly spiced (vanilla) background.

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!".
Champagne is both a region and a method. The wines come from the northernmost vineyards in France and the name conjures an image like no other can. An 18th Century Benedictine monk named Dom Perignon is said to be the first to blend both varietals and vintages, making good wines not only great, but also special and unique to their winemaker. Today, nearly 75% of Champagne...Read More About Champagne
