2006 Brut Champagne Pol Roger
|Grapes||Chardonnay, Pinot Noir|
The 2006 Brut Vintage is an excellent choice for drinking now, as the flavors are just beginning to show the first signs of development. Peach, apricot, brioche, mint and sweet white flowers open up in a gracious, complex Champagne that is super-expressive today. The weight of Pinot Noir comes through beautifully in the 2006, a resonant and inviting Champagne that hits all the right notes. Rating: 92 L&S (Nov 2015)

Churchill’s favourite champagne is always a treat and the 2006 doesn’t disappoint. This bounces out of the glass with notes of apple and brioche and a rich, nutty finish. A wonderful pairing with smoked salmon, it has an uplifting acidity that makes it a perfect wine to serve just before Christmas lunch. Will Lyons, The Sunday Times (Dec 2016)
If Bollinger’s Grande Année 2006 has an autumnal grandeur, the Pol Roger Brut Vintage 2006 is pure springtime: green, sappy, leafy, with just a whisper of bread, powder and talc to sweeten it. This is a Pinot-rich blend in which all overt ‘Pinotness’ has been transmuted into a light, chalky essence and a stony sappiness. Long, searching, deliciously tense — yet ripe, not raw: another superb steel-schooled effort. Decanter Magazine Rating: 94 Andrew Jefford (Mar 2016)
Restrained appley nose, still quite austere. The attack is rich and broad, and the palate full-bodied, with depth and power. With flavours of grilled nuts, this is a tasty, compact style, but it has vibrancy too. The acidity is in the background, but it gives good length.

Champagne Pol Roger
Champagne Pol Roger is one of the very few remaining houses still owned and run by the founding family, who remain responsible for the winemaking and selection of the cuvées each year. Originally founded in Aÿ in 1849 by Pol Roger, the firm then moved to Épernay in 1851. The First World War had a huge impact on the firm, putting any expansion plans to rest, and Prohibition in America made exports much more difficult. During the Second World War when the Germans occupied France, all production and buying of Champagne was controlled by the Wehrmacht. However, the War caused Winston Churchill to become a prominent figurehead throughout the world, and his love of Pol Roger was widely known. So much so that the House created their special Cuvée Winston Churchill in 1975.
