Champagne Pol Roger Vintage 2006
The Champagne Pol Roger Vintage 2006 is made from the traditional house vintage blend of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay from 20 Grands and Premiers crus vineyards in the “Montagne de Reims” and the “Cote des Blancs”. Produced only in limited quantities the Brut Vintage 2006 has been aged for 9 years in our cellars before being disgorged and released onto the market.
Champagne Pol Roger Vintage 2006 is perhaps best known as Winston Churchill’s favourite Champagne. The House remains family-owned and has a reputation for producing Champagnes of finesse and elegance which age very well.
It is the balance that stars with this wine. The fruit, acidity and mineral texture are held together in maturing harmony. Still young, the wine is still in the fruity spectrum and yet is very ready to drink now. The acidity and the link between the soft dosage and freshness are all in place. Drink now and until 2026
This is a vintage Pol Roger which is immediately very, very likeable – positively luxurious in its weight and complexity. On the nose it is showing layers of character, soft peach and ripe, almost autumnal apples with a frame of fresh honeycomb. The palate is no different, the weight of fruit in the mid-palate means that this can be enjoyed now. The white pear, crisp apple and spicy white pepper notes taper to a taut close with finishing acidity which is trademark Pol Roger.
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 backgound, but it gives good length.
