Tasting Notes – Pol Roger Extra Cuvee De Reserve Vintage 2004

champ_pol2004v1The 2004 vintage uses the traditional vintage blend of 60% pinot noir and 40% chardonnay from 20 Grands and Premiers crus vineyards from the famed mountains of Reims and the cote des blancs.

Produced in small quantities, this champagne has been cellared for 9 years prior to its release.

It has finesse and wonderful complexity with a long finish, showing characters of apple, white blossoms and minerality with layers of buttery nuts.

Perfect as a starter or with a range of food and promises great drinking through to 2020 at least, if stored well.
