A champagne which is considered the perfect aperitif! Pol Roger Brut Réserve Non-Vintage was served at the reception following the wedding Prince Harry to Meghan Markle in 2018. It therefore seems a fitting way to begin our Angel at Home adventure.
Pol Roger is revered for its ability to produce each year a blend which is consistent in style and quality. Elegant and refined, a cuvée fit for all occasions.
The Brut Réserve is a blend in equal parts of the three champagne grape varieties: pinot noir, pinot meunier and chardonnay from 30 different crus. It displays a beautiful golden straw colour, as well as an abundance of fine bubbles. It holds a powerful and attractive nose, first delivering aromas of fruit and then releasing light flavours of honeysuckle and white jasmine, lingering on vanilla and brioche notes.
The wine has a harmonious and a pleasant freshness, whilst still preserving structure. On the palate, flavours of cooked fruit (quince jelly, apricot jam might come to mind).
This Champagne is truly outstanding, one fit for royalty and us meer ‘common folk’ alike. Let’s take a moment and clink our flutes and say…
