Product description

Champagne Pol Roger only makes their Brut Vintage in the finest years, in very limited quantities ensuring the best quality. The Brut Vintage from Champagne Pol Roger is composed of the traditional house vintage blend of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay from 20 Grands and Premiers crus villages in the Montagne de Reims and the Côte des Blancs. Produced only in limited quantities the Brut Vintage 2012 has been aged for 8 years in our cellars before being disgorged and released onto the market. From the Winemaker: The Brut Vintage 2012 boasts a delicate pale golden color glinting with silver reflections. Its refined elegant bubbles give rise to a steady persistence underlined by a fine and regular foam. Refined and subtle, the nose is full of freshness and opens to the scent of white fruits (peach). The first aromas are reminiscent of dried fruits, followed by enticing notes of flowers, gingerbread and mild spices mingling with fragrances of Viennese pastries. The mouth is characterized by a neat and firm attack over freshness. It reveals a nice balance between roundness and suppleness on a complex structure. The crispness of the citrus fragrances lingers throughout the aftertaste and enhances the aromatic range of spices and fresh white fruits (peach) already present on the nose. Excellent aging potential. About the Brand: Founded in 1849, Pol Roger is one of only a few Grande Marque Champagne houses that remains family owned and operated. Having among the deepest (100 feet below ground) and coolest (48°F) cellars in Champagne provide perfect conditions for the “prise de mousse” (the development of the Champagne in bottle and the “finesse” of the “bead” or bubble) and for the long-ageing of the Champagne in bottle. All their Champagnes are aged longer than the legal requirement to add more complexity and fine bubbles in every bottle. Critical Acclaim: 2012: 93 points Wine Spectator, 96 points Wine Enthusiast, 94+ point Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, 94 points James Suckling "Fine and creamy, with a delicate frame of mouthwatering acidity, this harmonious Champagne offers well-meshed flavors of yellow plum, biscuit and grated ginger. Floral, spice and mineral accents mesh with the finish. Drink now through 2027." Alison Napjus, Wine Spectator, 93 points

FAQs

In the US, it is typically referred to as sparkling wine or California champagne. In Italy it is prosecco. In Spain they call it cava, and in Portugal it is espumante.
The average glass of Champagne is around 12% ABV (alcohol by volume) and usually comes in a four ounce serving, which means you'll get six full servings from a standard 750ml bottle.
Try adding a splash of juice like lemon, orange, or even cranberry to spice up cheaper Champagne. Elderflower liqueur is an ideal mixer for flavorful drinks, or you can add Chambord for a Kir Royale. Another possibility is to throw in a sugar cube, bitters and an orange peel for a classy, simple cocktail.  
Generally, the recommendation is to serve Champagne between 46°F and 50°F, but with certain wines you can let it warm up a tad more to bring out some additional flavors. You can either let it warm up in the glass, or get the bottle out of the fridge 20-30 minutes before serving if you'd like a slightly warmer temperature.
Standard white wine rules apply - keep it out of bright light, in a cool place where temperatures are as consistent as possible. For some that means a dedicated wine fridge or climate controlled cellar, but for most people just storing it in a dark closet or basement should be fine, especially if you're not planning to age it too long. For storage less than a month, it is fine for the bottles to be standing up, but plan to lay them down in a rack if you're storing it for any longer.
