The Brut Blanc de Blancs 1999 from Champagne Pol Roger is a classic blanc de blancs, vinified 100% from Chardonnay grapes selected from the Grands Crus of the Côte des Blancs: Cramant, le Mesnil, Oger, Avize and Oiry. Made in only limited quantities the Brut Blanc de Blancs 1999 has been aged for 7 years in the Pol Roger cellars before being released onto the market.
A light, lively colour with fine bubbles.
The nose starts off exuberant and generous, revealing a wide range of complex aromas: marshmallow, violets, liquorice, brioche, toast and almonds. In the second nose, these notes develop a more powerful resonance of musk, leather and even iodine, signature of the noble origin of the Chardonnays and the evolution of the mature character of the 1999 vintage.
In the mouth, the bold attack develops into a balance of fullness and strength, giving way to retro-olfactory notes dominated by fuitiness (fresh fruit), underpinned by a "ground swell" of power that gives the wine its structure. A champagne whose current elegance and robustness promise great organoleptic development.
Pol Roger Brut Blanc de Blancs 1999 will be the perfect accompaniment for a gourmet dish where the dominant character is based on the combination of roasted notes with a sweet and savoury sauce, to sustain the powerfull, complex nature of the wine. Roasted duck fillet with a sweet and sour sauce or wild partridge with caramelised pears would provide marriage.
