The 2000 Brut Vintage from Champagne Pol Roger 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 Côte des Blancs. Produced only in limited quantities the Brut Vintage 2000 has been aged for 8 years in our cellars before being disgorged and released onto the market.
A golden yellow colour, with a multitude of tiny, glittering bubbles. The nose is fresh, clean-cut and appealing, with ripe, expressive fruit ans scents redolent of the countryside: narcissus and iris, fruit preserves (dried apricots and poached pears) and honey. The impressions translate on the palate to a texture that is both rounded and firm-centred, giving the wine its full-bodied consistency. Warming in the glass, the fruity aromas develop a pleasing generosity. The wine is at once full-bodied and of examplary finesse. A champagne of harmony, elegance and generosity.
Ideal to drink as an apéritif with lightly peppered mini-toasts of foie gras, or with a hot entrée of pan-fried foie gras or a cold dish of Pata Négra ham. Rich, full-flavoured dishes (especially those which are smooth, mellow and savoury) offer an assured accompaniment, such as veal sweetbreads, lam with a morel sauce or chicken with truffles ... Distinctive dry cheeses (especially ewe and goat's milk) respond well to the fruit characters and minerality of the wine
