Pol Roger Brut Reserve NV Champagne 75CL
Ideal as an accompaniment to fish.
Wild brown trout is one of our favorite things. This is partly because of the great meat, the fantastic colours, and flavour of the fish. But also because if we are eating Brown trout it normally means we have spent a day on the river bank fishing!
On the nose, the champagne is dominated by white flowers, green apple, brioche and a trace of minerality.
On the palate there are notes of stone fruits, a certain nuttiness and a hint of honey supporting the freshness of the acidity.
UK stock receives an additional 6 months post-disgorgement ageing so it is ready to drink upon release but cellaring for a few years will reveal greater depths.
The apéritif champagne par excellence but one which has sufficient backbone to be drunk with fish and even spicy dishes.
