The initial nose offers fine aromas of raspberry and redcurrant; if allowed to develop in the glass, the wine reveals notes of wild strawberry bolstered by the seductive and characteristic scents of Pinot Noir. On the palate the harmonious beld of red fruit notes carries through, offering an outstanding balance of freshness supported by some hints of citrus fruit, as well as a rich structure.

The Pol Roger Rosé Vintage is based on Pol Roger Brut Vintage (60% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay) to which they add, before the bottling and second fermentation, approximately 15% of still red wine (Pinot Noir) from the best crus of the Montagne de Reims. Produced only in limited quantities, the Brut Rosé Vintage 2008 is aged 7 years in our cellars before being released onto the market.
"The must undergoes two débourbages (settlings), one at the press house immediatly after pressing and the second, a débourbage à froid, in stainless steel tanks at 6°C over a 24 hour period. A slow cool fermentation with the temperature kept under 18°C takes place in stainless steel with each variety and each village kept seperate. The wine undergoes a full malolactic-fermentation prior to final blending. Secondary fermentation takes place in bottle at 9°C in the deepest Pol Roger cellars (33 metres below street level) where the wine is kept until it undergoes remuage (riddling) by hand, a rarity in Champagne nowadays. The very fine and persistent mousse for which Pol Roger is renowned owes much to these deep, cool and damp cellars."
