The Brut Réserve is a blend in equal parts of the three champenois grape varieties: pinot noir, pinot meunier and chardonnay from 30 different crus. 25% reserve wines are used to produce this cuvée. Once harvested, the grapes are immediately and delicately pressed. The must undergoes a first settling (settling) at the press house and a second in the winery, à froid (at 6°C) over a 24 hour period. The alcoholic fermentation takes place at a low temperature (18°C) in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats, with each variety and the production of each village kept separate until final blending. All wines go through a malolactic fermentation. After tasting, blending and bottling, the secondary fermentation (prize de mousse) and maturing take place in the cool atmosphere of cellars located 33 meters below street level. Each bottle is given a traditional remuage (hand riddling) before disgorging and dosage, and the wines rest for a minimum of three months before being released. Bottled at 12.5%. (Bottle size 750ml)
Pol Roger Réserve Brut
“Pale yellow. Toasty melon and white peach on the nose, with orange zest and dusty minerals emerging with air. Lively, mineral-laced citrus and orchard fruit flavors show good palate-coating intensity without any excess weight. The clinging finish displays a subtle floral quality and repeating orange and melon notes.” – Josh Raynolds, Antonio Galloni’s Vinous
