“A vintage of high quality but very low quantity. Fine balance, clarity of flavour and wonderful complexity.”
Kick start your Spring with our great selection of wines and Champagnes.
The definitive Non-Vintage Champagne. Pol Roger is one of the few remaining great family-owned Champagne houses and enjoys an unrivalled reputation. Composed from 30 base wines from different vineyards and different vintages. The three main grape varieties of the champagne region Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay are in equal proportions. 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. Ready to drink upon release but cellaring for a few years will reveal greater depths.
Hemel-en-Aarde Valley, Western Cape, South Africa
Pale lemon coloured, the nose shows assertive spice, lemon zest, herbs and gooseberry aromas. Medium to full bodied with piercing acidity, it has a lovely broad texture, flavours of pink grapefruit and melon and a distinct minerality.
