The Blanc de Blancs is a speciality of the house, made from 100% Chardonnay sourced from Grand Cru vineyards, solely in the Côte des Blancs. The Blanc de Blancs, as with all the other Pol Roger wines, undergoes the traditional hand remuage (the turning of the bottles).
Champagne Pol Roger was established by Pol Roger back in 1849, and continues to be managed by his family members, who have maintained standards set by him of excellence and consistency whilst continuing to broaden the range of styles on offer. Their champagnes are noted for long cellar ageing before they are released, along with their fine, persistent mousse, which have always found favour with connoisseurs in the UK.
Experts with the Chardonnay grape, Pol Roger handle it beautifully here. This Champagne spent a long time on its lees, creating a superb richness and intensity, that is balanced out by flinty, chalky qualities and a remarkable freshness for its age.
