Ripe, floral nose followed by a subtle sweetness which is offset by lively, natural acidity. Perfected suited as an accompaniment to sweet food.
Pol Roger is one of the few remaining great family-owned Champagne houses. An unrivalled reputation within the trade has been guaranteed by the consistent excellence of the wines: a tribute to the incredible diligence of the selection of the cuvees directed by members of the Pol Roger and de Billy families, in conjunction with the Président du Directoire, Patrice Noyelle, and the Chef des Caves, Dominique Petit.With stock equivalent to five years normal sales, a major investment programme, and among the coolest and deepest cellars in Epernay, the Pol Roger range of Champagnes offers a glimpse of the sublime.
Rich Demi Sec is composed of wines taken only from the cuvée (the first, light pressing) and, where appropriate, the taille (second pressing) which provides a higher proportion of essential tannins; the wines from the subsequent pressings are not used. Though 'demi-sec' translates as medium-dry, the style is far from cloying. The blend contains a dosage (final sweetening composed of a wine and cane sugar solution) of 34g/l, though the sweetness is offset by a lively natural acidity. In combination with sweet food and in particular wedding cake, an ideal balance is attained.
This Champagne is the perfect pairing for foie gras, rich poultry in creamy sauces, Asian and spicy food as well as puddings and buttery or nutty deserts.
