Pol Roger Reserve Brut NV (Champagne)

When I'm looking to splurge a little, this has become my go-to Champagne. I’ve had it a few times recently as well so I thought it was worth writing up. You can pick it up for around $55-$60.

A champagne that is creamy, yeasty, mouthfilling, and has great effervescence. Beautiful citrus and red fruits. There’s no questioning the crowd pleasing capabilities here. Nevertheless, it remains balanced throughout, and is underpinned by a lovely acidity. Finishes long and dry. It perhaps lacks the complexity for a higher score, but for sheer Champagne joy it’s hard to go past.



RRP: $70
Closure: Cork
