Pol Roger NV Rich Demi-Sec

This sweeter style was reintroduced to satisfy the demand from markets where a semi-dry Champagne was required to pair with desserts, wedding cake and for those with a sweeter palate.

The Rich cuvée is a precise replica of the Brut Réserve Non-Vintage being blended from 30 still base wines from different vineyards, different vintages and the three main grape varieties which dominate the champagne region: Pinot Noir contributes body, depth of character and life-extending tannins and comes from the villages of the Montagne de Reims – Verzy, Verzenay, Mailly, Ambonnay, Mardeuil and Louvois; Chardonnay provides the lightness, elegance and finesse and is drawn from Épernay itself and the villages of the Côte des Blancs – Cuis, Oiry, Oger, Vertus, Moussy and Chouilly; Pinot Meunier supplies youthful freshness, vigour and plump character with the grapes coming from the Vallée d’Épernay – Vincelles, Venteuil, Troissy, Damery, Vandières, Brugny, Chavot, Monthelon and Pierry.

What makes Rich Non-Vintage different from Brut Réserve is the increased dosage of 34 g/L of sugar which makes it the perfect drink for occasions when something a little less dry is called for. This would be the ideal toast to serve with wedding cake but equally it complements tarts and crumbles.

The Rich cuvée displays a superb yellow-gold colour, with a discreet copper shimmer. It is deep, dense and bright. Tiny lingering bubbles break into a creamy, clear and diffused effervescence and form a continuous, full and delicate thread. At the outset, the nose is clear, elegant and open, combining notes of dried fruit, floral fragrances and attractive woody scents, which develop into a delicate spiciness. On the palate the wine is ample, powerful and complex, and remarkable for its generosity as well as its power, suppleness and balance. Its pleasing vivacity culminates in succulent fruity flavours together with spicy, soft and sensuous notes. The unmistakable sweetness balances well with all other elements. With the taste of light caramel to extend its intensity, the aftertaste is fresh and amazingly long.
