Champagne Reserve Brut Pol Roger
Between sec and demi-sec, “Cuvee Rich” is marked by a perfect harmony characterized by the balance between sugar and natural sourness. It is a blend produced with three varieties that compose this excellent Champagne: Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay, coming from 30 different crus. The harvest is followed by soft pressing. The stabilisation of the must (débourbage) is managed in two steps: first in the wine making area of the Maison Pol Roger, and then a second time in the winery “a froid” (6°C) for 24 hours. The alcoholic fermentation is developed in steel containers at a controlled temperature of 18°C. Each variety is worked separately till the assembly. All the Champagne Pol Roger pass through a complete malolactic fermentation. After the tasting, the assembling and the bottling, the second fermentation and the maturation are managed in the cellars of the Maison, located 33 meters underground. Traditional “remuage” and at least 3 months maturation.
