2006 Pol Roger Vintage Champagne -
This vintage Champagne has a rich, soft golden glow in the glass. The nose has elements of brioche, toasted almonds over notes of sweet stone fruit and white peach. The palate is just as the nose suggests it will be, enveloping the tastebuds and gently caressing them one by one. And yet it remains bright and lively, with a very linear core of acidity. This is approachable and easy-going and yet clearly of very fine, well-defined quality.
