Pol Roger "White Foil - Extra Cuvée de Réserve" Brut Champagne
Allen Meadows - Burghound
This is, not surprisingly, actually quite similar to the Pure but with just a bit more complexity and a hair more toastiness. This is also intensely effervescent with a mouth feel that is exceptionally vibrant before culminating in clean, cool, persistent and impressively refreshing finish. This is a pleasure to drink and it could be enjoyed now or held for additional development though I like the energy if offers now. A fine value.
Pale yellow. Toasty melon and white peach on the nose, with orange zest and dusty minerals emerging with air. Lively, mineral-laced citrus and orchard fruit flavors show good palate-coating intensity without any excess weight. The clinging finish displays a subtle floral quality and repeating orange and melon notes.
Fresh and open-knit, this chalky Champagne offers lively notes of green apple and crunchy white peach fruit, spring blossom, biscuit and candied lemon zest. Drink now through 2018.
Wine & Spirits
Richer and sweeter than the Pure Extra Brut, this wine is rounded by dosage, lending it broader appeal. The scent is cedary and smoky, the flavors satisfying and complete.
