Pol Roger "Pure" Brut Champagne (Previously $75)

SKU #1050765 91 points Wine Enthusiast

 Pol Roger’s excursion into a bone-dry Champagne brings a house style with natural weight up against an almost bony wine style. The resulting mix is certainly dry, edgy, very crisp, leaning towards austere. Extra bottle time would help the wine to gain weight and flesh out the structure.  (12/2009)

90 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

 First released in 2007, Pure is a zero dosage champagne, 33% each chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot meunier. A wonderfully elegant very pretty nose of citrus, brioche and floral nuances gives way to robust flavors that possess a borderline aggressive effervescence. There is a real sense of vibrancy here that is enhanced by the clean, crisp and lightly citrus-infused finish that displays just a hint of bitterness that good Champagne sometimes does.  (9/2012)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The NV Brut Nature Extra Cuvee de Reserve Pure is an attractive, mid-weight Champagne with excellent delineation, fine overall balance and a round, pleasing finish.  (12/2010)

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
Sub-Region:

Champagne

- The French region of Champagne (comprised of the towns of Rheims, Epernay, and Ay) was the first region in the world to make sparkling wine in any quantity. Today, the name of the region is synonymous with the finest of all sparkling wines, and winemaking traditions of Champagne have become role models for sparkling wine producers, worldwide. Surprisingly, the region of Champagne is now responsible for only one bottle in 12 of all sparkling wine produced. Styles of champagne range from the basic brut (often blends of several vintages), single vintage champagnes, and rose.
