Pol Roger Blanc de blancs 2012

Pol Roger has released its 2012 Blanc de Blancs, made from 100% Chardonnay sourced from the grands crus of the Côte des Blancs: Oiry, Chouilly, Cramant, Avize and Oger. In 2012, warm weather in late March led to advanced budbreak, followed by rain, mild weather and frost in April and May, with some vineyards hit by hail, owing to variation in the development of grapes.

However, hot and sunny weather from late July to September ensured ideal maturity. On the nose, “notes of dried fruits and hazelnut, with touches of citrus and exotic fruits, lead to aromas of peach and apricot”. On the palate, “notes of citrus are underpinned by a bright acidity”.

RRP: £80.
