Champagne Pol Roger 2009 Vintage
Thank you all for the birthday wishes! I had a fabulous day yesterday which of course involved plenty of bubbly including this Pol Roger Champagne 2009 Vintage Brut which went down exceptionally well with our picnic.

It’s made from 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay and retails for approximately $114. I bought this bottle from Dan Murphy’s.

Pol Roger NV was the very first champagne I can remember tasting (when I worked at Glengarry in Auckland, New Zealand). From that point, I knew champagne was the drink for me!

Naturally, in true birthday girl style, I had to Sabre it open. Thank you Mr Spittoon for capturing the moment.

In the glass, this 09 champagne is a sparkly lemon shade with very tiny shimmering bubbles. The nose evokes thoughts of fresh bread, floral perfume and vanilla citrus. While in the mouth it’s smooth and round with an incredibly long citrusy finish. It’s got a peachy, nectarine oomph however it has incredibly moreish delicacy to it. More please!

Champagne Pol Roger 2008 Vintage

Champagne Pol Roger 2008

Mr Spittoon and I had a little celebration this week. However I do strongly believe that Champagne isn’t just for celebrations. It’s for whenever the mood strikes (and bank balance allows it).

Pol Roger was one of the first French champagnes I tried when I was 18 and I fell in love instantly. I spotted this 2008 vintage at Dan Murphy’s for $115 and couldn’t resist. Here’s what I thought…

It’s a very pale golden hue in the glass. The nose has an abundance of grapefruit citrus, fresh herbs and milk arrowroot biscuits. While in the mouth it’s ultra smooth and silky with refreshing orange citrus and tasty pineapple flavours coming through. YUM!
