Roger Pouillon et Fils Brut Reserve
|Brand||Roger Pouillon et Fils|
The NV Brut Reserve is a bend of 65% Pinot Noir, 20% Pinot Meunier and 15% Chardonnay from different villages and accounts for up to 50% of the total production. The latest disgorgement (November 2017) is based on the 2015 vintage and includes 40% of reserve wines, which age in foudres. The elegant and precise nose is deep, pure and chalky, and the palate is refined yet intense and pretty complex, especially in the quite long and expressive finish. This has very good concentration and refreshing terroir expression. This is an excellent NV Brut. Tasted April 2018.
Rich and sumptuous. A grand Champagne that fills the mouth with vanilla, toast, chocolate and honey flavors. Fine-textured, finishing with a hint of ginger. Drink now through 2009. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 2,084 cases made, 125 cases imported.
70% pinot noir, 15% pinot meunier and 15% chardonnay; L16108): Light gold. Smoky, floral orchard fruits and redcurrant on the perfumed nose. On the palate, sappy red fruit and bitter pear skin flavors are joined by building hints of buttered toast and rose pastille. Finishes chewy and long, with lingering smokiness and a touch of bitter quinine.
