Pol Roger 1999

Specification: Champaign
Vintage: 1999
Region: Champaign, France
Alcohol: 12.5%
Price: 87.00

Vintage champaign is pretty rare (and expensive). Only the best crop under the most ideal weather are used to make vintage champaign. Blanc de Blancs means this champaign is made exclusively from chardonnay. Both the Bollinger and Pol Rogers are amazing and equally good, but they offer rather different flavour profile at around the same price.

Quality: Excellent, complex, elegant

I would pair it with parfait or soft ripe flavour goat chèvres.
