Pol Roger only produces the Brut Rosé in vintage years. The wine is a blend of 50% Pinot Noir, 35% Chardonnay vinified blanc from 20 1er and Grand Crus in the Montagne de Reims and Cote des Blancs regions. The remaining 15% is Pinot Noir that has been vinified "en rouge" and then added to the final blend prior to the second fermentation.
Vinification: The unblended juice undergoes primary fermentation in stainless steel tanks at a cool 43°f. Each variety, village and vineyard are always fermented and cellared separately until final blending. Secondary fermentation takes place in bottle deep in the cellars of Pol Roger, where it is kept until final blending.
The Vintage Brut is typically a delicate rosé, soft pink in color and driven by red fruit.
The 1993 Vintage in Champagne was the finest for Pol Roger since 1990, producing stylish, well structured wines with fine fruit and balanced acidity. Pol Roger Rose 1993 has an attracive salmon color, ethereal mousse, and fresh and vibrant strawberry tones of ripe Pinot Noir on the bouquet. The palate is firm, full-flaovred and lively, with a refreshing acidity and a clean-cut, lingering finish. Being a vintage wine, this 1993 Rose will age gracefully, though most will prefer to drink it while comparatively fresh and youthful (within the five years of 2000--2005).

Salmon-skin color. Subtle raspberry, floral and biscuity aromas. Intensely flavored and on the dry side, with subtle flavors of spiced apple and minerals. Strong but integrated acidity is nicely buffered by the wine extract. Finishes dry, long and brisk, with a slighty harsh suggestion of pear skin and a distinctly tactile quality. 90 points
