VintageVino Pick of the Day: Pol Roger Brut Reserve, nv
It is hard to say how many bottles of Pol Roger I have had over the years, but it certainly has not been enough. Tonight I added yet another to the long line that hopefully continues far into the future. The thing that I love about PR is that as soon as the cork is popped the room fills with the lovely aroma of fresh, yeasty bread. My mouth is watering before the wine hits the glass and that first sip just brings me back to my earliest days of encounter with the great CHAMPAGNE. Lovely wine. A bit luxurious these days, but you only live once - you must treat yourself every-now-and-again!
