The Cuvée Pol Roger Brut Vintage 2008 is a champagne based on an assemblage of the house Pol Roger: 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay from the 20 Grands and Premier Cru situations of the Montagne de Reims and the Côtes des Blancs. It was, filled only in a restricted bottle number which matured for 8 years in the cellars before they came into the sale.
Vinification and maturation:
After the harvest the grapes were pressed fast and carefully. Already during the pressing process the grape juice was, cleared statically for the first time, the degumming took place at 6° degrees Celsius in the wine cellars for 24 hours a second time.
The alcoholic fermentation took place at cool 18° degrees Celsius in thermal regulated high-grade steel tanks where the individual types of vine and situations became vinified before the final assemblage. The malolactic fermentation is carried out with all wines of the house. After the testing, assemblage and filling the foam formation and the maturation of the Cuvées takes place in the cool cellars at 33 metres of depth. Every bottle is riddled by hand like in the past before the yeast is removed and the dosage added.
