Wine tasting note: 1988 Pol Roger Rose

1988 Pol Roger Rose

4th Sep 1997 GBP36 Champagne Sparkling Rose

Another fairly recent innovation.
The wine is made from a blend of red and white wines as the family believes this is more consistent than a maceration technique.
Pale, even salmon pink.
Delicate toasty nose with some perfumed berry fruit.
Very powerful, full bodied and mouth-filling. Oily, rich fruit with volatile, burnt rubber undertones, prickly lactic acidity and a long, dry, clean finish.
This is very much a food wine - matched with pork or game it would really show its paces.
