    Winemaker's Notes:

    The Vintage Brut 1995 is rich, powerful and flavorsome with an expressive palate. In style and quality is not unlike one of its illustrious predecessors, the 1985.

    It has an intense, radiant golden color with traces of warm amber. There is a persistent stream of very fine, regular sized bubbles that rise upwards to a delicate, full durable ‘cordon' at the rim.

    Initially discreet, even closed, its nose combine an extreme delicacy with subtle complexity, skillfully combining some gentle, leafy aromas (straw, cut flowers) and equally understated dried fruit aromas (almonds, apricots) before blossoming into an abundance of competing aromas: fruity (fruit candy), lactic (beurrre noisette) and spicy (mille-fleurs honey, gingerbread) which arouse more obvious empyreumatic fragrances (mild tobacco, light caramel).

    Superb initial taste sensations, lively and mellow, develop into a full-bodied well-balanced palate. Delicious pastry flavors (pain aux raisins, kugelhopf buns) accompany intense, persistent vegetal notes (Alba truffles). Omnipresent, very fine bubbles, in partnership with demonstrative candied flavors and more restrained flavors of mature rum reveal the presence of a great Champagne. And for the ultimate pleasure, the velvety, lace-like finish develops against a lightly spiced (vanilla) background.

    Pol Roger's Vintage Brut 1995 is already a Champagne more suited to ‘bon viveurs' (for gathering after the hunt, Sunday meals with friends and family, delicious light suppers and after theater dinners) than for consumption as an aperitif, with ideal maturity to appeal to hosts' with a view to entertaining or to serve with dishes of character.
