Pol Roger 2012 Brut Rose Wine 750ml
Pale raspberry with fine copper glints. The nose is opulent and well structured, with red berries and a rich spicy depth. The palate taught, with a refreshing backbone of acidity, that rounds out to a sensation of bursting redcurrants. A lively finish that is impressively long. Savor now for freshness or keep for many years to come for a richer and more opulent wine.
The Brut Rosé Vintage 2012 is the ideal choice to accompany fish such as grilled salmon or even sushi. It also marries perfectly with fruit tarts and other fruit desserts; try pairing with a forced rhubarb fool, the sharpness of the fruit complementing the elegant structure of the wine.
Blend: 60% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay

A rich yet very dry rosé with cherry, strawberry and strawberry tart. Hints of citrus. Full-bodied and very creamy with fine bubbles and a long, persistent finish. Focused finish, giving this form and tightness. Drink or hold.
RP 94 Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
Pol Roger’s 2012 Brut Rosé continues to show very nicely, wafting from the glass with aromas of plums, red berries, brioche, blood orange and smoke. Full-bodied, vinous and enveloping, it’s a textural, elegantly muscular wine with fine concentration and a fleshy core of fruit, complemented by a pretty pinpoint mousse. This is a charming, gastronomic rosé that’s beginning to drink with style.
WS 94 Wine Spectator
Ripe cherry, pomegranate and blood orange sorbet flavors are well-knit to sleek, lightly mouthwatering acidity in this elegant rosé Champagne, with a subtle plushness to the fine mousse. Long and minerally on the finish, echoing more fruit and spice details. Drink now through 2029.
WE 93 Wine Enthusiast
With this rosé, the vintage is showing maturity and the toastiness of this rich wine is now just at the right point. Fruit and acidity are in the background, lending a crisp edge to a wine that is delicious now.

This rosé from Pol Roger is absolutely brilliant. The bouquet is appealing and fragrant, with energetic freshness and stunning strawberry, raspberry and spice notes. The palate possesses a vinous texture and well-grained tannins. Perfect for food.
V 92 Vinous
The 2012 Brut Rosé is plush and effusive in the glass, with terrific richness and plenty of texture. There is a gorgeous sense of immediacy to the 2012 that makes it absolutely irresistible. Bright red berry fruit, spice and perfumed floral notes resonate with terrific depth. Medium in body and racy, the Rosé has so much to offer in a style that balances energy with richness.
