"This off-dry Champagne is very much in the house style, rich with layers of mature fruits. A ripe, full wine, it offers creamed apples and white peaches that are delicious now."

"... the latest release of Pol Roger's NV Demi Sec Rich is showing beautifully, offering up aromas of honeycomb, ripe pears. brioche. frangipane and candied peel. Medium to full-bodied. fleshy and enveloping, it's elegantly textural. with racy acids, nicely integrated sugar and a precise finish. This works very well with certain desserts—think fruit tarts made with flaky pate sucree—and will pick up additional complexity, making it even more versatile at the table, with bottle age."
Vinous Reverie Notes
Winery: Launched in 2001, this cuvee does not only accompany desserts but it will rejoice the most demanding connoisseur's sweet tooth. Half-way between sec and demi-sec (dry and semi-dry), the cuvee Rich is distinguished by its perfect harmony due to a fine balance between sugar and natural acidity. The Cuvee is the result of the harmonious blend, in equal proportions, of the three Champagne grape varieties: pinot noir, pinot meunier and Chardonnay from 30 different crus. 25% reserve wines are used to produce this cuvee. Pinot Noir (bringing structure, body and power) is mainly produced from some of the best crus of the Montagne de Reims. Pinot Meunier (ensuring freshness, roundness and fruitiness) is issued from several crus form the Vallée de la Marne and from the Epernay area. Chardonnay (adding its aromatic complexity, finesse, elegance and lightness) comes from Epernay and some of the best crus of the Côte des Blancs. Cuvee Rich is kept in the cellar for a minimum of 4 years. Following disgorging, it is topped up by a dosage of 34g/l to enhance its sweet flavor.
