Champagne Pol Roger non-vintage Brut ($29.99)
Clear bright gold, rich color likely signals Pinot in the blend; pinpoint, persistent bubble stream. Appetizing aromas, toasty and fruity, fresh apple butter and a hint of cocoa. Creamy mouthfeel, crisp and long. Delightful Champagne in the full-bodied style, a personal favorite. US Importer: Frederick Wildman and Sons Ltd., NYC. (Dec 20, 2001)
FOOD MATCH: Surprisingly well-matched with a simple omelet stuffed with diced red bell peppers and onions.

Wine notes in 'shelf-hanger' format:
We publish Wine Lovers' Page tasting reports in the familiar "shelf-hanger" size and format, to make it easy for wine merchants or collectors to print them out, clip and post them where this wine is displayed. We do ask, however, that the WineLoversPage.com name, logo and URL be left intact, and that these reports be used with the specific wines rated, not different bottlings or vintages.
Our tasting policy:
All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I accept no free samples from wineries or distributors, purchasing all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
