NV Pol Roger (Champagne)

This might be one of the best bargains in wine. It was voted the best Champagne in Wine Enthusiast for 2005 AND it can be bought at Garnet Wine on 68th and Lexington for $25 where it retails for $40 and sells for that price elsewhere.

The Champagne itself is light pale in color with small, tight bubbles (always a good sign). It has a lovely yeasty aroma but isn’t overly “bready.” (I’m not sure how else to put that.) On the palate, it’s crisp and zesty with a bit of citrus. Overall, it’s a very pleasant wine and a great value.
