Pol Roger Blanc de Blancs eight vintages labels 

>>From Epernay Fabrizio Carrera

From Epernay, we are at Pol Roger maison , one of the few companies that produces a huge quantity of bottles and at the same time its products are considered excellent.
We tasted eight different vintages of Blanc de Blancs. 
It was a great tasting, elegance and savory, long and freshness are the caracteristics of this type of Champagne that in Italy costs about 80 euros.
Here it is the cronical of the tasting. Then you can find other articles of our visit in Champagne.
