On the heels of the royal wedding it’s no wonder Pol Roger is on our mind this Mother’s Day. The royals and those at Pol Roger kept this royal wedding reception sip secret until the very last moment. This Sunday the holiday ritual of breakfast in bed can be made even better by adding a little of this bubbly to mom’s breakfast tray.
It’s not often that moms get permission to have a drink before getting out of bed, so go ahead and pamper your princess with a long lean flute of bubbles. One sip and you’ll see why this Champagne was chosen for the royal wedding. It pours up a beautiful gilded sparkling wine with rich notes of toast and bright fresh fruits, all intertwined for a complex aroma that is fun to sniff, and a mouthful of vibrant bubbles that dance across your tongue.
Pol Roger, Extra Cuvee de Reserve Champagne, $35 (375 ml)
