Professional Reviews For This Wine

Richard Juhlin | Rating: 92

Probably one of the most predictable and ingratiatingly "Pol Rogerish" champagnes to have been made. With that I wish to say that the craftsmanship is superior and the result classical. Seldom has it been so easy to hit on the firm in a blind winetasting. Stylish breadiness, majestic fruitiness, magical mousse and an undertone of cellar mushrooms in a terrifically successful way.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90(+?)

($82) Pale gold color, with a strong mousse. Youthful, tangy aromas of green apple and Anjou pear, with notes of oyster shell and fresh butter. Has size and weight on the palate, but the flavors are tightly wound and withdrawn right now. With air, tangy citrus and bright apple notes emerge but this is awfully young. Fresh and firm on the finish, with a brisk, lingering lemon-lime note.

This seems to have unwound now. Not bone dry but very creamy, complete and satisfying.

About This Producer

Defined by distinction and elegance, Pol Roger is considered the 'gentlemen's' champagne. Favored by Winston Churchill and the British monarchy, the Pol Roger brand is dedicated to the reflection of refinement, class, and an exclusive lifestyle. Created to display the unique union of family spirit and vineyard character, Pol Roger is a product of generations of knowledge dedicated to both vineyard practices and winemaking skill. The winery and cellars are located on the celebrated and noble Avenue de Champagne in the town of Eperney.

Wine Varietal: Champagne Blend

Three major varieties are used in a Champagne Blend: Chardonnay, which provides a smooth, creamy texture and Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, which provide depth and backbone. Most Champagne is non-vintage (NV), produced with grapes from several different vintages. Vintage Champagnes are made in exceptional years and must contain 80% grapes from that year. Champagne, France is the only region permitted to put "Champagne" on the label.

Blanc de Blancs: Meaning "white of white," blanc de blancs Champagne is 100% Chardonnay.

Blanc de Noirs: Meaning "white of red," is 100% Pinot Noir or a Pinot Noir/Pinot Meunier blend.

Rose Champagne: A small amount of still red wine is added during the blending process, creating a rose hue.
