Pol Roger Brut Vintage 1990 Champagne

More vintages: 2002, 2004, 2006, 2008Champagne's geographical location engenders capricious weather. For this reason, since their foundation in 1849 Pol Roger have observed the tradition of not releasing a vintage-dated champagne unless the climatic conditions permit the production of grapes of outstanding ripeness. A vintage champagne must, above all else, be a balanced champagne. This balance depends on the right blend of healthy grapes, a good potential alcohol and correct acidity. The first criterion for declaring a vintage wine is its capacity to age. Devotees who have the patience to age their champagnes are rewarded with a more complex and richer wine.

The 1990 is blended from 18 Grands and Premiers Crus. The vintage experienced some frost damage early in the year especially during April, however with a superb summer the grapes thrived. Due to the long days and summer sun combined with cool nights, the grapes had excellent alcohol and acidity levels. The crop was the third largest on record and 1990 produced the ripest wines since 1959.

The magnum has allowed the wine to age exceptionally, with the fruits still bright yet intense. The wine is a deep golden colour and the aromas of orchard fruits and hints of spice lead to a palate bursting with fresh acidity and apples that end with a long creamy lingering finish. A full bodied champagne, with plenty more ageing.

Grape Varieties: 60% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay
Dosage: 6-8 g/L

Pol Roger Brut Vintage
Nov 1999
“Bright, lightly leesy aromas of fresh apples, minerals and spices. Fresh, spicy and intensely flavored, but quite austere, almost metallic and not yet demonstrating much personality. But firm, bright and fresh, finishing with good grip. This wine came with an excellent reputation, but I preferred both Pol Roger Rose and Blanc de Chardonnay from this superb vintage.”
