Pol Roger Brut Vintage 2004 Champagne

More vintages: 1990, 2002, 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 it's capacity to age. Devotees who have the patience to age their champagnes are rewarded with a more complex and richer wine.

In 2004, apart from a few short periods of cold in February and March, mild and dry weather continued until the spring. A wet and cool August retarded the maturation of the grapes but the warmth and sunshine during the first three weeks of September encouraged an exceptional development of the bunches and the grapes were very healthy at the time of the harvest. Produced only in limited quantities using the traditional house blend from 20 Grand and Premier Cru vineyards in the Montagne de Reims and the Côte des Blancs, Brut Vintage 2004 is aged for 8 years in the cellars before being disgorged and released.

A classic Pol Roger vintage, without the theatrics of 2002, the wine displays an attractive pale straw colour. Excellent freshness and persistence on the palate, with notes of acacia honey and citrus underpinned by a fine thread of acidity. The slow-motion aging of Pol Roger's cold cellars in evident in this youthful vintage, with ample concentration and richness to develop over the next 3-7 years.

Grape Varieties: 60% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay

“Deep straw. Pretty nose. Well balanced and well-knit with high-toned floral notes. Quite forceful on the palate. Dry finish. Really needs food. Too dry to sip without it, I’d have thought.”

“A crowd-pleaser, with overall harmony and elegance, this is hard to stop sipping, showing lively acidity and a fine, creamy mousse that carries flavors of black cherry and berry, pastry cream, honey and candied gin- ger. Presents a fresh, chalk-tinged finish. Drink now through 2027.”

“Vivid yellow. Ripe, mineral-accented orchard fruits and buttered toast on the deeply scented nose, with a sexy floral nuance in the background. On the palate, intense pear and tangerine flavors expand and gain spiciness with air. At once rich and lively, this Champagne finishes with excellent precision and lingering mineral and floral notes.”

“Just approaching maturity, this rich wine is sumptuous and complex. It has intense fruitiness, with apple and grapefruit flavors that are followed by a tight texture as well as the first signs of toastiness. It has plenty of life yet.”

“60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay, sourced from 20 Grand & Premier Crus from the Montagne de Reims and Côte des Blancs. The must underwent two débourbages (settlings), one at the press house and the second, a cold-settling, in stainless steel tanks at 6 °C over a 24 hour period. Slowly cool-fermented at less than 18°C, with each variety and each village kept separate until final blending. Full malo and then 2ndary ferment took place at 9 °C in the deepest Pol Roger cellars (33 metres below street level) where the wine was kept until being riddled by hand. Winemaker Dominique Petit. Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
Really rich and doughy on the nose, bits of smoke and lemon juice. Great – but not quite as multi-dimensional as I expect from Pol Roger. The nose outplays the palate at the moment.”

“60% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay. Eight years' ageing on lees before disgorgement. Dosage 9 g/l.
Pale gold, fine bead. Rich biscuity nose and finely ripe citrus. Even a hint of gingerbread. Rich and deep and full in the mouth and with delicious cutting-through crispness. Very persistent. Great balance in quite a blockbuster style. Effervescent in every way. Deep and crisp and even.”
