Description & Technical Information
-
Pol Roger's vintage champagnes have an unrivalled reputation: produced only in the best years from the best vineyards of the best villages. With 2002 continuing to be acclaimed as one of the greatest ever vintages, Pol Roger have celebrated this legendary year with the creation of the Pol Roger Vintage 2002 Collection. This Limited Edition release contains two bottles each of Pol Roger Brut Vintage 2002, Pol Roger Blanc de Blancs 2002 and Pol Roger Rosé 2002, all housed in a beautiful oak case. This definitive range of Pol Roger Vintage Champagne is a rare showcase of the remarkable quality of this outstanding vintage. Just 100 cases have been produced.

Weather: The 2002 vintage shaped up magnificently over the spring, with no significant frost and near-perfect flowering. Then followed a summer marked by long, sunny periods interspersed with regular cloudy and rainy spells. The vines were in good health and the dehydration of the grape berries helped them reach new heights of ripeness. Generally considered one of the best harvests in the last twenty years.

Pol Roger Brut Vintage 2002: Following the House’s traditional vintage blend of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay, this remarkable cuvée is drawn from twenty Grand and Premier Cru sites across the Montagne de Reims and Côte des Blancs.

Pol Roger Blanc de Blancs 2002: Describing 2002 as a “vintage characterised by remarkable levels of ripeness and a good level of acidity,” Pol Roger produced their Blanc de Blancs from exclusively Grand Cru sites in the Côte des Blancs.

Pol Roger Rosé 2002: For their vintage rosé, Pol Roger vinify 13% of the Pinot Noir as red wine and add it to the final blend before the second fermentation, in order “to obtain it's delicate colour and subtle nose”.

Pol Roger Vintage 2002 Collection comes presented in a beautifully branded oak case (as shown in the picture on the left). The case contains a commemorative booklet with a Pol Roger family tree, individually hand-signed by Hubert de Billy, fifth generation family member. This dates back to Monsieur Pol Roger who founded the house in 1849 and to this day the House remains small and family-owned.

Antonio Galloni
“Pol Roger Blanc de Blancs 2002 - White flowers, lemon, slate and chamomile are some of the notes that burst from the glass in Pol Rogers 2002 Brut Blanc de Blancs Extra Cuvee de Reserve. A bright, tightly coiled wine, the 2002 comes across as quite fresh and vibrant, especially within the context of the year. Sweet floral and minty notes run through the precise, crystalline finish. Although the 2002 is absolutely delicious today, I am intrigued to see how it might age. It is utterly brilliant today.”

Alison Napjus
“Pol Roger Blanc de Blancs 2002 - Firm, with a toasty base mixing with flavors of quince paste, pastry, dried apricot, raw almond and a hint of lemon curd. There's a clean -cut note of minerally salinity throughout, accompanied by a fine bead and a lingering finish.”
95/100
Stephen Tanzer
“Pol Roger Blanc de Blancs 2002 - Pale gold. Intense, mineral-dominated aromas of candied citrus fruits, pear, anise, smoky lees and chamomile, plus a sexy floral nuance and a hint of sweet butter. Palate-staining orchard and citrus fruit flavors show outstanding depth and energy, picking up chalky mineral and spice notes with air. Strikingly concentrated and precise wine with strong finishing punch and noteworthy persistence. This concentrated, deftly balanced Champagne is built for a long, graceful evolution.”

Alison Napjus
“Pol Roger Brut Vintage 2002 - Exuberant, yet graceful overall, with rich notes of ripe pineapple, guava, honey and baked peach mixing with a minerally undertow and accents of grated ginger, biscuit and fresh quince. Mouthwatering finish.”
93/100
Antonio Galloni
“Pol Roger Brut Vintage 2002 - Pol Rogers 2002 Brut Extra Cuvee de Reserve is rich, creamy and seductive. An expressive, layered wine, the 2002 impresses for its overall harmony and balance. Light floral honey, mint, tangerine, cinnamon and dried pears are all woven together in this gracious, impeccable Champagne. This is a fairly reserved style for the year, but it works.”
93/100
Josh Raynolds
“Pol Roger Brut Vintage 2002 - Light gold. Vibrant, mineral-accented aromas of citrus fruits, quince and white flowers, along with subtle sea salt and iodine nuances and slow-building toastiness. Sappy, penetrating and pure, offering assertive Meyer lemon and pear flavors and complicating notes of anise and ginger. I'd have guessed that there was more chardonnay in here. Finishes with outstanding clarity and thrust, leaving a spicy quality behind.”
92/100
Alison Napjus
“Pol Roger Rosé 2002 - A floral rose, with a smoky undercurrent to subtle flavors of ripe plum, blackberry and black cherry. Mouthwatering acidity and fine texture steer this to the focused finish.”
94/100
Roger Voss
“Pol Roger Rosé 2002 - From the great 2002 vintage, this is a beautiful structured wine, packed with a fine texture of red berries, intense acidity as well as richness. Intense, complex wine that could well age.”
19.5/20
Tom Stevenson
“Pol Roger Rosé 2002 - I had great difficulty tasting this: every time I went to spit it out, I swallowed it! It was so moreish, I couldnt help myself. Exquisite pale peach colour, sublime mousse, tantalising fruit, so yummy yet so classy how on earth do they do that? The 2002 is a ros of extraordinary finesse.”
