Pol Roger Brut Vintage
Description & Technical Information
-
Pol Roger Brut Vintage is produced in limited quantities using the traditional House blend from twenty Grand and Premier Cru vineyards in the Montagne de Reims and the Côte des Blancs. Second fermentation takes place in the coolest Pol Roger cellars, thirty-three metres below ground level at temperatures of just 9°C, some 2-3°C cooler than the cellars of other producers. The cooler cellars slow down bottle fermentation, producing a champagne with finer bubbles, a characteristic for which these small production releases of Pol Roger are known for. The final blend is aged for nine years in the cellars before disgorgment and release.

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.

News Article: Pol Roger Brut Vintage 2002 placed fourth in our comprehensive Prestige Cuvées from 2002 blind tasting in October 2016 with Jancis Robinson MW. Read the full write-up here.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: 100% Grand & Premier Cru
Grape Varieties: 60% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay
Ageing: 9 years on the lees
Dosage: 8 g/l
Drink: Now to 2022

Tasting Note: A pale yellow-gold wine with a fine stream of bubbles. This is a stunningly youthful champagne that, whilst tasting outstanding now, has great potential to develop. It has a creamy and rich structure on the palate, fully balanced with very poised acidity that leaves a long-lasting finish. A champagne with enormous potential for mid and long-term ageing: this is very special.
