Description & Technical Information
-
Pol Roger was just nineteen when he founded his estate in 1849. Still a family-run enterprise, fifth generation Hubert de Billy is one of the descendants who manage the House today. With 89-hectares of vineyards supplying half of their grape requirements and illustrious premises containing immaculate facilities including pristinely polished stainless-steel tanks. Today they own 92 hectares of vineyards and its cellars in Epernay, just off the Avenue de Champagne run for 7.5 kms, 34 metres below the ground at a constant 9 Celsius.

Remarkably, a small team of less than ten complete everything in the cellar by hand and Pol Roger boast four of the region's remaining fifteen riddlers, who impressively turn over 60,000 bottles a day. Indeed, it is this style and their respect for tradition that initiated Sir Winston Churchill's lifelong attachment to Pol Roger, who famously insisted: "In defeat I need it, in victory I deserve it." Today, their prestige cuvée is named in honour of the great man.

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 eight years in the cellars before disgorgment and release.

Weather in 2013: Winter was cold with little sunshine; it was marked by frequent frosts and several incidences of nowfall. The onset of springlike weather was delayed, and the month of May saw a return of unseasonably low temperatures and high rainfall. June saw a return of normal temperatures. July and August were hot, sunny and dry. A spell of rain at the beginning of September allowed the grapes to swell. Thankfully drier weather encouraged full maturation of the vines, albeit a fortnight late compared to the average of the last ten years. Harvesting started on 24th September and lasted until 9th October.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: 100% Grand & Premier Cru - Montagne de Reims & Côte des Blancs.

Ageing: 7 years on the lees
Disgorgement: April 2020
Dosage: 7.5 g/l
Alcohol: 12.5%
Drink: Now to 2030

Tasting Note: The Brut Vintage 2013 is tightly knit on the nose with notes of lemon peel, grapefruit and white flowers. Taut palate, with a bracing backbone of acidity, which slowly opens to a broad, rich mouthfeel. Incredibly well balanced and will certainly be ranked among some of the great vintages of the 2010s

Expert Reviews
93/100
Antonio Galloni
“The 2013 Vintage is a rich, effusive wine that beautifully captures the personality of the year in which ripeness and acids are both elevated. Pastry, orchard fruit, citrus peel, spice and dried flowers build in an extroverted, racy Champagne that is an absolute delight. Time in the glass brings out a feeling of weightlessness and translucence that is beguiling. As for the obvious next question….yes, I expect the Churchill will be superb.”

Essi Avellan MW
“Medium-deep lemon color. The pronounced nose is still reserved and primary but comes with delicious Pinot Noir fruit. Cranberries, wild strawberries, marshmallow and red apple. Fine intensity and mouthwatering succulence to the palate. Very young still but all pieces at place waiting for further expression. Richly flavored, perfectly clean and long with a sweet, fruity finish.”
16.5/20
Jancis Robinson MW
“Quite a rich nose with come-on appeal – though probably not to a grower-champagne devotee! Firm cooking-apple flavour and apple-skin texture on the palate. Much lighter and more frivolous than the 2012. Just a little light, especially on the finish.”
94/100
William Kelley
“A beautifully chiseled, incisive wine that will appeal immensely to purists. Unwinding in the glass with scents of citrus zest, white flowers, crushed chalk and hints of fresh sourdoughs, it's medium to full-bodied, racy and precise, with a nicely concentrated and tightly wound core, tangy acids and an elegant pinpoint mousse. After the rich, muscular 2012 vintage, the 2013 represents quite a contrast; I'm not sure we'll see its stylistic like again for some time, so readers with classically inclined palates will want to stock up—advice I'll be following myself.”

    To celebrate the release of Pol Roger Brut Vintage 2008, we put it to the test in a blind vertical tasting of the last four vintages of Pol: 2002, 2004, 2006 and 2008. We also threw in the non-vintage for good measure.
