Rich with hints of malt bread, golden raisin and honey, but finely balanced by the ample backbone of acidity and chalky texture. Notes of Golden Delicious apple, ground anise and lemon zest chime in and linger on the lengthy, mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2029. 120 cases imported. –AN

The rich Pol Roger style is contrasted here with the natural crisp minerality of a Blanc de Blancs. That gives a great tension, with the tight texture just waiting to round out as the wine ages further. Because it is still a young wine, fresh and just setting out. You can drink it now, but much better to wait until 2017.

The last time I tried the 2004 Pol Roger Blanc de Blancs it was still quite tight and buttoned up behind its girdle of acidity. I decided to let my bottles rest for a few more years in the cellar before investigating, and this first bottle out of that cache is starting to blossom nicely, but is probably still three years out from its true plateau of maturity. The bouquet wafts from the glass in a still youthful and lovely blend of pear, delicious apple, a delicate touch of lemon curd, crème patissière, chalky soil tones and brioche. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, racy and complex, with excellent mineral drive, pinpoint bubbles, fine focus and grip and a long, complex and vibrant finish. This is already very enjoyable to drink today, but should age long and gracefully and deserves a few more years of hibernation before having at it in earnest. (Drink between 2020-2045)

(17/20) Neat nose with a good balance of all ingredients – not excessively tart, not excessively dosed. Not the most dramatic but a solid bet. Quite gentle texture.

Winery

Pol Roger

Pol Roger is one of the oldest and most-distinguished luxury Champagne firms. Based in the heart of Epernay, it was established in 1849 and remains one of the few family-owned, grande-marquee Champagne houses. Five generations have remained loyal to the firm’s essential values of excellence and independence, ensuring that each wine is treated as an impeccable ambassador to their 160 years of history.

Pol Roger has carved out one of the most flattering reputations in the select circle of the leading Champagne brands. A personal favorite of Sir Winston Churchill (who has the firm’s top cuvee named after him), Pol Roger champagne has also been the British Royal Family’s choice over the years.

The house grows more than half its grapes on 89 estate hectares and sources the rest from select growers. Their cellars extend below the Avenue de Champagne for over seven kilometers on two levels. The deeper cellar maintains a lower temperature for the wine to develop finer bubbles.

The Pol Roger portfolio includes a vintage brut, a non-vintage brut, a brut nature, a demi sec, a vintage rose, a blanc de blancs and the Sir Winston Churchill prestige cuvee.
