2002 Pol Roger "Extra Cuvée de Réserve" Brut Champagne (1.5L) (qty: 3)
The most recent vintage release from Pol Roger is this superb 2002. Notes of apple, almond, citrus and a hint of toast mingle together effortlessly. It can be consumed now, especially with food, but its mixture of maturity and freshness promise to age beautifully for many years to come. *Cellar Selection* (RV)
Pol Roger’s 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. (AG)
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. (JR)
An emphasis on pinot noir over chardonnay (60/40 in the blend) gives this wine a deeper, denser feel than the ’02 Blanc de Blancs. It comes from 20 grand and premier cru vineyards in the Montagne de Reims and Côte des Blancs. There’s a scent of yellow roses leading into flavors of peach pit and limestone, minerally in the middle and then softer and pleasantly sweet in the end. Approachable now, this will continue to develop with bottle age.
