  • Goedhuis, June 2015

    Pol Roger's 2008 Brut Blanc de Blancs is made from Chardonnay selected exclusively from the Grands Crus of Côte des Blancs: Oiry, Chouilly, Cramant, Avize and Oger. It has been produced in limited quantities and aged for 7 years before its release. This is certainly very youthful, however don't be fooled into thinking it is not ready yet. It has just entered its drinking window; already delicious with a long life ahead of it. The pale lemon-gold hue belies this champagne's tremendous intensity and down-right deliciousness. On the nose it has a classic Blanc de Blancs aroma of toasted brioche, burnt lemon and crisp Braeburn apple, cut through with a hint of salinity. The palate is rich and concentrated, with a moreish crisp lemon sherbet and fresh quince tang. This is seriously well balanced with the lively acidity carrying through to the stunningly long finish.

  • Antonio Galloni, August 2016, Score: 92

    Pol Roger's 2008 Blanc de Blancs is a very pretty, expressive Champagne to drink now and over the next handful of years. White orchard fruit, sage, pastry and candied lemon peel open up nicely in the glass. This is an especially creamy, voluptuous 2008, although the acidity of the vintage comes through nicely on the back end. Drink 2016-2023

  • Wine Advocate, March 2016, Score: 95

    Great elegance and finesse already on the perfectly brilliant and aromatic nose shows Pol Roger's 2008 Blanc de Blancs Brut, displaying white and stewed apples with fine citrus flavors and discreet chalky aromas. The palate is dense and citric, as if limes and lemons are squeezed on a chalky rock. The purity, power and intensity is as remarkable, as is the finesse and persistence of the bubbles, the mousse on the palate and the long, persistent finish. Dosed with seven grams per liter, this extraordinary Blanc de Blanc Brut tastes drier than the Réserve Brut, but reveals a perfect ripeness of yellow fruits. The finish is lovely aromatic and intense, but also clear, fresh, firm and absolutely stimulating. This is a great Blanc de Blancs from the Grand Cru villages of Oiry, Chouilly, Cramant, Avize and Oger. Drink 2016-2024

  • Jancis Robinson, March 2016, Score: 17.5

    Much richer than the average Blanc de Blancs but with an excellent line of freshness, especially notable on the finish. Far from austere with a strong lemon-syllabub character. Delightful already. Thoroughly satisfying. Drink 2015-2020

Established in 1849, Champagne Pol Roger remains family-owned and proudly independent to this day. The history and spirit of the company mirrors that of the family who bear the same name: a respect for nature, a devotion to quality and a certain joie de vivre. As one of the smaller houses, Champagne Pol Roger owns 87 hectares of vineyards on prime sites in the Vallée d'Epernay and the Côte des Blancs, drawing the remainder of their supplies fromindividual growers, many of whom have supplied Pol Roger for generations. Its cellars, extending to 7 km, lie on three levels in the chalk below the streets of Epernay and are among the deepest and coolest cellars in the region: contributing to the slow maturation and creation of fine, persistent bubbles which are the hallmark of all Pol Roger champagnes.Read less

Region

Champagne

Champagne, the world's greatest sparkling wine, needs little introduction - with imitations produced in virtually every country capable of growing grapes, including such unlikely candidates as India and China. The Champagne region, to the north of Paris, has the most northerly vineyards in France, with vines grown on slopes with a southerly exposure to maximise sunlight. The soil is chalky, providing an excellent balance of drainage and water retention. The key to the wine is in the cellar - the bubbles result from a second fermentation in the bottle and the rich toasty flavours in great Champagne come from extended bottle ageing on the yeasty lees. Until the eighteenth century, the wines produced in the Champagne area were light acidic white wines, with no hint of sparkle. However glass and closure technology developed at that time and it was not long before Dom Perignon, a Benedictine monk at the Abbey of Hautvilliers, started experimenting with blends and produced the first recognisable champagne. In a world accustomed to still wines, the advent of champagne was almost a flop. It was saved when it became fashionable at the French court as a result of Louis XV's mistress Madame de Pompadour commenting "Champagne is the only wine that lets a woman remain beautiful after she has drunk it." And the rest is history, with famous (or infamous) champagne lovers including Casanova, Dumas, Wagner, Winston Churchill, James Bond and Coco Chanel.
