Justerini & Brooks Tasting note

Pol Roger, Brut Reserve, NV
ABV:
12%
92/100
Sarah Mayo, The Wine Independent

An equal parts blend of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay, Pol Roger Brut Reserve NV 75% of which comes from the 2018 vintage and 25% of reserve wines. This is the House signature cuvée accounting for around 80% of all production. It is beautifully fresh on the nose with delicate notes of apple tart, fresh quince, honey, a light toastiness and a whiff of elderflower. The medium-bodied palate has clean acidity and ripe orchard fruit with a little bit of toast coming through on the finish. A classic champagne style with an eight gram per liter dosage.

Josh Raynolds, Vinous

(lot #591680 on bottle) Medium gold color, with a lively, energetic mousse. Toasty, leesy and loaded with orchard fruits on the nose, which also shows a waxy lanolin note reminiscent of Vouvray. Full and rich in the mouth, with flavors of buttered toast and ripe apple that are nicely supported by solid, harmonious acidity. Broad through the finish and long, with a late note of sweet pear.

Pol Roger

Justerini & Brooks has long been a great supporter of Pol Roger. Going back to the 19th Century records show that we bought a handsome parcel of the 1874, a great vintage that put Pol Roger on the map. The most fascinating episode in their history, though, was in 1914 when Epernay was invaded on the 4th September. The occupation did not last long, however, and as the allies pushed back, Maurice Pol Roger was allowed just enough time to coordinate the harvest, on the 21st September. It was a challenge gathering a picking team but he succeeded and as a result Pol Roger was one of the very few Champagnes made that year.
