Why We're Buying

Balance, finesse, and a touch of sweetness are on full display in Pol Roger Brut Vintage. The limited-release Champagne requires three years of aging before it can be disgorged. The result is a classic Champagne with a steadily rising price tag.

WINE ENTHUSIAST

Wine Enthusiast

A serious, considered wine with its full, ripe and soft flavors tempered with a complex structure. It will not age as impressively as other Pol Roger vintages, and already the yeast and toast element is creeping in. But the weight of Pinot Noir is there, leaving a powerful, creamy mousse finish.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2000 Brut Extra Cuvee de Reserve is a warm, inviting Champagne that impresses for its soft, textured fruit, open personality and creamy finish. Brioche, toast, light honey and flowers linger on the close. This is a delicious vintage Champagne to drink now and over the next few years. This is Lot L02001710A, disgorged July, 2009. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2018.
