92 POINTS | Wine Spectator 'Enough personality to be a vintage Champagne.'
Powerful and aristocratic Champagne from one of the few Grand Marque houses still under family control. 'Pol" was famously Winston Churchill's favourite tipple and more recently was served at the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. All class.
The winery writes "Pol Roger Brut Réserve diplays a beautiful golden straw coloured hue, as well as abundant and fine bubbles. With a powerful and attractive nose, it first delivers aromas of fruit (pear, mango ...) and then releases light flavours of honeysuckle and white jasmine, lingering on vanilla and brioche notes. Behind a frank and dynamic attack, the wine encompasses a nice harmony and a pleasant freshness, whilst preserving some structure. On the palate, flavours of cooked fruit (quince jelly, apricot jam) happily mingle with fragrances of beeswax and acacia honey. The long-lasting aromas, composed of both fruity (candied orange peel, tangerine...) and spicy notes (cardamom, anis) is outstanding."
