Editorial Reviews for Pol Roger Champagne Blend Champagne Extra Cuvée de Réserve Brut
Complex on the nose with layers of blanched and raw nuts, white mushroom, grass, pineapple, lime and almond nougat with a hint of flintiness. A little sweet one entry, this is rich and creamy with a lovely lushness to it and early apricot fruit. The acidity pops on the back end, bringing the pineapple and lemon fruit flavors to the fore. The finish is subtle and long, spicy with a tangy minerality. I like this very much. 92pts
This has to be one of the nicest most refreshing NV Champagne's I've had. The particluar bottle drank had been ageing in the sideboard for almost 2 years so it hasn't come straight off the supermarket shelf but the flavour is pretty loud, full of life. Pretty amber in colour, the chardonnay is fairly obvious here (the tropical fruit flavour comes to the front before the biscuit/brioche takes over) and bubbles aplenty. Really nice.
Has everything I usually want in a Champagne - nice amount of sweetness and zest. Perfectly balanced flavours.
Have never been a big champagne drinker except on special occasions. Thought this paired nicely with the oysters we devoured. A little sweet but not overwhelming.
The best soft, and easy flowing champange ever.
always my favorite
Really lets get serious you would have to be a nut to rate this over 2, its just rubbish. Its like most of the snob value champagnes full of acid and bad flavours. I wouldnt pay for this, not even $5 its just not a level I would lower myself to just for the sake of saying look at me. gorgeous flavors I had to laugh when someone wote gorgeous flavors, only if you think dog spit sounds gorgeous.
The "white foil". Really let's get serious. You would have to be a nut to rate this over 3 (I rated this a 3 partly because I liked the white foil). The acidity is a bit too overwhelming. I can't believe the royal wedding chose this exact champagne (as the news said after the wedding). They should really have chosen a nice vintage of Dom Perignon (as the news said before the wedding). Medium gold colour with a very fine bead; relatively firmly structured; flowery, sophisticated toasty aromas with plenty of spice and hints gooseberry and sour green apple (acidity is a bit too overwhelming); just enough sweetness to add some charm and a long and flavourful finish.
External Reviews for Pol Roger Champagne Blend Champagne Extra Cuvée de Réserve Brut
Rich notes of pear pastry, toasted almond, smoke and honey are well-meshed with and balanced by fresh notes of lemon peel, quince and grated ginger, all knit with the finely tuned acidity and creamy mousse. Drink now through 2017.
The NV Brut Extra Cuvée de Réserve is a pleasing mid-weight effort. The wine shows attractive floral aromas and focused fruit, with excellent poise and balance. The Brut Extra Cuvée de Réserve is equal parts Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier. Anticipated maturity: 2008–2010.
A Champagne of substance. Ripe and generous, with sophisticated toasty aromas and good fruit concentration backed by vibrant acidity and a lingering finish. Wine Spectator. A Champagne Blend wine from Champagne in France. N.V. Pol Roger Non Vintage Brut 15000ml
Bright white chalk and yellow fruit scents contrast darker tones of root vegetables and earth. This is clean and dry, with minerality that lasts. The acidity makes it a refreshing match for tempura.
Ranked #2 out of 18 non-vintage Champagnes, trouncing the likes of Veuve Clicquot, Pommery, Krug, Heidsieck & Bollinger! Very interesting, with the Chardonnay component much in evidence. Neat, intriguing, very well balanced. Indisputably a fine wine with lovely texture and real complexity. Widely liked.
