2004 Pol Roger "Extra Cuvee de Reserve" Brut Champagne

SKU #1137109 94 points Wine & Spirits

 A discreet 2004, this combines the structural power of pinot noir from the Montagne de Reims (60 percent of the blend) with the elegance of chardonnay grown in the Côte des Blancs. Completely knit into the wine’s toned musculature, those elements create a sensation of balletic power and grace. The flavors, a pale essence of floral cream, tangy lemon and spice, show themselves with clarity and purity, lovely to drink now and balanced for the long haul.  (12/2014)

94 points Wine Enthusiast

 The rich Pol Roger style is contrasted here with the natural crisp minerality of a Blanc de Blancs. That gives a great tension, with the tight texture just waiting to round out as the wine ages further. Because it is still a young wine, fresh and just setting out. You can drink it now, but much better to wait until 2017.  (12/2014)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Vivid yellow. Ripe, mineral-accented orchard fruits and buttered toast on the deeply scented nose, with a sexy floral nuance in the background. On the palate, intense pear and tangerine flavors expand and gain spiciness with air. At once rich and lively, this Champagne finishes with excellent precision and lingering mineral and floral notes.  (12/2014)

93 points Wine Spectator

 A crowd-pleaser, with overall harmony and elegance, this is hard to stop sipping, showing lively acidity and a fine, creamy mousse that carries flavors of black cherry and berry, pastry cream, honey and candied ginger. Presents a fresh, chalk-tinged finish. Drink now through 2027. 300 cases imported.  (12/2014)

Sub-Region:

Champagne

- The French region of Champagne (comprised of the towns of Rheims, Epernay, and Ay) was the first region in the world to make sparkling wine in any quantity. Today, the name of the region is synonymous with the finest of all sparkling wines, and winemaking traditions of Champagne have become role models for sparkling wine producers, worldwide. Surprisingly, the region of Champagne is now responsible for only one bottle in 12 of all sparkling wine produced. Styles of champagne range from the basic brut (often blends of several vintages), single vintage champagnes, and rose. View our bestselling Champagne.
