2008 Pol Roger Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne

SKU #1235523 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Great elegance and finesse already on the perfectly brilliant and aromatic nose shows Pol Roger's 2008 Blanc de Blancs Brut, displaying white and stewed apples with fine citrus flavors and discreet chalky aromas. The palate is dense and citric, as if limes and lemons are squeezed on a chalky rock. The purity, power and intensity is as remarkable, as is the finesse and persistence of the bubbles, the mousse on the palate and the long, persistent finish. Dosed with seven grams per liter, this extraordinary Blanc de Blanc Brut tastes drier than the Réserve Brut, but reveals a perfect ripeness of yellow fruits. The finish is lovely aromatic and intense, but also clear, fresh, firm and absolutely stimulating. This is a great Blanc de Blancs from the Grand Cru villages of Oiry, Chouilly, Cramant, Avize and Oger. (SR) Inner quote mark (3/2016)

94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Ripe, pure and attractive chardonnay delivers a nose scented with peaches, lemons, cream, sweet pastry and subtly nutty notes. This is holding very fresh and still primary thanks to the stunning 2008 vintage. The palate's packed with flavor and a really excellent depth of white peach and lemon curd character. The acidity rules the finish and holds it long. Inner quote mark (10/2016)

94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Crisply fresh, this full-bodied wine has citrus fruitiness that is followed by hints of toast and honey that are just developing. Well balanced, it’s very textured while also fruity, and will develop well in bottle. Drink from 2017 for the more mature flavors to bring their own character to the wine. (RV) Inner quote mark (12/2015)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A mouthwatering Champagne, featuring a lively, lacy mousse and well-meshed flavors of baked peach, lemon curd and slivered almond. Shows minerally accents of chalk and brine, with a firm, focused finish. (AN) Inner quote mark (11/2016)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Pol Roger's 2008 Blanc de Blancs is a very pretty, expressive Champagne to drink now and over the next handful of years. White orchard fruit, sage, pastry and candied lemon peel open up nicely in the glass. This is an especially creamy, voluptuous 2008, although the acidity of the vintage comes through nicely on the back end. (AG) Inner quote mark (8/2016)

The 2008 Pol Roger Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne comes from a vintage that needs little introduction. I am far from alone in calling it the best in a generation, critics and collectors alike cannot heap enough praise on this magical harvest. The weather was very similar to 1996, with a cold east wind keeping the acidity high in the grapes while plenty of good sunshine ripened them fully. This wine has both the pure, aromatic white fruit of the best Chardonnay in Champagne and the killer focus, belemnita chalk and laser like acidity that the vintage is famous for. For me, this is a perfect candidate to lay down for children born in this year.
Drink from 2019 to 2058
