Pol Roger the founder of Champagne Pol Roger has observed the tradition of not releasing a vintage-dated Champagne unless the climatic conditions permitted the production of grapes of outstanding ripeness. A vintage Champagne must, above all else, be a balanced Champagne and the 2002 is exceptional!
Winemaker Notes

In appearance, it is bright, intensely golden, with hosts of beautiful, very fine bubbles. The nose starts with a bouquet of roses, a stunning sensation of sweetness and freshness, precisely outlined. Then, as it warms up, toasted notes appear, mainly brioche, a combination of delicacy and smoothness. The “highly-developed”, empyreumatic character remains elegant, never ostentatious. A deep, even heady nose, all refinement. In the mouth it is full and fresh: a silky or velvety texture, dense and fine at the same time. The floral notes combined with an exotic pinprick of pepper (wallflower, nasturtium) reveal the consistency of the wine without detracting from its delicacy.

As it unfolds, the mouth develops aromas of candied yellow fruit (fruit jelly) quince and marzipan, which prolong the dominant “hirsute” note with fluidity, with a smooth and sensual touch. The finish is slightly astringent: the minerality and freshness reinforce the beautifully delicate and structured substance of the wine by giving it depth without overpowering it. Precision, beauty, and finesse leave an unforgettable impression.
