    May 22, 2020 - (Disgorged in 2012, 100% Chardonnay from Oiry, Chouilly, Cramant, Avize and Oger, dosage 9 gr/l)
    Still a youthful yellow colour with a greenish shimmering that lead way for the lovely maturing nose showing hazelnuts, butter and yellow apples. Fresh citrus acidity at first and then showing rounder notes on the mid before the lovely lime zest bitterness and butter note takes over on the lengthy finish. Wow, what an excellent showing tonight, and still showing so much youthfulness, will this stay fresh forever?

    April 18, 2020 - I enjoyed this Pol Roger last night. It’s in a great spot, probably at peak. I got the first nuances of 'aged' bubbly, to go with great freshness and body. The dosage might be a bit more evident than prior bottles, perhaps that is the norm for mature champagne? At any rate, I liked it a lot and look forward to trying part 2 of it tomorrow... ok, this is even better today, the fruit and dosage are better integrated. Bright, deep, balanced, bubbly you serve to traditionalists. 92-93 pts.

    February 3, 2020 - Wanted a BdB to go with blinis, creme fraiche and caviar and this was a great match. Consistent with past bottles. Cellared since release, perfect cork and fill. Medium yellow. Toasted bread, almond, baked apple nose in just the right proportions for a pleasant complexity without excessive oxidative nature, at least for my palate. Medium body, good balance, flavors follow the nose, medium finish. Drinking well now and should continue to do so for the next few years at least. Excellent.

    November 28, 2019 - Wow. Light golden hue, a fantastic bead. But such cut and precision married to lovely ripe white fruits, some hazelnuts and the slightest hint of toffee. Amazing now but should get better..

    November 17, 2019 - Pol Roger Blanc de Blancs 2002.
    Elegant og fresh.
    Langt mer ungdommelig enn vanlig vintage fra 02 smakingen i september.
    Rund i frukten med nydelig friskhet.
    Særdeles elegant og drikker bra nå, men kan også lagres videre.
    Presis i utgangen med pen mineralitet. 91p
