2002 Pol Roger Blanc de Blanc
The 2002 Pol Roger Blanc de Blanc, is made from 100% Grand Cru fruit – so you know the standard is always going to be high. This Blanc de Blanc was an excellent example, but still very young tasting with loads of acid – which really masks the true potential of this beautiful Champagne. Those patient enough, say 5-8 years, will truly be rewarded with a memorable experience.
On the nose, whiffs of chalk, green apple and hints of citrus, orangey and lemony biscuit aromas, back up with oyster minerality. There was a nice stream of tiny beads creating that delightful effervescence we all like in quality Champagne. Initially the wine was closed in the mouth, not showing a lot, but it did open up a little more in the glass giving yeasty bread note flavours along with apple, pear and honey finishing with minerality and hazelnuts, and maybe something else I couldn’t quite pinpoint…maybe dark chocolate! The 2002 Pol Roger Blanc de Blanc was beautifully poised, with medium-fullish intensity, a harmonious palate which showed plenty of potential for those who are patient. This Champagne will age gracefully if given the chance.
Sadly, I do not offer this product, as the importer/wholesaler is unable to offer a realistic price whereby I can offer my clients a true value for money price.
