Pol Roger 2008

 

The 2008 vintage for Champagne is exceptionally good and has been eagerly awaited. According to Richard Juhlin 2008 is “an absolutely gorgeous vintage that has it all. I have a hard time imagining anything other than buying everything you see of this vintage."


Here's what Jancis Robinson says about the 2008 Pol Roger: "Really quite broad and ripe on the nose with mildly floral notes and a hint of putty. Really very dramatic! Even a hint of marzipan. Creamy texture with a little bruised apple acidity. Admirably long. Really exciting. Is this a worthy successor to the 2002?" 18 points, Jancis Robinson, jancisrobinson.com

And this is the winemaker's note: “Excellent purity and refinement on the nose, very focused. Autolytic complexity, toasted bread and pastry, but also red fruits and a hint of spice. The palate shows excellent depth of fruit but also a very firm, taut acidity to complement the richness. Long and persistent finish, very well integrated dosage and built for the long-haul. More refined than the 2002 (and a very different style) was at this stage of its development. Drink 2018 – 2040.” Pol Roger, winemaker’s note. 

Very best wishes,

Mark
