The 2006 Brut Vintage from Champagne Pol Roger is an attractive deep golden colour with a continuous thread of lingering bubbles. The nose is instantly powerful and complex, revealing the maturity of the wine, developing aromas of quince and apple, combined with richer notes of dried fruits. The palate shows a creamy, voluptuous and well-balanced structure. The long-lasting aftertaste boasts sumptuous almond nuttiness balanced with citrus freshness. The wine has a full-bodied structure, and pleasing maturity, without detracting from the overarching delicacy. The 2006 Brut Vintage from Champagne Pol Roger is made from the traditional house vintage blend of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay from 20 Grands and Premiers crus vineyards in the Montagne de Reims and the Côte des Blancs. Produced only in limited quantities the Brut Vintage 2006 has been aged for 8 years in our cellars before being disgorged and released onto the market.

Wine EnthusiastCellar Selection. It is the balance that stars with this wine. The fruit, acidity and mineral texture are held together in maturing harmony. Still young, the wine is still in the fruity spectrum and yet is very ready to drink now. The acidity and the link between the soft dosage and freshness are all in place. Drink now and until 2026.

Wine AdvocateSourced in 20 Premier and Grand Crus of the Côte de Blancs and the Montagne de Reims, the 2006 Vintage Brut is a cuvée of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay that was aged for nine years in the 33 meters deep cellar in Epernay. The deep golden-colored wine offers a deep and vinous, very clear and elegant nose of sweet cherries, stewed and baked apples, ripe stone fruits, cinnamon, chalk, brioche, sweet paprika, orangeade and dashes of lemon juice. Full-bodied, rich and round on the palate, this is a creamy textured though pure and highly elegant, firmly structured, powerful and persistent Champagne; it has a noble and rested expression, as well as a long, noble finish. This is midnight Champagne for noble jazz clubs with fine piano music, or to be matched with noble cigars.

Wine SpectatorBright and lithe in weight, boasting a silky texture, this finely knit and elegant Champagne offers abundant ripe fruit flavors and notes of toasted raisin bread, candied kumquat and dried apricot. Spice and smoke details echo on the lasting finish. Drink now through 2030. 300 cases imported.
