2008 Pol Roger - “A worthy successor to the 2002?”

This week marks the official launch of the 2008 vintage of Pol Roger – one of the most eagerly anticipated recent vintages from this historic Champagne house. When we tasted it we were stunned by its incredible balance and precision. This is undoubtedly a world-class Champagne from a vintage that will go down as one of the all-time greats like 2002 and 1996.

We’re not the only ones who love it though. Jancis Robinson MW has awarded it a well-deserved score of 18 out of 20 and describes it as “really exciting” and “admirably long” while asking “is this a worthy successor to the 2002?”. We certainly think it could be.

This is a must-have for all Champagne lovers.

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? Dink 2017-2030.

An explosive yet focused nose of ripe stone fruits and brioche notes. It has a poised and elegant palate packed with green apple, autolytic notes and a crisp, steely acidity. There is an incredible balance to this Champagne which displays all the hallmarks of a vintage built for the long term. It has a powerful structure and a long, evolving, complex finish
