Made exclusively with Chardonnay specially selected from the Côte des Blancs' Grands Crus, Pol Roger's 2013 vintage Blanc de Blancs spent six years maturing before making its way for us all to enjoy. With a buttery, fruity, subtly floral flavour profile, this should make for a fantastic aperitif.
Wine Advocate 93 pts:
Pol Roger's newly released 2013 Brut Blanc de Blancs is very appealing, unwinding in the glass with scents of crisp orchard fruit, citrus zest, sourdough bread, pastry cream and almonds. Medium to full-bodied, taut and incisive, it's more chiseled than the richer, more concentrated 2012, with racy acids and a gently reductive edge, concluding with chalky grip. This is a real classic in style and should develop beautifully with age on cork.
James Suckling 94 pts:
This is really delicious and soft with ultra-fine bubbles and a creamy texture. The flavors are subtle with cooked apple, pear and pie crust. Medium-bodied. Fresh and delicious. So subtle.
Wine Spectator 93 pts:
This expressive blanc de blancs indulges the palate with its creamy, lightly plush texture and bright and juicy acidity, a lovely canvas for aromas and flavors of ripe pineapple and apricot fruit, elderflower, lemon curd and salted almond. Drink now through 2030.
