Winemaker's Notes

The Pol Roger Brut Rosé 2000 is made from about 50% Pinot Noir, 35% Chardonnay and 15% Vin Rouge de Champagne, sourced from approximately 20 Grand and Premier Cru Vineyards, including Le Mesnil, Oger, Vertus, Grauves, Oiry and Chouilly, and Cumières, Champillon, Ay, Hautvillers, Mareuil, Chigny, Rilly, Bouzy and Vinay, for Chardonnay and Pinot Noir respectively.

Leading up to harvest, good weather returned, helping to ripen an abundant harvest, despite some leaves having been affected by mildew. In the second week of September, huge, ripe bunches were harvested with very good health. The Chardonnay grapes showed seductive, fresh and well-balanced characters, while Pinot Noir showed powerful, full and structured. Fruit from the Côtes des Bar parcels was ripe, expressive and balanced delicacy and structure. Pinot Meunier was generous, unctuous, round and very fine. The 2000 champagnes show good volume and roundness in the mouth. While the 2000 wines are maturing relatively quickly, this vintage will be one for the long term.

Tasting Notes: An intense golden pink color, the powerful, concentrated nose shows ripe wild strawberry and raspberry. The wine has a lively, refreshing and light character on the palate, with dried apricot and mint notes. A lifting acidity precedes a long finish, which bodes well for the wine's aging ability and its facility to pair with food.

Food Match: sushi, Soft cheeses, scallops, pate, oysters, lobster, Fresh Fruit, fowl, foie gras, crab, Asian cuisine.

Critical Acclaim

"Elegance defines this Champagne, whose berry flavors and silky texture combine for a harmonious whole. Citrus and mineral round out the flavor spectrum, and this glides to a long, chalky finish. Best from 2010 through 2022. 400 cases imported."
91 Points

"Bright pink with a frothy mousse. Raspberry and strawberry aromas are complicated by dried flowers and blood orange. Juicy red fruit flavors are sharpened by dusty minerals and lifted by gentle acidity. Becomes chewier with air and finishes with good grip and thrust. Plenty rich, with the power to handle full-flavored foods and the dryness and cut to work as an aperitif."

Pol Roger also was the Champagne of choice of British dignitary Sir Winston Churchill, who once said of Champagne, "...In victory I deserve it, and in defeat I need it!".

Learn About Champagne

Champagne is both a region and a method. The wines come from the northernmost vineyards in France and the name conjures an image like no other can. An 18th Century Benedictine monk named Dom Perignon is said to be the first to blend both varietals and vintages, making good wines not only great, but also special and unique to their winemaker. Today, nearly 75% of Champagne...

Learn About Rosé

Pink Bubbles Some Champagne and sparkling wine is pink. It's more rare, and more robust, and sometimes more expensive. But it's one of those wines that is just deliciously appealing. The pink color in a rose sparkler comes from the skins - which means that the wine must include at least one of the red grapes of the traditional method - Pinot Noir or Pinot...
