The 2000 harvest continued where the 1999 left off: hot, rainy and with little sunshine. The outlook in general was guarded, but good weather returned before harvest, which was ripe and abundant. The wines contained satisfactory levels of alcohol and acidity, with pHs fairly high. The tartaric acid of the must was the lowest since 1970, yet the wines were very good to taste.
The aromas are floral, sweet and fresh, with toasted brioche notes. In the mouth, the texture is at once velvety and dense, with developing flavors of candied yellow fruits, quince and marzipan, with notes of flowers and pepper. There's an overall character of precision and finesse.
Food Match: sushi, salmon, pate, lobster, fish, crab.
"A serious, considered wine with its full, ripe and soft flavors tempered with a complex structure. It will not age as impressively as other Pol Roger vintages, and already the yeast and toast element is creeping in. But the weight of Pinot Noir is there, leaving a powerful, creamy mousse finish."
"Ripe in tone, with a honeyed scent and hints of candied lemon, this wine retains a refreshing fruit character, clean, pute and zesty. There's a bright kiwi note to contrast the chalky minerality, the flavors lasting with finesse. For whole fish roasted in salt."
Wine & Spirits
"Floral and poached pear flavors are supported by fine texture and vibrant acidity, layered with hints of toasted almond, graphite, cream and lemon curd, with a mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2020. 200 cases imported."
"The 2000 Brut Extra Cuvee de Reserve is a warm, inviting Champagne that impresses for its soft, textured fruit, open personality and creamy finish. Brioche, toast, light honey and flowers linger on the close. This is a delicious vintage Champagne to drink now and over the next few years. This is Lot L02001710A, disgorged July, 2009. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2018."
The Wine Advocate
Pol Roger is one of the few remaining family-owned grande marque Champagne houses. Their grande marque status was guaranteed at the turn of the century when about 20 producers banded together to establish exacting quality controls for Champagne. The annual production at Pol Roger - less than 120,000 cases - is found in the best restaurants of France, England, and the USA, and is exported to over 30 countries. 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!".
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...Read More About Champagne
