Cellar/Tasting Notes
A favorite of many, the Brut Blanc de Blanc is one of the finest 100% Chardonnay Champagnes produced. This sparkling gem is only released in the finest of vintages.

This 100% Chardonnay is sourced exclusively from vineyards Grand Cru vineyards of Cramant, Les Mesnil, Oger, Avize and Oiry in the Cote des Blancs. The unblended wines are aged entirely in stainless steel to retain their focused, pure character, which is followed by 7 years of bottle aging in the Pol Roger cellars prior to release.
Wine Enthusiast (WE): 95
"This is a thouroughbred, elegant sparkler. With its delicate acidity, apple and grapefruit flavors, and tense, steely texture, it is an extremely well-blanced wine. Although it is ready to drink now, it could certainly age in bottle for many years."
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (RP): 94
"White flowers, lemon, slate and chamomile are some of the notes that burst from the glass in Pol Roger's 2002 Brut Blanc de Blancs Extra Cuvee de Reserve. A bright, tightly coiled wine, the 2002 comes across as quite fresh and vibrant, especially within the context of the year. Sweet floral and minty notes run through the precise, crystalline finish. Although the 2002 is absolutely delicious today, am I intrigued to see how it might age. It is utterly brilliant today."
Stephen Tanzer (ST): 95
"Pale gold. Intense, mineral-dominated aromas of candied citrus fruits, pear, anise, smoky lees and chamomile, plus a sexy floral nuance and a hint of sweet butter. Palate-staining orchard and citrus fruit flavors show outstanding depth and energy, picking up chalky mineral and spice notes with air. Strikingly concentrated and precise wine with strong finishing punch and noteworthy persistence. This concentrated, deftly balanced Champagne is built for a long, graceful evolution."
Wine Spectator (WS): 93
"Firm, with a toasty base mixing with flavors of quince paste, pastry, dried apricot, raw almond and a hint of lemon curd. There's a clean -cut note of minerally salinity throughout, accompanied by a fine bead and a lingering finish."
