2015 Vintage Brut, Pol Roger

2015 Vintage Brut, Pol Roger

This 2015 from Pol Roger has a beautifully precise, delicate nose with floral notes taking the lead and orchard notes underneath. It is a classic blend of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay from grand and premier crus sites across the Montagne de Reims and the Côte des Blancs. The palate is fresh and agile, with just a hint of brioche, biscuity richness, which should emerge further with bottle age. Overall it is one of the prettiest, most subtle, and enticing releases from Pol Roger in recent years.

Tasting notes

The 2015 Brut Vintage is a very pretty Champagne to drink now and over the next decade or so. Gentle hints of apricot, spice, dried flowers and baked apple tart lend quite a bit of nuance. There’s gorgeous vinous intensity to the 2015 accompanied by a whole range of citrus, floral and chalk overtones that emerge over time, adding brightness as well as cut. All the elements are so nicely balanced. Disgorged: November 2021. Dosage is 7 grams per liter.

Pol Roger's 2015 Brut Vintage is generous and demonstrative, bursting with aromas of golden orchard fruit, nectarine, warm bread, buttered popcorn and orange oil. Full-bodied, broad and vinous, it's rich and fleshy, with a sweet, layered core of fruit, racy acids and a pretty pinpoint mousse. Stylistically, the 2015 has more in common with the richness and concentration of 2012 than the chiseled raciness of 2013. It's a beautiful bottle in the making.
