Release of Pol Roger 2004 – a new classic

by Charles Lea

POL ROGER 2004 – A great vintage. OPENING OFFER

2004 Pol

After nine years in their famously deep cellars Pol Roger have at last released their fabulous 2004 vintage.

Unlike some Champagne houses who rattle out the vintages one to the next – Pol have the strength of mind and the integrity to hang on to theirs until they are really sure that it is at the perfect point to release, allowing for early drinking for the impatient, but always with the class and depth needed for longer-term ageing.

Pol Roger’s official launch has only taken place this week and so there are as yet no published tasting notes or scores available from the wine writers. However, suffice to say that we tasted and were hugely impressed.

This is intense and has great impact – but is not overblown at all.  A lovely lick of sparky acidity keeps the elegance and delicacy in place. There is a super balance here between the honeyed brioche notes of baking dough and the brighter zippier citrus and floral overtones. This is immediately a joy to drink – but tucked away for 4-5 years and this will repay the patient.

Dig in, you will not be disappointed.
