2009 Pol Roger Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne

SKU #1379436 95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark With fruit from the Côte des Blancs, this is a classic, textured, mineral-driven Chardonnay Champagne. Its bottle age gives a toasty edge to the crisp, lively grapefruit and bitter orange flavors. Well balanced, this impressive wine is still likely to improve with aging. Drink now, but, better, wait until 2020. (RV) Inner quote mark (8/2018)

Outer quote mark Let it breathe a few minutes in the glass and Pol Roger's 2009 Brut Blanc de Blancs becomes truly exciting! Sourced in Oiry, Chouilly, Cramant, Avize and Oger (all grands crus from the Côte des Blancs), the wine opens with an intensely chalky, fresh and concentrated bouquet of white and yellow-fleshed fruits along with floral and spicy seed flavors as well as notes of wet, crushed limestone. Very deep but always pure and fresh. And so chalky! Full-bodied yet straight and fresh, with vibrating minerality and great finesse, this is a super elegant, tightly woven and persistent but weightless Côte des Blancs with a long, fresh and salty finish. This Cuvée was aged for seven years on the lees before being disgorged on May 30th, 2017. Tasted June 2018. (SR) Inner quote mark (6/2018)

Outer quote mark This has an air of ripeness with gently candied praline and grilled ripe peach fruits. The palate delivers lemon pastry and a smooth, custard-like texture. Really supple and fleshy. One to drink early. Inner quote mark (10/2017)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Crisp and minerally, this tightly meshed, linear Champagne layers flavors of mirabelle plum, biscuit, smoke, white cherry and pickled ginger on the lacy mousse. Racy finish. Drink now through 2030. (AN) Inner quote mark (11/2018)

92 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The 2009 Pol Roger Blanc de Blancs is an excellent example of the vintage, with the ripeness of this year giving the wine a forward and succulent character right out of the blocks. The excellent nose jumps from the glass in a blend of pear, apple, orange zest, warm bread, chalky minerality and upper register smokiness. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, complex and quite wide open already, with a lovely core, elegant mousse, bright acids and impressive length and grip on the complex and zesty finish. Most vintages of Pol Roger Blanc de Blancs need several years in the cellar after release to really blossom, but the 2009 is already drinking with great style and generosity. (Drink between 2017-2035) 92+ Inner quote mark (5/2017)

92 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark This is a blend of chardonnay from the grand crus of Oiry, Chouilly, Cramant, Avize and Oger. It developed a broad texture through long aging on the lees, the full ripeness of the fruit coming through in white-cherry notes and a lanolin richness. And yet it still feels clean, a firm presence of limestone acidity lending the wine a classical line. Inner quote mark (12/2018)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Well Pol Roger is never austere but this is one of their richer, more brioche-like wines. Really deep-flavoured but vivacious in terms of its persistent bead. I don't think I would immediately take it for a Blanc de Blancs blind, although I suppose it is more like a rich Chardonnay than anything you are likely to find from an avant garde grower during Champagne Week. Very expressive of this mellow vintage and definitely ready to enjoy. Very easy to drink without food. 17/20 points (JR) Inner quote mark (7/2017)

Open, friendly and full of brioche toast, the 2009 Pol Roger Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne is drinking great right now. It wowed everyone at our tasting last Friday with its creamy texture, round, friendly personality and dry finish. This vintage is a favorite with the growers in Champagne because of how sunny and easy the harvest was for them, and how clean and open knit the wines turned out to be. This should keep very well, but perhaps not for multiple generations like the 2008.
Drink from 2019 to 2036
