Pol Roger Brut Blanc De Blancs Champagne Chardonnay 2008

$89.99

Great elegance and finesse already on the perfectly brilliant and aromatic nose shows Pol Roger's 2008 Blanc de Blancs Brut, displaying white and stewed apples with fine citrus flavors and discreet chalky aromas. The palate is dense and citric, as if limes and lemons are squeezed on a chalky rock. The purity, power and intensity is as remarkable, as is the finesse and persistence of the bubbles, the mousse on the palate and the long, persistent finish... The finish is lovely aromatic and intense, but also clear, fresh, firm and absolutely stimulating. This is a great Blanc de Blancs... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2008 BdB Pol Roger has apples and lemon, and some Christmas stuffing characteristics too. Very open and inviting. Bringing in the New Year quietly but happily, having spent the latter part of the day hanging art while a stew slowly cooked. Cara is 7+ months along so not really holding her own when it comes to Champagne, or any wine for that matter. Extra glasses for me...

Moved house today. Thankfully one only needs to do it on rare occasions. Unless you are a mover. Those guys worked like demons. A bottle of Pol Roger is an apt way to celebrate. The 2008 BdB is very giving right now. Zest and pears make for an attractive Champagne, though anything would taste great right now in my partially comatosed state.

Expected an understated presence so was taken aback to find the concentration, power and an oxidative style. Conjured images of Krug.
