Pol Roger has an unrivalled reputation for its Vintage Champagnes; produced only in the best years and from the best vineyards. This pedigree is evident in the 2004 Vintage, which has earned its place in an historic line of champagnes.
To mark the release of the 2004 Vintage, Pol Roger teamed up with Jaguar in order to deliver the first bottles of the newly released cuvée to their top customers in fitting style. Two Jaguar F-Type Convertibles wound their way through the busy streets of London ensuring the bottles’ safe delivery. Jaguar, as fellow Royal Warrant Holders, is a brand which shares many characteristics with Pol Roger and it was thus a marriage of elegance, style and unfaltering excellence.
The 2004 Brut Vintage from Champagne Pol Roger is made from the traditional house vintage blend of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay from 20 Grands and Premiers crus vineyards in the “Montagne de Reims” and the “Côte des Blancs”. Produced only in limited quantities the Brut Vintage 2004 has been aged for 8 years in our cellars before being disgorged and released onto the market.
The wine displays a very attractive pale straw colour. The nose is mineral and elegant with complex aromas of white flowers, quince and subtle brioche overtones. On the palate the wine is intense yet retains a sense of delicacy with balanced notes of stone fruit, acacia honey and citrus underpinned by a fine thread of acidity. Excellent freshness and persistence, with ample concentration and richness to develop over the next 3-7 years.
Commenting on the latest release, James Simpson MW, Sales and Marketing Director of Pol Roger Ltd said:
This is a pure delight of a Champagne to be savoured by itself or as an aperitif. The much acclaimed 2002 Vintage was a daunting wine to follow, however the 2004 acquits itself admirably; delicious now and will continue to improve over the next decade.
Champagne Pol Roger has been producing exceptional champagne for over 160 years. To this day the house remains small, family-owned, fiercely independent and unrivalled in its reputation for quality. Indeed, it is this quality which brought about Sir Winston Churchill’s lifelong attachment to Pol Roger, who famously insisted “In defeat I need it, in victory I deserve it”.
