Pol Roger 2015 in magnum shows excellent purity and refinement on the nose, with rich autolytic complexities, toasted bread and pastry notes married with red fruits and a hint of spice. The palate shows excellent depth of fruit but also a very firm, taut acidity to complement the richness. Long and persistent on the finish, with very well integrated dosage and balance. Bottled in magnum, this is built for the long haul and the ultimate treat for a special occasion.
Pol Roger 2015 | Magnum
“Very powerful, emphatic nose that suggests the riches to come. Fine mousse. Clean as a whistle. A hint of crème pâtissière with a very crisp, long finish. Super-accessible already – though not for the zero-dosage brigade.” – 17 Pts, Jancis Robinson MW, Jancisrobinson.com
“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.” – 94 Pts, William Kelley, Robertparker.com
