2006 Pol Roger Brut Vintage
Cracka Value Rating
The 2006 Brut Vintage from Champagne Pol Roger is an attractive deep golden colour with a continuous thread of lingering bubbles.
The nose is instantly powerful and complex, revealing the maturity of the wine, developing aromas of quince and apple, combined with richer notes of dried fruits
The palate shows a creamy, voluptuous and well-balanced structure. The long-lasting aftertaste boasts sumptuous almond nuttiness balanced with citrus freshness. The wine has a full-bodied structure, and pleasing maturity, without detracting from the overarching delicacy.

2006 Pol Roger Brut Vintage
An express shipment that will be rolled out late in 2012 and on the shelves through 2013, this is a richer Champagne (60% pinot noir/40% chardonnay) that was disgorged late in 2011. It smells of ripe red apple, some handy richness here, light-red pinot noir fruits, and hints of wild strawberry and grilled nuts _ really fresh though. The palate s also quite bold with red apple and guava flavours and some wild strawberry, lovely weight, texture and drive, good balance. Juicy and attractive phenolics build in smooth shape. It could use some more time, in fact, and Poltypically likes its time on cork.2015Good Wine Guide
For the most exquisite of celebrations, Pol vintage is your number. I splashed a magnum after the baptism of our Huon Timothy on Sunday and the room of sixty family and friends was spellbound! This is no wild party fizz, rather a tightly honed champagne of exacting precision and fine-strung tension.
A blend of 60% pinot noir and 40% chardonnay, this has a richness about it that speaks of additional fruit concentration as well as finely layered complexity. The colour's bright gold, while the nose has chirpy red-fruit aromas, some flinty autolysis characters and terrific purity below. The palate has a creamy layer of chardonnay stone fruits and citrus, layered around a core of sturdy, powerful pinot noir. Great shape.The Good Wine Guide 2012
Long loved by the Brits, Pol is doing staggeringly well these days, and this vintage wine is one of the best-value on offer. Richness and classic Poltoasty notes are just dominated by pinot noir's Spice and savoury notes. The palate has rich, toasty appeal, yellow fruit flavours, fresh acid attack and a finely beaded texture; immaculate depth and balance. This is right on the mark.The Penguin Good Australian Wine Guide 2010 2009
The 1999 vintage Pol is a wonderfully forward, luscious and juicy wine. It is busty and succulent and far less linear than many of the nervier, straight- jacketed wines in this section. If you like to be wrapped up in layers of scintillat- ingly hypnotic fruit then this is your baby.
