94 pts. : December 1, 2005

One of the great nonvintage Champagnes, this is a wine with considerable bottle age, full of toasty flavors. With its gooseberry and apple fruit flavors, it is still fresh, but its great character comes from its supreme elegance.

92 pts. : December 1, 2001

A beautiful wine, with fine mousse and a pale straw color. Smoky, biscuity aromas are followed by a wonderfully structured, elegant palate, with ripe fruit alongside freshness and a fine, mature richness.

92 pts. : November 30, 1994

An appealing mushroom aroma is the opening note for this smooth, harmonious wine that has enough personality to be a vintage Champagne. It has plenty of body, a flavor dominated by walnuts, a creamy texture and a smooth, buttery finish.

92 pts. : December 1, 2004

Pol Roger has hit the bull’s eye with this year’s release, which boasts smoky, toasty, spicy aromas and rich, mouthfilling flavors of red berries, citrus and minerals. Creamy and mouthfilling, with a long, luscious finish.

92 pts.: 3rd Mar 2016

Straw yellow and with a golden hue in color, the Pol Roger NV Réserve Brut displays a brilliant, perfectly ripe but also fresh, highly elegant and refined fruit aroma on the nose; think of cooked pip fruits like pears and apples, but also quince-confiture and yellow stone fruits, such as apricots and peaches intermixed with vanilla, brioche (pain aux raisins), some nutty flavors and also some white floral notes. On the palate, this medium-bodied Brut is as round (if not pretty sweet) and fruit-driven as it is delicate, pure and very elegant. The mousse is deliciously fine and leads this charming and perfectly balanced fizz to a long, aromatic, stunningly dry and slightly mineral, impressively long finish. This is extremely well done Champagne from equal parts of Pinot Noir, Meunier and Chardonnay sourced in 30 different crus. This Réserve includes 25% of reserve wines and was dosed with nine grams per liter.

92 pts.: Oct 31, 2016

An elegant Champagne, with a smoky, minerally underpinning and subtle flavors of poached pear, toast, candied lemon zest and ginger riding the finely detailed bead. Harmonious, and hard to stop sipping. Drink now through 2020. 10,000 cases imported.

91 pts. : Nov/Dec 2006

Floral and toasty aromas with a creamy mouthfeel that leads to a well-balanced finish.

91 pts. : December 31, 2011

Rich notes of pear pastry, toasted almond, smoke and honey are well-meshed with and balanced by fresh notes of lemon peel, quince and grated ginger, all knit with the finely tuned acidity and creamy mousse. Drink now through 2017.

91 pts.: 12/1/2015

With some bottle age, this nonvintage wine is beautifully integrated. Crispness accompanies a rounder, riper character, with green plum and lemon flavors cut by sliced apple and acidity. The blend brings together the three Champagne grapes in equal measure and reflects that in its well-balanced aftertaste.


A mix of floral, apple and berry aromas and flavors highlight this firmly structured, elegant bubbly, which is harmonious and vibrant, with a lingering finish. Drink now through 2013.

90 pts.: October 15, 2015

Kumquat, melon and anise notes are layered with toast, smoke and golden raisin flavors in this firm, minerally Champagne, complemented by a fine, creamy mousse. Drink now through 2018. 9,000 cases imported.

90 pts.: November 15, 2014

Fresh and open-knit, this chalky Champagne offers lively notes of green apple and crunchy white peach fruit, spring blossom, biscuit and candied lemon zest. Drink now through 2018.

90 pts.: December 1, 2002

The dry, roasted scents grow bold and broad across the palate. Then it finishes with elegance and refinement, with a grip and lasting savor for food. A terrific non-vintage brut, for blini with crème fraîche and caviar.

90 pts.: 12/1/2016

This is a well-balanced, ripe wine in the producer’s rich house style. A brighter, more mineral crispness and acidity also come through strongly in this bottling. The aftertaste brings together a mineral texture and full yellow and apple fruits. Drink now.

89 pts. : November 30, 2009

A medium-weight bubbly, with good richness as a foil for the apple, bread dough and honey notes. A citrus note emerges on the finish. Drink now through 2012.

89 pts.: Nov/Dec 2005

Medium gold color, with a lively, energetic mousse. Toasty, leesy and loaded with orchard fruits on the nose, which also shows a waxy lanolin note reminiscent of Vouvray. Full and rich in the mouth, with flavors of buttered toast and ripe apple that are nicely supported by solid, harmonious acidity. Broad through the finish and long, with a late note of sweet pear.

89 pts. : October 15, 1999

Champagne of substance. Ripe and generous, with sophisticated toasty aromas and good fruit concentration backed by vibrant acidity and a lingering finish. Drink now through 2001.

89 pts. : October 31, 2004

A melange of toast, graphite, citrus and ginger aromas and flavors mark this dryish, balanced Champagne. Good intensity and length, underscored by a lively structure. Drink now.

88 pts. : December 15, 1997

Bright yellow gold color. Medium-bodied. Highly extracted. Bitter lemon, minerals, smoke. Rich, well-structured wine with bitter lemon flavors through a long, assertive finish. This has an impressive presence on the palate. Quite tight and austere.

88 pts. : October 15, 2002

This is lovely, framing its baking bread, honey and citrus flavors with an elegant, focused presentation. Turns a little crisp on the finish. Drink now.

88 pts.: December 1, 2007

This has mouthwatering flavors of white melon and daikon. It’s a bit reduced at first, with racy acidity for sashimi.

88 pts.: December 31, 2009

Bright white chalk and yellow fruit scents contrast darker tones of root vegetables and earth. This is clean and dry, with minerality that lasts. The acidity makes it a refreshing match for tempura.

87 pts. : December, 2008

The NV Brut Extra Cuvee de Reserve is a pleasing mid-weight effort. The wine shows attractive floral aromas and focused fruit, with excellent poise and balance. The Brut Extra Cuvee de Reserve is equal parts Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier. This is Lot BLLE 1/1, disgorged beginning of 2008. Anticipated maturity: 2008–2010.

87 pts.: Nov/Dec 2002

Apple and toffee on the nose; hints of older juice. Frothy and juicy but on the lean side, with a suggestion of sour apple. Shows a faint dry edge of apple skin and some underlying minerality. Boasts sound acidity and a firm finish, but does not seem up to past releases of this non-vintage brut.

87 pts. : December 15, 2003

Dusty and smoky on the nose, with hints of apple and cinnamon. Quite a yeasty wine, with plenty of spice and herbs accenting standard Champagne flavors. The finish is light and easy, with just enough sweetness to add some charm. Chunky, full and expansive, but also a bit overly toasted and heavy.

86 pts.: December 1, 1995

A finely balanced, very complete non-vintage Brut, this is full-textured, firm and fresh. The aroma hints at floral tones, reminiscent of apple blossoms.

: November 1, 1993

…light yellow color, has a faintly floral perfume, with a nuance of vanilla. It is fruity, with citrus and vanilla, creamy and has a crisp finish.

: January 1, 2010

Delicate but with drive, this is a miasma of flowers, red fruit, and lime. Lovely weight and texture, precise balance and a rich but fresh feel.

: October 1, 2005

Ranked #2 out of 18 non-vintage Champagnes, trouncing the likes of Veuve Clicquot, Pommery, Krug, Heidsieck & Bollinger! Very interesting, with the Chardonnay component much in evidence. Neat, intriguing, very well balanced. Indisputably a fine wine with lovely texture and real complexity. Widely liked.

: December 1, 1994

…light creamy yellow gold, has a gorgeous perfume that is very fresh and spicy, laced with citrus and vanilla. The sensational flavors echoing the aromas, are fresh and creamy, with a long, crisp finish — a superb Champagne and a great cuvée of NV Pol Roger.

: October 1, 2009

One of the last major Champagne houses that’s still family-owned, Pol Roger produces good wines at every level, from its famed Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill to this basic bottling. It’s exactly what brut (i.e., dry) Champagne should be; vividly crisp yet creamy, with complex fruit flavors and a tantalizing, toasty aroma.

: October 1, 2009

Good, full of character and finesse. Has a touch of class.

: December 1, 2008

Year in and year out, this medium-bodied, well-balanced wine from a leading small Champagne house is a perennial value and a particular favorite of mine.
