    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2000 harvest continued where the 1999 left off: hot, rainy and with little sunshine. The outlook in general was guarded, but good weather returned before harvest, which was ripe and abundant. The wines contained satisfactory levels of alcohol and acidity, with pHs fairly high. The tartaric acid of the must was the lowest since 1970, yet the wines were very good to taste.

    The aromas are floral, sweet and fresh, with toasted brioche notes. In the mouth, the texture is at once velvety and dense, with developing flavors of candied yellow fruits, quince and marzipan, with notes of flowers and pepper. There's an overall character of precision and finesse.

    Food Match: sushi, salmon, pate, lobster, fish, crab.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A serious, considered wine with its full, ripe and soft flavors tempered with a complex structure. It will not age as impressively as other Pol Roger vintages, and already the yeast and toast element is creeping in. But the weight of Pinot Noir is there, leaving a powerful, creamy mousse finish.

    Ripe in tone, with a honeyed scent and hints of candied lemon, this wine retains a refreshing fruit character, clean, pute and zesty. There's a bright kiwi note to contrast the chalky minerality, the flavors lasting with finesse. For whole fish roasted in salt.

    Floral and poached pear flavors are supported by fine texture and vibrant acidity, layered with hints of toasted almond, graphite, cream and lemon curd, with a mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2020. 200 cases imported.

    The 2000 Brut Extra Cuvee de Reserve is a warm, inviting Champagne that impresses for its soft, textured fruit, open personality and creamy finish. Brioche, toast, light honey and flowers linger on the close. This is a delicious vintage Champagne to drink now and over the next few years. This is Lot L02001710A, disgorged July, 2009. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2018.
