Not currently available.

A delicate, soft pink with Pol Roger's hallmark fine mousse. The nose is fresh, lively and fruity. First impressions are of red fruits, strawberry and raspberry, with a fresh but lingering bouquet. This is followed by warmer notes of wheats and dried cereals. Powerful and vinous in the mouth, the wine develops a fleshy texture underpinned by a firm backbone promising a long life.

Wine & Spirits

More vintages like 2002, please... especially if they give us wines like this rose, a quiet, persistent, thrillingly precise pinot noir with fruit that manages to be vivid and supple, a color that hints at fresh apricot and a scent that shifts from apricot to fresh red berries. The fruit presence submerges into the delicate fortitude of the tannin, reemergin with bass notes of wildflowers and high notes of rose. this has plenty of power in reserve if you choose to age it, and enough substance to pour with prawns in a mildly spicy Vietnamese green curry.

Score: 94. December 2010.

Wine Advocate

The 2002 Brut Rose Extra Cuvee de Reserve is a gorgeous wine, even if it is a bit buttoned up at this stage. Layers of well-delineated aromatics emerge over time, melding seamlessly into a chiseled, precise core of fruit. This shows quite a bit of depth and richness, all while maintaining superb freshness and clarity. Though delicious today, I imagine this will be a highly rewarding bottle to follow over the next decade or so. This is an absolutely exquisite Champagne from Pol Roger. The Rose Extra Cuvee de Reserve is 35% Chardonnay and 65% Pinot Noir, of which 15% is still Pinot, with full malolactic fermentation."

International Wine Cellar

Light, bright pink. Bright, expressive aromas of red currant, wild strawberry, white flowers and Asian spices, with a chalky undertone. Deeper cherry, licorice and subtle smoky qualities join the nervy red fruits on the velvety palate. Puts on weight with air, finishing with solid grip and lingering smoke and floral notes. This could still use some bottle age but there's enough complexity for guilt-free drinking now.

Score: 92. —Stephen Tanzer, December 2010.

Wine Spectator

Light and juicy, with ripe raspberry, blackberry and kirsch notes mixing with hints of spice and lemon peel. Shows good intensity in a more delicate package, with a floral finish. Drink now through 2012. 300 cases imported.

Score: 90. —Bruce Sanderson, November 15, 2010.
