Quality, consistency and investment potential

Thus refreshing balance between high-quality consistency and exhilarating variation makes the 1998 Blanc de Blancs from Pol Roger a compelling proposition for those seeking to add a stunning Champagne to their investment portfolio.

From its hypnotising golden hue to its tantalising tapestry of vivid, ripe citrus notes intertwined with impressions of brioche and nuts, this wine exhibits a sublime sensory dance, underscored by an undercurrent of chalky minerality truly representative of the terroir.


A vintage of benevolence

The year 1998 was graced with gentle winter conditions followed by mild yet sunny summers, paving the way for a generous harvest yielding excellent quality grapes across Dizy, Oiry, Cramant & Avize - the locations where these grapes were grown. This fortunate confluence manifested in elegant, expressive wines renowned for their harmonious balance.

This particular Chardonnay’s energetic acidity surges through the layered depth of flavours like an illuminated stream through an enchanted forest - both mysterious and exhilarating. Hints of orchard fruit complemented by delicate floral whispers unfold gradually to reveal an exhilaratingly complex finish that is as memorable as it is invigorating.

To conclude, if there's any 'Blanc de Blancs' that manages to encapsulate the quiet brilliance often associated with this style while still flaunting character nuanced by vintage variation, it has to be the 1998 Blanc de Blancs from Pol Roger; a sterling exemplar of Champagne's equitable marriage between consistency and evolution attractive to discerning wine investors.
