94 Points Robert Parker
Sourced in 20 Premier and Grand Crus of the Côte de Blancs and the Montagne de Reims, the 2006 Vintage Brut is a cuvée of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay that was aged for nine years in the 33 meters deep cellar in Epernay. The deep golden-colored wine offers a deep and vinous, very clear and elegant nose of sweet cherries, stewed and baked apples, ripe stone fruits, cinnamon, chalk, brioche, sweet paprika, orangeade and dashes of lemon juice. Full-bodied, rich and round on the palate, this is a creamy textured though pure and highly elegant, firmly structured, powerful and persistent Champagne; it has a noble and rested expression, as well as a long, noble finish. This is midnight Champagne for noble jazz clubs with fine piano music, or to be matched with noble cigars.

The sublime 2002 and 2004 were tough acts to follow, and here comes the vintage to drink while they both wait in the wings. The warm-season 2006 is already deeper in hue, loaded with a fanfare unexpected for Pol Roger: tropical fruits, passionfruit, red apples and succulent nectarines, becoming vanilla cream and almond brioche. The precision of the house comes to the rescue in prominent chalk mineral structure and persistent lemony acidity.
