Remembering the rather reserved phase in which I had found Pol Roger's 2012 Brut Rosé when I reviewed it in August, I pulled a bottle from my cellar to check in on its evolution. A few months have made a difference, and the wine is more expressive already, wafting from the glass with a lovely bouquet of plums, red berries, blood orange and toasted brioche. On the palate, it's full-bodied, muscular and vinous, with terrific depth and structure at the core, its ripe but racy acids balanced by considerable texture and concentration. While this remains youthfully tight-knit, I'm inclined to think I was very conservative regarding its ultimate potential. William Kelley, Robert Parker Wine Advocate
The 2012 Brut Rosé is plush and effusive in the glass, with terrific richness and plenty of texture. There is a gorgeous sense of immediacy to the 2012 that makes it absolutely irresistible. Bright red berry fruit, spice and perfumed floral notes resonate with terrific depth. Medium in body and racy, the Rosé has so much to offer in a style that balances energy with richness.
