95 points James Halliday (Wine Companion): "One of my favourite champagne houses. This entry point has one-third each of pinot noir, pinot meunier and chardonnay from 30 crus, 25% reserve wines, spending 4 years on tirage. It has a flowery bouquet, terrific mouthfeel thanks to a hint of honey, and Meyer lemon cleansing the finish and aftertaste. Special. Closure: Cork. (Nov 2020)"

94 points Tyson Stelzer (The Champagne Guide): "(2014 base vintage; a blend of the three champagne varieties in roughly equal proportions; 25% reserves from 2–4 years; 150 parcels from 30 crus; 42–54 months on lees in bottle; 9g/L dosage). Pol Roger’s famous ‘White Foil’ is an attractive and refreshing apéritif, and the 2014 base is as magnificent as ever, loaded with all the freshness of focused lemon, red apple and white peach. Around four years on lees has built a creaminess to its mouthfeel, without yet progressing into secondary complexity. It flows seamlessly into a long and zesty finish, heightened by excellent salt mineral texture. The company’s investment in its facilities and fruit sources over the past two decades is now paying strong dividends, and individual parcel vinification preserves fantastic detail, showcasing its components with greater precision than ever. It projects fresher citrus fruit, more pronounced salt minerality and more seamless persistence – the most distinguished White Foil yet. The 2011 base suffers in the wake of this challenging season, upholding bright acidity and now presenting the almond-meal complexity of maturity, with a contracted dryness to the finish. (2020-2021)"

93 points Sylvia Wu (Decanter): "Richly biscuity on the nose, with steamed rice, fresh pear and citrus blossom complexity. Creamy mousse dissolves into red apple peel, lemon and stone fruits, with a depth of honeyed biscuits. The Reserve NV from Pol Roger is a blend of base wines from at least three vintages. With 6 months of post-disgorgement ageing, the wine is ready to enjoy now. Drinking Window: 2021-2026. (Oct 2021)"

93 points Bettane & Desseauve Guide 2022.

92 points William Kelley (Wine Advocate): "The new release of Pol Roger's NV Extra-Brut Pure is showing nicely, unwinding in the glass with notes of pear, orange, pink grapefruit, smoke and rye toast. Medium to full-bodied, chiseled and incisive, it's taut and tightly wound, with fine depth at the core, brisk acids and a pinpoint mousse, concluding with a dry finish. Drink: 2021-2035. (Mar 2021)"

92 points James Suckling: "A layered and complex Champagne with pie crust, lemon peel, dried apple, pineapple tart and subtle spice notes. Sleek bubbles. Creamy and delicious. Drink now. (8/8/22)"
