Pol Roger, Rosé Brut 2002

I had great difficulty tasting this: every time I went to spit it out, I swallowed it! It was so moreish, I couldn’t help myself. Exquisite pale peach colour, sublime mousse, tantalising fruit, so yummy yet so classy – how on earth do they do that? The 2002 is a rosé of extraordinary finesse. 19.5pts/20
