    (Pol Roger Brut) A rich golden-yellow hue in the glass, and a rich bead. The nose is truly exuberant, full of rich brioche and cinnamon-tinged pastry, deeper honey-nougat elements mixed with praline, and exotic fruits, pineapple and more. It has purity too though, despite its warm and welcoming character. And with a nose like this, the palate is just as it should be; broad and soft at the edges, full of sweet and juicy exotic fruits, white peach, star fruit and pineapple, cut through at the core with a lovely, mouth-watering acidity. It has a well defined finish and overall some impact despite its very open character, but overall I think this is a wine for drinking now and in the next few years rather than extended cellaring - it's just too delicious to keep too long.

    (Pol Roger Brut) A rich, soft golden glow in the glass, with a good central bead surrounded by plenty of small-to-moderate sized bubbles. The nose is just gorgeous, broad and seductive, with elements of brioche, toasted almonds over notes of sweet stone fruit, white peach and more. The palate is just as the nose suggests it will be, generous but not flabby, soft and welcoming like a plumped-up down-filled pillow, enveloping the tastebuds and gently caressing them one by one. And yet it remains bright and lively, with a very linear core of acidity flanked by a finely poised mousse. This is absolutely delicious stuff, so approachable and easy-going and yet clearly of very fine, well-defined quality too. This, to my palate, is ready now - so I suggest you drink on. I've certainly been doing so!

    (Pol Roger Brut) This wine has an elegant composition with a fresh and crisp delineation beginning on the nose but carrying right through onto the palate also. Very broad in terms of impact, but it is also well framed. Fine substance and depth. I find this to be very approachable now, although it will certainly improve in the cellar given time.

    (Pol Roger Brut) A shimmering pale, straw-gold wine here, and a plentiful bead. A fine and elegant nose follows, lightly honeyed and nutty, quite pure and evocative. Rich and full of flavour on the palate, with lots of vivacity from both the lively mousse and the bright, incisive acidity, which is very nicely balanced out by the texture of the wine. Savoury, mouth-watering finish. Great wine which is very approachable now, but which should do very nicely in the cellar for 5-10 years (and maybe a lot longer, knowing Pol Roger).
