Had with deep fried breaded Babybel cheese. Needed to sit in the glass for the bubbles to calm down. Some bitterness. very dry. Sourdough yeast, pinching yet palatable. Lingering finish but not haughty.
Vinous, bit of tuna oil, anise, aromatic and quite powerful with light nuts/walnuts in the finish. This is an extra brut and is very dry. Bubbles faded a bit too quick, but bottle was already opened for a while when tasted.
Light yellow colour with a stream of fine and tiny bubbles. Youthfully tight on the nose showing minerals, flint and citrus. The palate is youthfully rough of minerals and with some nice tones of almond Blossom and honey with a nice fresh finish showing green apples.

(NV Pol Roger Pure Brut Nature) Current release. Approximately one-third each of the three main varieties. This has a very clean and herbal white fruit style, quite crystalline, suggestive of white grapes coated in a little sugar crunch, also floral, with a little note of toffee behind it. There is certainly a little creamy-caramel scent too. Still very youthful on the palate, not totally composed, with some sweet whisky-mash notes coming in at the edges. Youthfully disjointed and needing to come together. Although there is a school of though that says zero-dosage cuvées shouldn't be aged, this certainly needs to be left to integrate for a few months at the very least. Lovely freshness though; it should be fine given time.
