Central NJ CT Offline (Mistral - 66 Witherspoon St in Princeton): Fantastic nose - it's so good that it's hard to really want to drink it. Beautiful level of toastiness, very smooth, the bubbles are just soft. I liked this a lot more than the younger version we had a few months ago. There's a touch of oxidation going on here, but it adds to the complexity of the wine. Delicious. Time to drink up though.
Drank out of Mag. Crispppp. and very fresh. Drank with OT. We started with this before moving on the DP Rose Mag. Great balance and acidity-still has plenty of life in it- a champer you can drink all night.

(Pol Roger Sir Winston Churchill) We gathered at Eugene’s, recommended dining for those of you in the area, and started off with a delicious magnum of 1988 Pol Roger Sir Winston Churchill, which was in a great spot. Toasty and smoky with vanilla and white chocolate aromas, the ’88 was smooth yet long, tasty and balanced. There were great earth flavors and spritz along with some caramel sex appeal in this delightful magnum
(Pol Roger "Cuvee Winston Churchill") I have not had this bottling in a long time . . .maybe three years . . .and it showed brilliantly. Elegant would be the perfect word to describe this wine. It floated across your palate and deposits saline, apples and concentrated high-toned citrus fruits that seem to go all the way to the back of your throat. Really cuts deep. Gets very sappy with air but still retains its profound elegance. Haunting ethereal stuff and really has improved dramatically since I have had it last time. Still got loads of time before this is peaking.
