  • *Same bottle as @KARL_EK 2015-03-13.

    Developed nose with yeast, brioche, corn on the cob, a bit of tropical fruits, star fruit and fudge.

    Full bodied, medium acidity that feels somewhat flabby (though it stood side by side with Krug GC so that might have skewed the impression somewhat). Medium+ intensity and length.

    Really tasty, not as complex as the others (GAx2, Krug GC, and cuvée William Deutz) but charming and very approachable.

  • Fully developed on the nose with a medium+ intensity. It is toasty and chocolaty on the nose with butterscotch, syrup, deep tropical fruits, candied lemons, chalky minerality and forest floor.

    Dry on the palate with a medium+ acidity and body. The mousse is very soft with small delicate bubbles. The flavor intensity is medium++. Flavors of chocolate, nougat, butterscotch, baked lemons, bruised tropical fruits, toasted bread and baked red apples. The finish is medium++.

    Ready to drink now.

  • Anita's Fortieth (Rochelle Canteen): Magnum. Nicely rich, slightly bruised apple nose. Mousse a bit coarse through the middle though. Finishes well though, but doesn't feel as if it has the class of the 98. Very pleasant though. Coming back to it. Though, it has tightened up, found focus and line and the richer elements have melded. Far better. ****

  • En herlig, gylden gul farge danset i glasset mens kondensen gjorde alt enda mer innbydende. Et klart autolysepreg på duft. Brødbakst, modne gule frukter og nøtter. En rik og fyldig champagne, men med god friskhet. Fin og lett mousse. Modne gule frukter også på smak. Fin lengde med toner av grapefrukt i avsluttning. Vinen ble drukket til forkjellig sushi og maki. Det fungerte godt sammen og noen deilige toner med tropisk frukt dukket opp med matfølget. Wasabi var heller ingen hindring

    (Pol Roger Brut) Not quite the first taste of this vintage, but certainly the first encounter at home rather than in a large tasting. The wine has a lemon-gold hue, and a plentiful youthful bead. Aromatically it has some delicious characteristics, led by an array of autolyic aromas, especially notes of bread and porcini mushrooms, backed up by an almond twist. There is a fine freshness to it as well, a vibrant orange zest nuance. Fresh and vivacious on entry, nicely honed at the edges although there is a mild plumpness to the midpalate. Lovely autolytic style here, a prckling and nicely judged mousse too, with a very broad and flavoursome profile. Firm, lightly crisp, delicious but in a less soft style than the recently tasted 2000. This one has more lifted, citrus fruit nuances - rather reminiscent of a silex-terroir Sancerre (in style and composition - it doesn't taste like a Sauvignon!) - and it has great potential for the cellar I think. Fine.

    (Pol Roger Brut) This certainly shows a different character to last year when I suspect it hadn't long been disgorged. Now it has stony fruit on the nose, a very firm style, slightly nutty, elegant but tight and youthful. A lovely palate, creamy and elegantly composed, gently full, broad, stylish and yet fresh and defined. Lots of substance here. really very promising style now which should give plenty of pleasure in the future. A higher score.

    (Pol Roger Champagne Brut Vintage) Yeast and vanilla nose; tart citrus palate, solid, but a bit tight, with high acidity; medium-plus finish 92+ pts.

    (Pol Roger Brut) This is very youthful, with some residual sweet toffee and mallow aromas with just a faint trace of sulphur. Very softly composed palate, although it shows a good depth and substance in the middle. A nice frame, with sweet and smoky fruit, and good character on the finish. When this wine integrates it will be very good.
