    June 18, 2019 - On the nose: Complex, apple, hazelnuts, fudge, crackers.
    On the palate: Fruit and very fresh mineral acidity of seashells, green apples, grape and hazelnuts.
    Long finish

    Will live for many years to come.

    June 8, 2019 - Fabulous. The wine is dense while sill being light on its feet with lively acidity. This beauty has many years of wonderful drinking ahead. Sorry that I only have two bottles left; how did I drink the others so young???

    April 23, 2019 - Magnum. Smörkola, honung, bra syra, fantastisk glasutveckling. Ett stort vin.

    March 31, 2019 - Sir Winston Churchill 1996 has a substantial style of Pol Roger vintage, but only denser, more intense and longer living. It is a Herculean Champagne. Very fresh and full of vibrancy. Heavy of lees and brioche flavours, energetic. Like Pol Roger, it’s Pinot Noir driven, a bit of development, bruised apple, spiced almond biscuit. Generous flavours and structure. Weighty and tight on the palate with very sharp acidity. Piercing and complex rich aromas. A potent wine firing all cylinders! Impressive! (95/100)
