    November 18, 2016 - Quick note. Surprisingly youthful at first. Quite firm and searing acidity. Bit shy on the nose, with mostly yellow fruits. After 30-40 minutes it broadens out showing more of the maturity in the bottle as well as the classic PR notes. Quite yeasty, and eventually sherry & funky notes come into play. What strikes me though is how well the sweetish fruit is holding up. Right now I like the 1986 bdb better. Will leave my remaining bottle to around 2020(+) I think to see if there is more upside to catch. 92-93 p for now.

    August 16, 2015 - Fin subtil nese med modne epler, nøtter, og søtbakst. Lekker på duft.
    Smooth moden munnfølelse med god konsentrasjon og flott syrespill.
    Meget godt balansert og klokkeren.
    Meget lang finish med syre og mineraler som biter godt.
    Pol Roger i knallform, og 1988 er nok en gang en høydare.
    Moden, men tåler mange år på langs.

    August 15, 2015 - Nice subtle nose with ripe apples, nuts, and brioche.
    Smooth ripe mouth feel with good concentration and great bubbles.
    Very well balanced. Very long finish with acid and minerals.
    Pol Roger in roaring form, and 1988 is once again a killer. Ripe, but can withstand many years lengthwise

    April 30, 2013 - Klar stågul. Mild nese, noe stein, sitrus og svakt hint av honning. Svakt støvete. Svakt så svakt hint av sherry.
    Frisk og ungdommelig frukt i munnen med høy, gjennomgripende syre. Noe grov mousse. Viser mer modning i munnen enn på nese. God intensitet. Lett kremet munnfølelse. Fin lengde. Overraskende frisk for alderen.
