    September 13, 2020 - Lots of toast, dusty mouth feel. Citrus and mineral flavors. Very well like by everyone. Good champagne for its price point -- 45$. Would buy again 92+

    September 8, 2020 - Another great showing. Slightly creamy and with texture that punches above its weight.

    August 28, 2020 - Starts with Apple and pear on the nose. Crisp mousse on the palate which softened over 1 hour. Palate was initially pear and tangerine, later blood orange ans persimmon.

    At $36, this is the house champagne, at least until the Vilmart comes in the fall.

    August 14, 2020 - Had for a birthday party for an admirer of Winston Churchill, so few notes. Pale straw color, with a light-medium body and a pleasant mousse. Touches of brioche and a bit of lemon. Very pleasant champagne.

    (NV Pol Roger Brut Réserve) Current release. As with the Pure Brut Nature served alongside, this is as usual a blend of approximately one-third each of the three main varieties. This has much more meat to it compared to the non-vintage 'Pure' cuvée, showing subtle elements of apple and biscuit; the Pinot Noir in this blend seems to be rather more expressive. And there is greater breadth to it on the palate as well, this certainly being the benefit of a sensitive dosage. It shows a fuller mousse and a more developed and integrated substance. Polished, still rather reserved but this is certainly accessible. As is often the case, an attractive wine.

    (NV Pol Roger Brut Réserve) The base vintage here is 2005, the blend the usual one-third each of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and 10% Pinot Meunier, and the dosage 10 g/l. A very pale hue in the glass, fresh and crisp and feminine in style, followed by a rather rich and fleshy style on the palate. Quite accessible at present, more so than expected from that crispy-fruit nose, with a broad and fresh presence of fruit here, highlighted by a beautiful floral character. Very fine.

    (NV Pol Roger Brut Réserve) A fresh and fairly pale hue even now, this being my last half bottle from this particular purchase, made in July 2007. The nose has developed in a quite glorious fashion, and now shows some fine honeyed brioche and crunchy, sweet, honey-roasted cashew nut. Delightful palate, fine mousse, very delicate and precisely defined, with deliciously maturing flavours. Fresh, with substance, and a little length, these have been great and very serviceable bottles.

    (NV Pol Roger Brut Réserve) Purchased July 2007. Another half bottle from my two cases purchased in Calais. A fairly rich hue, and a fine bead rising from the very centre of the glass. The nose is showing delightful maturity, with little nuances of praline, honey and toffee-coffee aromas. The palate has a fresh mousse, dry and finely poised, with a honey-praline character. A very nice wine, with a good characterful finish and even a little length.

    (NV Pol Roger Brut Réserve) Purchased July 2007. I have worked my way through nearly a dozen of these half bottles, and hardly written a note. Another two halves drunk in the last week has prompted me to do so. This wine has a totally correct appearance, and a very fine bead. There follows an enticing and joyous nose, initially lemony and then richer, with praline maturity. A delicious palate, fleshy and broad, but bright, fresh and balanced. There is plenty of flavour here, and a lovely sappy, organic finish. Fine, complete and really very stylish, this is now drinking very nicely.

    (NV Pol Roger Brut Réserve) Current release. A sulphurous nose, although it does not obscure the rich white and golden fruits that also reside here, and the traces of honey and nut beneath. A fine style on the palate, there is structure and definition and a fine composition. An elegant style, this is impressive stuff, nicely balancing a slight fruit sweetness and good acidity.

    (NV Pol Roger Brut) Reminded me of Chablis with bubbles. There was a nice green apple skin quality and pretty dense bubbles and might have lacked a touch of refinement. I have found that to be a problem in 98's - - - lack of refinement.

    August 2007 (link) 16.5+ points

    (NV Pol Roger Brut Réserve) Purchased Summer 2007. From a half bottle. In the glass, it has a pale, straw coloured hue, with a sparse but moderately fat bead which corresponds with the wine's youthfulness. The nose is similarly adolescent, showing a little bready-yeasty character, but also with the characteristics of Pinot Noir which in a young wine gives, as it does here, lots of fresh apples and notes of biscuit. The palate has a good style, a gentle and creamy nature, still a little angular and foamy in character though, but one has to remember that this wine has only just been released. It is attractive, flavoursome, but a touch forceful and obvious, and the profile is very youthful like that found on the nose. It rounds off with a nice, appealingly bitter finish. Here is a wine that is entertaining to drink now, and serves its purpose as a refreshing agent and a lifter of spirits well, but it will undoubtedly benefit from a year or two in the cellar, and I will certainly enjoy watching how it develops over that time period. During that time I would expect the Pinot characteristics to change and mature to a deeper, more meaty character, and while it retains its aromatics it should be fine.

    (NV Pol Roger Brut Réserve) Current release. Rather reserved, withdrawn, just a little nutty. Served incredibly cold which makes assessment difficult. I left it to warm in the glass. The mousse is good and taut. Refined style, full and creamy. Really well composed, with a little finesse showing on the palate. Delicious.

    (NV Pol Roger Brut Réserve) Finesse here. Light bready notes, with white fruits. A light bead. Quite sharp acidity, firm and persistent mousse, and a somewhat angular finish. I think this just needs a year or so in the cellar.

    (NV Pol Roger Brut Réserve) Restaurant stock. A lovely fresh nose. Very typical style on the palate, a blend of equal parts Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. Rich, flavoursome, but with a trace of elegance; lovely balance. Very good.
