    May 13, 2019 - A quick taste as others downed the bottle quickly :). Full and toasty with excellent depth. A purity that suggests elegance despite the weight. Great bubbles. (93)

    April 23, 2019 - Magnum. Honung. Bränt socker, tropisk frukt. Bra syra.

    April 6, 2019 - Creamy and still very much alive. Nuts, carmel, lots of lift.

    December 25, 2018 - Golden. Rich, deep and fine length. A creamy lactic note, with sweet marron glacée flavors. None of the typical toast and apple flavors, which is a nice change. Not heavy, and with sufficient lift to keep it fresh. Peak drinking now.

    (Pol Roger Cuvée Winston Churchill) Very cold when served, so allowed to warm. It opens up to reveal polished wood and nut oil aromas. The palate is a harmonious, nut-infused affair, with honey-tinged dried fruits. Impressive, but still youthful, rather reserved, a little diffuse and lacking in direction today. Nevertheless there is potential here.

    (Pol Roger Champagne Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill) Lovely autolytic, yeast and ripe lemon nose; great, elegant, yeasty lemon palate; medium-plus finish 94+ pts. (my favorite of the 66 Champagnes on hand for the tasting)

    (Pol Roger Cuvée Winston Churchill) A reserved nose, a touch honeyed and mealy, but a little reticent really. A fine palate, rich yet stylish, with a big and impressive, rounded character with more mealy-nuttiness like that on the nose. This is still very youthful but shows elegance combined with brooding potential. Currently one for the cellar, not drinking, and in time I think this will be excellent.
