    September 28, 2019 - "Mr. & Mrs. White" Anniversary Dinner (Friends' Rooftop, Pok Fu Lam, Hong Kong): Drank as an aperitif in large white wine glasses.....even more expressive than drinking it from large flutes the week before (see my earlier notes). This is so more-ish...fresh, elegant but already showing the underlying masculinity of the Sir Winston Churchill marque. This will likely last forever but it is so hard not to open a bottle already.

    September 22, 2019 - Occasional dinner group: A mixed set of wines. (@ Zarzo, Eindhoven, The Netherlands): Beautiful and concentrated bouquet with yellow tropical fruits and pear. On the palate full bodied and round, mild acidity, minerals, pleasant bitterness and a great length. Luxurious bubble with plenty of future. 95 – 96

    September 20, 2019 - Lemon gold. Languid mousse. Nose is slightly yeasty and roasted lemon. Palate is deep Epsom salts and lemon sherbet. Pronounced chalky dryness. Develops beginnings of lightly roasted hazelnuts with extended time in the glass. Very smooth but retaining an angular freshness and zest. A long bell chime of resonant length. Very elegant and still has youthful feminity rather than the more typical masculinity of Sir Winston. One of two bottles given to a friend for their birthday. This has developed quite a bit since I last drank it a year ago but I need to discipline myself to keep my remaining bottles in the back of my cellar for several years and drink the 1999 in the intervening time.

    September 2, 2019 - Pol Roger Winston Churchill Magnum 2002.
    Pen dybde her, røde epler, krydder, svakt autolysepreg og gjærbakst.
    Perfekt mousse av mikroskopiske bobler - strålende munnfølelse.
    Rik og konsentrert - samtidig svært elegant og balansert.
    Dette er virkelig bra.
    Pen nå, men dette kommer til å utvikle seg over mange år.
    Holder trøkket hele veien.
    Lang fast utgang med masse kraft.
    Særdeles lang ettersmak.
    Topp vin. 94-95p

    August 31, 2019 - Over dinner, no formal notes. Golden yellow in colour. Complex on the nose - yeasty, mineral, white and yellow fruit, nuts. Fresh and mineral on the palate, layered with good generosity and impressive length. 94-96?
