1996 Pol Roger Blanc des Blancs
Fine bead. Apples, light toast and lemon zest. Elegant palate, fine and delicate acid. Undeveloped at this stage.
1996 Pol Roger Brut
Apple, pear and stonefruit aromas. Light fruit sweetness with good acid. Good length and weight.
1998 Pol Roger Brut
Sesame, touch of smoke and some red fruits. Decent flavour, but a fair bit of sweetness and little depth.
1998 Pol Roger Sir Winston Churchill
Lemon, toast, some spice and floral notes. Expansive palate with good persistence. Plenty of interest. Drinking well now and the next 4-5 years.
1996 Pol Roger Sir Winston Churchill
Smoke, citrus and toast aromas. Very fine palate with excellent acid and structural balance. Great length and depth.
1995 Pol Roger Sir Winston Churchill
Toast, mushroom and a touch of yeast. Good acid and flavour, but doesn’t measure up to the depth and structure of the 1996. Still a good wine.
1988 Pol Roger Sir Winston Churchill
Honey, toast, smoke and cinnamon. Good flavour and length. Medium power and nicely balanced. Excellent depth.
1986 Pol Roger Sir Winston Churchill
Tinned asparagus and old oak. Green palate taste. Not pleasant.
1979 Pol Roger Brut
Honey, pineapple and nutty characters. Nice flavour and good balance, just not much depth.
1997 Domaine Jean Grivot Clos de Vougeot
Cherry and earth on the nose. Stalky palate, slightly awkward. Okay but not special.
1999 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Vosne-Romanée Cuvée Duvault Blochet
Lovely nose with florals, cherry and swirling aromas of spice. Really good balance on the palate, medium depth and decent length. Moderate power and quite classy overall.
2006 Clos Salomon Givry 1er Cru Clos Salomon
Bubblegum and jubes with sour cherry aromas. Fruit driven palate with decent weight but no depth or complexity.
1966 McWilliams Traminer Sauternes
Orange gold in colour. Honey, apricot and brown sugar. Medium sweetness. Just holding on to life. Touch short but okay.
2006 Dr. Loosen Riesling Beerenauslese
Grapes, melon and honey. Lovely palate with great balance between sugar and acid. Deep and long flavour profile. Young with potential.
