A Bottle of Bubbly - 1999 Pol Roger Blanc de Blancs

A found this beauty on a restaurant list for a bargain price and it was as good as I hoped it to be. With a duck liver first course it behaved beautifully.

1999 Pol Roger Blanc de Blancs
The nose is wide open with gorgeous notes of spring flowers, yellow pears, butter cookies, wet stones and some cap gun smoke. Medium intense with a fine depth and a beginning maturity. Very, very good.
The taste is smooth, fresh and yummy with lovely yellow sweet fruit paired with notes of fudge, pan fried nuts, summer flowers and lots of crushed rocks. The finish is long and full of finesse. This is in a great drinking phase but I wouldn´t be surprised if it could get even better with 5+ years cellaring.

  1. Which restaurant? :)

    1. Sorry...but they had the likes of 97 Guado al Tasso for 80 Euros etc etc, so I will keep this treasure for myself. What I can say, its not in the close Stockholm area...:-)
