[Wednesday 14th April]
Having discovered Fortnum and Mason's "Champagne of the Month" last month (so good in fact, I went three times in March!) I was keen to try out this month's offering: Pol Roger.
So Chie and I headed to the 1707 wine bar in the basement of Fortnum and Mason after work, wherein we shared a flight of Pol Rogers. Here are my tasting notes:
Brut Rèserve: oddly a hint of lightly charred wood, but very sharp and zesty. Really very youthful and zingy.
Vintage 2000: Fabulously complex nose, something different every time, from bananas, through demerera sugar to dry roasted nuts.
Pure NV: very "karakuchi" (dry on the palate) - the Asahi of champagnes! Plus some underlying bitter fruit - grapefruit etc.
