No surprise that it’d lost some if not all bubbles but it still had a depth of character that was unmistakeable. Waited too long but still enjoyed it.

This one sure put up a good show, striding on all clusters. From a perfectly ripe primary fruit character, through a defined secondary spectrum with fresh cream, butter and nougat, reaching all the way back home with a chalky finish. Great texture, with a persistent and fine mousse and a vibrant freshness. The wine can easily age for further development, while it will provide a good experience today.

Thank you all for the birthday wishes! I had a fabulous day yesterday which of course involved plenty of bubbly including this Pol Roger Champagne 2009 Vintage Brut which went down exceptionally well with our picnic.

It’s made from 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay and retails for approximately $114.

Pol Roger NV was the very first champagne I can remember tasting (when I worked at Glengarry in Auckland, New Zealand). From that point, I knew champagne was the drink for me!

Naturally in true birthday girl style, I had to Sabre it open. Thank you Mr Spittoon for capturing the moment 😘

In the glass this 09 champagne is a sparkly lemon shade with very tiny shimmering bubbles. The nose evokes thoughts of fresh bread, floral perfume and vanilla citrus. While in the mouth it’s smooth and round with an incredibly long citrusy finish. It’s got a peachy, nectarine oomph however it has incredibly moreish delicacy to it. More please 🥂

All opinions are based on my own taste buds. Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy!

Very structured. Needs a decant, or more time in bottle.
