Now that really hurt

Drank at Lord’s whilst watching the cricket. This is a non-vintage, zero-dosage Champagne.

Champagne Pure, Pol Roger

Nice fruit on the nose, reasonably biscuitty. This smells like standard Pol Roger, and that is no bad thing. The palate is really rather acidic and direct, it bloody well hurt my poor stomach. Nice fruit, though, and a good, fine mousse. Reasonably long persistence of flavours on the palate, too, but the acidity dose dominate and this is just a bit too linear. For all of its style, I’d like a touch more weight and fat to the palate. Don’t get me wrong, this is a nice NV fizz, but I prefer the standard Pol.
