Pol Roger Extra Cuvée de Réserve, Champagne, France 1996
This shows a restrained nose, with sweet appley fruit, but it’s surprisingly reticent. In contrast, the palate is rich and full-bodied, firm yet not too assertive, and although it has become quite mellow it remains persistent and stylish. The long appley finish is excitingly racy.
