1988 Pol Roger, Cuvee Sir Winston Churchill, Champagne, France

Decanted) As this Champagne was decanted, there were not many bobbles in my glass rising from the glass. But it didn’t matter one bit as this is a serious nice sibling. Nose is super classic – oxidized notes all over with dark bread and overall dark fruits. But the best thing about it – hiding in these dark fruits is a refreshing note of flowers, and it’s a perfect balance factor and what gives this champagne its character. It will provide many years of superb drinking pleasure. (95)
