Pol Roger Winston Churchill label 2
Tyson Stelzer: 
The blend of Sir Winston Churchill is a closely guarded secret. I ask d'Harcourt every time we taste a new vintage. 'I have not been drunk enough yet to tell you!' he replies. I'll keep working on it. Elusive details aside, Sir Winston steps up with a characterful presence in the powerful 2006 season, with pinot noir commanding a confident lead in spicy fig, mirabelle plum and red apple fruit, intricately toned by the bright lemon, grapefruit and crunchy pear of chardonnay. With time in the glass, a gorgeous presence of red cherry fruit rises and sweeps in a captivating display of youthful fruit integrity. Time moves slowly in Pol Roger's deep, cold cellars, and the tell-tale signs of maturity in nutmeg and almond are but fleeting glimpses, its age declared more dramatically in gorgeously seamless and silky texture. The signature, salty chalk minerality of the greatest crus of the Côte des Blancs and Montagne de Reims lays out a finish of outstanding line and enduring length, with a bright acid line that defines the finesse of the house and promises medium-term potential. A highlight of the season.

Pol Roger Blanc de Blancs 2009
$158.50 a Bottle

Pol Roger BdB Label
Tyson Stelzer: For a house once led by pinot noir, Pol Roger is increasingly focusing on chardonnay in its vintage wines, and recent vintages of its Blanc de Blancs demonstrate why. The power and precision of the grand crus of the northern Côte des Blancs coalesce in the rich 2009 harvest to produce a beautifully refined blanc de blancs that captures the finesse and fragrant delicacy of Pol Roger. Dainty lemon and grapefruit lead out, backed by the understated succulence of white peach and the crunch of nashi pear in a long-lingering palate of bright acid line and frothing salt minerality. Almost a decade of lees age has begun to build a creamy texture and lingering, understated complexity of nutmeg, almond nougat and honey. It propagates with great persistence, sustained by the bright acidity of Pol Roger, even in such a warm vintage. A triumph of the season, and the vintage to drink over the next five years as we eagerly await the awakening of the sublime 200895 Points

Pol Roger Rose 2009
$158.50 a Bottle

Pol Roger Rose Label
Wine Enthusiast - Roger Voss: 
This perfumed wine has just the right color and lively, crisp acidity. The full-bodied feel is very much the house style of this producer, giving richness from ripe red fruits as well as balanced acidity to finish. The wine is generous and ready to drink.

Pol Roger Brut Vintage 2009
$145.95 a Bottle 
$305.00 a MAGNUM

Pol Brut Vintage Label Wine Enthusiast - Roger Voss
The latest vintage release from this producer, this is beautifully balanced with white fruits and touches of citrus paralleled by a tight mineral texture and acidity. It is still young, because vintages from this producer age for many years. Drink from 2020.

Pol Roger Brut Reserve NV
$52.50 a 375ml Half Bottle

Pol Roger Brut NV label Tyson Stelzer: Pol Roger's infamous 'White Foil' is an attractive and refreshing apéritif, and the 2009 base has transcended its season and delivered the freshest, purest expression of this cuvée I can remember - the ultimate validation of 15 years of winery upgrades. On first release, it sang with all the youthful jubilation of lemon zest, crunchy apple and pear, harmonising with finely honed chalk minerality. Now, towards the end of its release, it is still every bit as impressive, showing its maturity in toasted marshmallow, wild honey and nutmeg flavours and a creamy mouthfeel. The new-found palate line and persistence in this cuvée is singly the most laudable achievement of the new Pol Roger. 94 Points

Dow 1985 Label
 
Dow's Vintage Port 1985
  
How about a 34 year old Vintage Port?

For the Love of Port: 
Possibly the darkest and most extracted color of the night, opaque and inky. This is always a tremendous Vintage Port and way up in the 1985 pecking order. A fragrant floral bouquet with boysenberry and kirsch dominating the air space. Great concentration of fruit, a freshness that stands out with primary plum and ripe, off dry blackcurrant flavors. Packed with intensity, in a youthful, fruit forward, muscular frame. The medium-body of this Dow belies the density that gives it a more massive feeling. At the same time it can seem light and glides effortlessly across the palate. The persistence of the layered finish is a significant strength. Drink now with a long decant time, or cellar for up to another quarter century. 93 Points

Gevrey Dinner Noir Header

Let's Drink Gevrey-Chambertin! Dinner at Noir
  
If you didn't make it to our Vosne-Romanee Lunch on 3 March you missed the opportunity to not only enjoy some delicious wines but gain a wonderful insight into the vineyards, vintages and makers of this commune.

The event proved popular and so interesting that we are going to do the same for Gevrey-Chambertin.

The dinner will feature 12 wines split into three brackets of 4. The first bracket looks at Gevrey lieux-dits. Three of these wines come from the top end of the commune where the best Villages wines lie. However, the last one, Les Seuvrees, is the black sheep. It is a fine vineyard but lies at the very south and on the wrong side of the RN74.

Bracket 2 comprises 4 Premier Crus from 2016. They are well spread from north to south. One of the exercises much enjoyed at the Vosne lunch was comparing like wines and have the 1er Cru Champonnet from two makers.

The third bracket features four 1er Crus from 2015. Here we go from top to bottom - les Combottes is the most southerly 1er Cru right on the Morey border. Once again we have a matching pair - this time Les Cazetiers, once of Gevrey's best.

The wines will be accompanied by a 4-course meal at one of our favourite restaurants - Noir - in Richmond.
