($82) Pale gold color, with a strong mousse. Youthful, tangy aromas of green apple and Anjou pear, with notes of oyster shell and fresh butter. Has size and weight on the palate, but the flavors are tightly wound and withdrawn right now. With air, tangy citrus and bright apple notes emerge but this is awfully young. Fresh and firm on the finish, with a brisk, lingering lemon-lime note.

This seems to have unwound now. Not bone dry but very creamy, complete and satisfying.

Probably one of the most predictable and ingratiatingly "Pol Rogerish" champagnes to have been made. With that I wish to say that the craftsmanship is superior and the result classical. Seldom has it been so easy to hit on the firm in a blind winetasting. Stylish breadiness, majestic fruitiness, magical mousse and an undertone of cellar mushrooms in a terrifically successful way.
