Pol Roger's prestige cuvée, named after its most famous customer, is consistently one of the best. A Pinot Noir-dominant wine it has great richness, depth and complexity and can age for many years.

Immediate complexity on the nose – salted bread, green apple, a hint of butter. Sweet spice too, and a mushroom earthiness that shows the age. Rich and full on the palate, with superb concentration and persistence, leaving lots of umami/soy complexity on the finish. Is it Burgundian? Certainly vinous, and there is both marine minerality and savoury fruit, but in a different guise to Burgundy. Wonderfully expressive to drink now, but has a good decade of ageability if not more.
