Pol Roger, Vintage Brut Épernay 1976

Pol Roger 1976 #2

Pol Roger 1976Ripe, substantial, complex nose: mint, hay, white mocha, toasted cereal and vanilla wafer.  Moreish palate, medium-full, with tinges of smoke and musk: lightly cooked white fruits, cola and butterscotch.  Masculine.  Terrific zip for a ’76.  And nicely grippy too.  Mineral flavors and an autumnal finish.  A joyous wine; fully mature but still very fresh, very precise.  Left us glowing with elation, this one.   And with its firm backbone, Pol Roger’s Brut ’76 will keep very well.
