Wine tasting note: 1990 Pol Roger vintage

1990 Pol Roger vintage

4th Sep 1997 Champagne Sparkling White

Preview Tasting - this hasn't even been shown to the press yet!
Pale gold with a much coarser mousse than the previous wines.
Restrained and delicate nose.
Quite sweet, fresh fruit. Fuller and fatter than the 1989 but not quite as weighty as the 1988. Very fresh with a long acidic finish.
A very young wine that has yet to find its balance - with bottle age the sweetness will recede and the flavours will broaden to match those of the fabulous 1988.
