Well Pol Roger is never austere but this is one of their richer, more brioche-like wines. Really deep-flavoured but vivacious in terms of its persistent bead. I don't think I would immediately take it for a Blanc de Blancs blind, although I suppose it is more like a rich Chardonnay than anything you are likely to find from an avant garde grower during Champagne Week. Very expressive of this mellow vintage and definitely ready to enjoy. Very easy to drink without food.
