    My all time top 10 Champagnes

    1 Pol Roger

                   
    Pol Roger Grauves Vinothèque 1928         100p  

    Disgorged in July 1998. Ridiculously young! I'd heard that this wine was supposed to be exceptionally lively and pale, but I would never have been close in my guesses if it hadn't been served in the last round at Villa Pauli in 1999, where there were only oldies. The nose was fabulously, beautifully braided, with notes of lime, linden, and lily of the valley. The taste was super-fresh, with a wonderful oily fruitiness that lasted for several minutes. My second bottle of this “out of this world” wine had the same date of disgorging, so it was with a certain hesitation that I dared wait five years before releasing the cork. The wine was enjoyed at one of the most magical dinners in the history of Swedish gastronomy, at the Pontus in the Green House restaurant in Stockholm, March 2003. That evening we drank a 1986 Selosse, three legendary vintages of Bollinger, two phenomenal Dom Pérignon Rosés, a '61 Comtes de Champagne, Ramonet, Lafite, Romanée-Conti, Richebourg, Romanée-Saint-Vivant and a 1947 Cheval Blanc. The '28 swept the floor! The nose was so intense that I was moved to tears. Its already phenomenal bouquet of aromas had expanded further, with exotic notes of coconut, papaya, and mint chocolate. Somehow, this wine—on the very day we opened it—stood at the apex of its life it succeeded in uniting the '79 Krug Clos du Mesnil's acidic elegance with a '76 Comtes de Champagne's exoticism and a '38 Krug's mint notes. I must admit that—spoiled and pampered as I am—I didn't think that a wine could affect me so deeply as this wine did that evening. I am in love!

    A year that is almost completely forgotten, but which produced the most delicious Champagne I have ever drunk. It was a shock of the positive kind when the cork flew off at great speed, and I saw the bubbling drink with its clear, middle-aged color. The nose cannot be described with words, but it was very like the 1945 Mouton Rothschild, with its tremendously rich tone of mint chocolate. There were also layers of fruit and minerals, and the wine was chewy and huge, with a divinely minty, bready, and nectar-like basic taste. The finish was majestic, with a clear tone of truffles and aged wood, alongside the mint chocolate. Is the '28 even better?

    A miracle of finesse mountain-stream-pure art when at its most subtle. Despite being only two points shy of absolute ripeness, I warn you that the wine is still very young and illusive. That I am delighted to the point of hearing angels sing is due to the delicate, subtle, spring-like beauty. Are birches more beautiful in bud or when they have just burst into leaf?

    It was very easy to find this '59 at a blind tasting with Antoine Billecart. No other vintage has such force. I find it hard to imagine anything better than a typical, monumental '59, perfectly combined with Billecart's uniquely subtle and mineral-rich, fresh house-style. Absolutely perfect Champagne in its category, with a smoky, honey-soft, extremely long taste of walnut, orange blossom, and honey. Afterward, I heard that Antoine's brother did not want Billecart-Salmon to contribute just any old bottle to the Millennium Tasting. You can guess what happened. It won!

    The height of elegance! The '85 reminds me of the '79, but I wonder if this wine doesn't reach even greater peaks. What balance and indescribable finesse! Sadly it's rare these days that I become so awestruck by a wine that I go through an almost religious experience. This wonderful, lime-fruity Champagne with its polished butteriness and sparkling clarity succeeded in inducing that feeling three days in a row during a tour with Henri Krug in November, 1995. A full and perfect wine.

    Comtes de Champagne 1976 201506 0 0 100 99 99

    This '76 was one of the Champagnes that sparked my obsession with the area and its wines. Never before have I tasted anything so exotic, fruity, and enjoyable. It still holds up very well, even if the character has changed a little. An enormous nose and taste of sweet lemons have now replaced the butteriness. These can be found in many mature Champagnes, but never as clearly as in the Comtes de Champagne '76. A classic milestone, and absolutely one of the ten Champagnes I would pick out for someone who doubts that Champagne can be really good and big. A champion in its class!

    One of the most magnificent wine experiences I have been through and probably the most delicious wine I had drunk in the last five years. Very reminiscent of Veuve Clicquot surreal 1955 vintage magnum. It has a spring-chirping sensual appropriation embedded in silk and caresses the soul as the sweetest love. While the wine is monumental and rich as a meal in itself. Another soulmate is actually the 1959 vintage from Billecart-Salmon who won the Millennium tasting..

    During an incomparable evening at the restaurant Pontus in the Green House, we succeeded in picking out three basically perfect Champagnes in different styles. A beautifully floral and acidly austere 1961 Salon was the first on the stage, before a Latour-like 1914 Bollinger blew away any memory of the Salon bottle. Last but not least was this perfect charmer. Simply the most perfect, caramel-sated cuvée.

    My Today

    Shipwrecked 1830's Champagne uncorked!

    Wednesday, the 17th of November will always be a day to remember for champagne lovers around the world. It was the day when the 150-year-old shipwrecked bottles were opened and the worth of the Baltic Sea’s champagne treasure was assessed.

    Some think that I live a life of luxury and am a bit spoiled. As I tasted an estimated six million euros worth of shipwrecked champagne in just three days, it is perhaps a bit hard to argue with - but I will still give it a try. The re-corking of champagne is hardly something I advocate, yet I was appointed as a consultant to the Åland government behind the decision to re-cork all bottles that were found aboard the wreck at Åland. After observing leakage of far too many bottles and as the origin could only be traced through the bottom of the cap, we had no choice.

     

    I was flown to Mariehamn, alongside an archaeologist and a technical team from Veuve Clicquot, for three days to re-cork and taste all the 168 recovered bottles. The exercise was fascinating and I am quite pleased with the results of the grading of each and every individual bottle. More than sixty bottles ended up in the first category of tradable good to outstanding wines, with about one-third ending up in the middle tier. These bottles are likely to be used as reserve or dosage wine in exciting cuvées the champagne houses are planning. The last third was undrinkable, often with a touch of seawater having entered the bottle. A few bottles were so terrible that we had to evacuate the tasting room after opening them. Imagine a wonderful dinner where between the courses you had to smell putrefied water for two seconds. Or do you remember in high school when someone threw a stink bomb with the unpleasant stench of rotten eggs? I always escaped home then, but this time I could not . After recovering from the shock of these odours I took a short walk for a bit of fresh air and went back to the bottles again. Our mind works, unfortunately, in a way that we remember the unpleasant smells all too well. Therefore, I could not enjoy many of the fine bottles that I placed in the highest category either.

     

    When I crawled into bed after officiating a hard day’s work, I remembered all too well the stench of manure, swamp and rotten eggs. Luckily, we managed to round off the evening with a few glasses of great red wines. It is not always easy being a Champagne expert!

     

    1830s Veuve Clicquot 87p

    One of two much spoken-about champagnes found onboard the unknown wreck in the southern section of the Åland archipelago in the summer of 2010. Since it is impossible to let the bottles remain at the bottom of the sea until the occasion for drinking them arises, the bottles that have been stored in individual water baths in the ”nursery” display great bottle variation and a lower carbon dioxide content than they had done at the bottom of the sea. Some bottles that appear perfect have unfortunately allowed seawater to leak in and so they are undrinkable. The bottles that are in good condition are a fantastic experience for all the senses to encounter. Apart from the characteristic aroma of farmyard, mature Brie de Meaux cheese and mushroom forest that immediately strikes one, there are exciting tones of leather, honey and crème brûlée. In the faintly tingling and extremely sweet basic flavour there is a very unexpected, green and youthful taste spectrum, in which lime and linden blossom are the leading notes. The entire wine is swept about by an enormous mystique and its intensity is almost numbing. As an experience, my assessment marks are miserly, but from an objective perspective of quality, they are completely fair.

     

    1830s Juglar 87p

    The first of the two champagnes to be salvaged from the Åland wreck during the summer of 2010. A firm that is nowadays extinct but that was in those days a second trademark at Jacquesson’s. Just as is the case with the bottles from Clicquot, I am waiting for the perfect item with lavish mousse. The six bottles I have tasted so far share the same Brie de Meaux nose as Clicquot and are actually even a touch sweeter. I want to describe Juglar as somewhat more robust and more rustic, and where the other champagne tends towards white blooms and lime, Juglar tends to breathe peach, mandarin and orange liqueur. This thing is also a joy for all your senses and considering that it is one of the oldest champagne in the world, its friendly drinkability and vivacity are a gift to humanity .

Deutz Vintage Champagne 1904-2008 / Deutz 1959 Wagner, Mahler, Brahms, Rubens, Churchill, St. Peter's in Rome, Karelia – they would all pale in the face of the monumental dark power of this wine! What Aÿ muscles and what a truffle-garnished cannonade of autumn flavours.

Richard Juhlin / The number One champagne expert in the world, Pro (Sweden)  had a tasting of  29 Wines  from  28 Producers 

Many prestige champagnes debuted in 1959 vintage, for example, Dom Ruinart and Pol Roger Blanc de Chardonnay. A large harvest of champagnes, that often ended up above 13 percent alcohol because of the extremely hot summer. The wines have proven to be very sustainable, despite the low acid. Power and concentration are great regardless if the wines are dominated by Chardonnay or pinot noir. A wonderful champagne year in its style!

Dom Perignon Rosé Oenothèque 1978 / An tremendously good, Burgundy-like magnum that Richard Geoffroy got out for me to go with a solid piece of meat covered with the blackest Mexican chili and chocolate sauce one could imagine. Should have been completely devastating as a combination, but Geoffroy's experiment was a gastronomic sensation thanks mainly to the wonderful acid and Dujac-like structure of the noblest Pinot Noir. Magnificent yet fresh with layers of orange and coffee under truffle and tones of bitter chocolate. 97 points

Cristal Rosé 1979  99 points / What delightful, life-prolonging caresses the best champagnes can give! I still smile secretly a week after the last drop has been swallowed. You can probably imagine how fantastically delicious it tasted, if you have at any time drunk Cristal Rosé or if you have recently sipped at a well-stored champagne from 1979.

Imagine the creaminess and luxurious opulence of that specific champagne along with its acids and the hazelnut essence of the vintage. Then you will end up fairly close to reality in a brave attempt to describe this indescribable wine.

We were specially invited to a timeless and luxurious Lunch at Deutz with amazing Vinothèque-wines. As one of the greatest high spots of the journey we would taste one of the very few remaining magnums of Deutz Blanc de Noirs d´Aÿ Vinothèque. One of the best and most famous champagnes in the world with an auction price of 14 000 euros.

"Paul Bara Special Club 2004 / Goodness gracious, what a surprise I received when I poured my club bottle and the wine was deep pink! I had absolutely no idea that there was such a thing as Special Club Rosé nowadays! One can only offer one's congratulations. The wine is very reminiscent of the non-vintage variety with somewhat greater weight, and refinement rich in mineral. Otherwise it gives the feeling of being just as young and unevolved. The fruitiness is vegetal with tones of beetroot and the beginnings of intense tones of wild bird pâté. When the wine is aired a great Pinot roundness makes its appearance."

Richard Juhlin / The number One champagne expert in the world, Pro (Sweden)  had a tasting of  24 Wines  from  1 Producers 

"Dom Pérignon Rosé 1959-2004 / All the books on wine that I have describe the wine served at the Shah of Iran's birthday party as the premier vintage of Dom Pérignon Rosé, 1962. And yet, amazingly, I ran into a bottle of '59! One is seldom able to drink wines that weren't made, but this appears to be such a wine! I was forced to check with Richard Geoffroy, who smiled mischievously and said: “Hmm, so you've found one of those? We made a few experimental bottles.” Whatever—the wine was enormously concentrated and full of alcohol with a weight and length that crushed everything in its path. Absolutely the most powerful vintage of this wine, but lacking the ethereal sensuality of the best ones."

Richard Juhlin / The number One champagne expert in the world, Pro (Sweden)  had a tasting of  16 Wines  from  1 Producers 

"Dom Pérignon Oenotèque 1988 / For several years I've run into late disgorged versions of older vintages of Dom Pérignon, with half the dosage and a few years of bottle aging after disgorging. The date of disgorging has, in exemplary fashion, been stated on the back of the label. Now Richard Geoffroy has tired of the constant questions about these wines and decided to check the release of these Champagnes himself—in order to make sure that they are absolutely at their peak when the customer enjoys the wine. The label is impressive, with a black background and classic “Dom” shape. The wines are a kind of Dom Pérignon R. D. Personally, I think that Dom Pérignon—with its toasted, reductive style—is better suited as a late disgorged wine than Bollinger's oxidative, beefy Champagnes. The autolytic mushroom-smelling character is never very intrusive with Dom Pérignon. Strangely enough, this wine tasted slightly coarser than the normally disgorged version. Briliant in magnum."

Richard Juhlin / The number One champagne expert in the world, Pro (Sweden)  had a tasting of  77 Wines  from  47 Producers 

"The best Champagnes from 2002 vintage: As in Bourgogne, this is a beautiful and generous vintage with a bright future in store. It
is the rst time that I start to feel a tad old in the game. Because I have tried the vintage before in my life! Yes, the 2002 is so strikingly similar to the 1982 that I think I can predict the vintage’s whole life curve. I believe in a very linear curve without ups and downs. The wine will eventually become more buttery and fatter, with a relatively high acidity, and it will do its job in silence. The wines will reach their top at twenty to thirty years of age. Most promising
so far are many growers such as Egly-Ouriet, Michel Arnould, Pierre Gimonnet & Fils, Jacques Selosse, and Diebolt-Vallois. Amour the Deutz, Piper-Heidsieck, Perrier-Jouët Belle Époque Blanc de Blancs, and Louis Roederer Cristal are pure nectar, but the most intellec- tually challenging are Jacquesson’s vineyard wines Champ Cain and Vauzelle de Terme."

Richard Juhlin / The number One champagne expert in the world, Pro (Sweden)  had a tasting of  55 Wines  from  33 Producers 

"Vintage 1996 / Probably one of the greatest vintages. Not since 1928 has there been a wine with as much acidity in combination with high potential alcohol, which should cater to a really long life. Just like 1990, there are examples of wines that are made with almost overripe grapes with lower acidity. These examples show a transparent oxidative and rounded pro le. Otherwise, most of the 1996s are real child abductions, with a biting acidity and monumental inherent power. I am highly impressed by the grand-cru growers, with Jacques Selosse and Diebolt-Vallois eur de Passion in the lead. Dom Pérignon is wonderful as are Cuvée William Deutz Rosé, Louis Roederer Cristal, Cristal Rosé, Krug Clos du Mesnil, and the monumental Bollinger Vieilles Vignes Française and Krug Clos d’Ambonnay."
