External Reviews for Pol Roger Champagne Blend Champagne Selection Brut
Complex and mature, this is a formal, regal Champagne. It's classically pinot in its red fruit, layering cherry, raspberry and red apple. Yet all of that is surrounded by a paler spice - cumin, toasted wheat, baked quince. The dynamic flavors last over a minute after each sip, the bubbles informing the flavor or seeming to form it. A remarkable '93.

Dazzling balance and unique flavors make this memorable. Vivid, appetizing acidity melds with the fine mousse for a lively texture that carries the lemon, herb and mineral accents through a long finish. Drink now through 2003.
The 1986 Sir Winston Churchill is so very dry and austere that it was mistaken for Bollinger by a few tasters. Definitely a Champagne to have with food, this subtle, understated sparkler has a toasty nose, lots of power, depth, and good acidity. Typical of the Winston Churchill Cuvée, this is a long ager, although it is quite good right now.
A mature Champagne that's developed subtle taste nuances yet remained lively. Posh texture plus ripe fruit and spice flavors that linger. Drink now through 2004.
The structure of the 1996 vintage is softened by a fine, silky mousse in this intensely wrought bubbly. Fresh, with citrus, berry, nut and coffee aromas and flavors and a rounded finish. Drink now through 2015.
This is closed off, as many 1996 wines are at the moment. It's a great vintage of Winston Chruchill, a powerful young wine with mouthwatering flavors of cold-climate grapes and the chalky acidity that sustains them. Those flavors seem compressed and hidden for now, but the balance and minerality is clear. This has a long future ahead.
