Pol Roger Cuvee Sir Winston Churchill 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

"Sourced in grand cru vineyards and blending Pinot Noir with Chardonnay, Pol Roger's 2008 Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill displays an intense straw-yellow/white-golden color and opens with a beautifully deep, fresh, concentrated and beautifully aromatic bouquet of perfectly ripe tropical fruits, refreshing lemons, very fine vanilla and brioche aromas. The attack on the palate is fresh and finessed, and in the following seconds, the 2008 reveals great airiness, precision, purity and intensity with a firm, persistent structure in the long, refreshing, perfectly balanced and mouthwateringly salty finish. The 2008 Winston Churchill is a highly complex yet focused and vitalizing prestige cuvée of great, great finesse, chalky expression and exciting elegance. It already drinks great but also indicates immense aging potential. It's most likely one of the finest of this century and one of the greatest Churchills of modern times." - Wine Advocate *(96 points)*

This great Champagne was created in homage to Sir Winston Churchill, a great devotee to Pol Rogers particular style and make of Champagne. Pol Roger is one of the few remaining great family-owned Champagne houses. An unrivalled reputation within the trade has been guaranteed by the consistent excellence of the wines: a tribute to the amazing diligence of the selection of the cuvees directed by members of the Pol Roger and de Billy families, in conjunction with the Président du Directoire, Patrice Noyelle, and the Chef des Caves, Dominique Petit. With stock equivalent to five years normal sales, a major investment programme, and among the coolest and deepest cellars in Epernay, the Pol Roger range of White Champagnes offers a glimpse of the sublime. Grapes : 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay Region : France / Champagne / Champagne AOC Notes : Intense, creamy mousse with a floral and elegant bouquet with delightful notes of dried fruits. A flavour which is stylish, rich and broad with incredible balance between the delicate Chardonnay and rich forces of the Pinot Noir ABV : 12.5% Suitable for Vegetarians

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. 500 cases imported. Bright gold with a

According to Wine Advocate - The 1999 Brut Cuvee Sir Winston Churchill, from magnum, is wonderfully rich and expansive, proving yet again just how well suited the big bottle is to Champagne.

Vintage: 1995 01/17/2009

Very tightly wound and racy, this packs citrus, hazelnut and vanilla pastry flavors into its medium-bodied frame. Well-integrated and dense, this has a long life ahead. Excellent lingering finish. Best from 2005 through 2015.(WS)
