Pol Roger Sir Winston Churchill

£170.00

This is the Pol Roger Sir Winston Churchill 2004 vintage, the 15th to be released, it is a full-bodied and robust wine from a great vintage that will age well too. The exact blend is a closely guarded family secret but Pinot Noir predominates, providing structure, breadth and robustness whilst Chardonnay contributes elegance, finesse and subtlety. Composed exclusively of grapes sourced from Grand Cru Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vineyards which were already under vine during Churchill’s lifetime.

Why Pol Roger Sir Winston Churchill?

The relationship dates back to a meeting by the British Ambassador to France some months after the liberation of Paris at which was served the sumptuous 1928 vintage of Pol Roger. Attending the lunch was Odette Pol-Roger as well as the Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, and a friendship was born which continued until Churchill’s death. He sadly never visited 44 Avenue de Champagne, the home of Champagne Pol Roger, but he nonetheless proclaimed it “the most drinkable address in the world”. He even named one of his racehorses “Pol Roger” which strode to victory at Kempton Park in 1953, Coronation Year.

Relatively pale gold in colour. Plenty of toast and brioche on the nose, with some seductive orange peel. On the palate, you can feel the Pinot tannins. The mousse is still lively. Impressive length. Not as intense as some, but quite broad on the palate.

The weight, balance and mineral freshness means that this champagne could be served with strong cheeses and sweets alike.
