Pol Roger Cuvee Winston Churchill CONFIRM VINTAGE

Chardonnay Pinot Noir Champagnes Epernay France
Pol Roger's most prestigious Cuvee, only ever made in the finest vintages, a cepage of Grand Cru Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, sourced exclusively from vineyards which were under vine during Churchill's time. The relationship between Churchill and Roger dates back to a luncheon some months after the liberation of Paris, at which was served the sumptuous 1928 vintage. In attendence were Sir Winston and the beautiful Odette Pol-Roger. They struck up an instant rapport and the friendship between their families endures to this day.

The flagship Cuvee from one of the most venerable brands in the world, treated to two debourbages, one immediately after pressing and the second à froid after twenty four hours vinification at a chilly 7°C. Each individual parcel is separately handled, grape varieties and vineyard blocks are kept apart until assemblage. Upon completion to dry at temperatures not exceeding at 28°C, batches are treated to full malolactic, assembled and filled to bottle for secondary fermentation under the lowest Pol Roger cellars, thirty three metres below street level at a stable 9°C. Cuvee Winston Churchill is treated to old fashioned remuage by hand, a rarity in Champagne nowadays.
Intense golden hues, a spiral of the finest bubbles. Well structured nose, forceful but with subtle mineral notes and hints of lemon, white pepper and ginger. An august, mouthfilling palate, robust and powerful, saltiness and minerality, balance, structure and poise. The finish is astonishingly long, Sir Winston is a masculine Champagne, self assured and unforgettable, a wine full of character and charm to indulge for its complexity, pairing well with foie gras, canapes or a fine fromage comte.
