2009 Champagne Pol Roger Cuvée "Sir Winston Churchill", 6x750ml OWC
Regular price $8,280.00
- From one of the most highly regarded independent Champagne houses, based in Épernay, with over 160 years of family ownership and operation, and representing 5 generations of unbroken tradition and dedication to its Pinot Noir dominant style.
- This cuvée made in honour of the statesman, reflecting his character and taste for robust, mature and broad Champagne that still never loses its elegance or tension.
- Exclusively from Grand Cru Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vineyards that were already planted during Winston's lifetime.
"Particularly strong apples on the nose – even Golden Delicious, a variety I haven’t tasted in a while. Creamy texture and a slightly sweeter, certainly riper, impression than more typical vintages – certainly much fuller and more welcoming than the 2008. Like a liqueur version of Epernay character! But this wine is no simpleton; it really builds on the palate to a dramatically long finish. Powerful! Very friendly rather than stern and Churchillian. As Hubert de Billy says, the 2008 Churchill is for collectors, the 2009 is for drinkers."
