Description:
This wine displays an intense golden-yellow hue and a lively stream of defined bubbles.

Upon initial impression, the nose reveals aromas of freshly squeezed lime and some autolytic development. As the wine evolves, complex aromas of lightly toasted brioche coupled with raisins and candied fruit become apparent.

The enticing aromas expressed on the nose are reinforced on the palate; boasting a powerful, rich structure, yet well-balanced with intensely flavourful notes of honey and citrus, lending a refreshing acidity.

The finish shows a remarkable length, typical of the 2002 wines, as well as being both rich and full-bodied.

Champagne Pol Roger created their Prestige Cuvee in homage to Sir Winston Churchill mindful of the qualities that he sought in his champagne: robustness, a full-bodied character and relative maturity. The exact blend is a closely guarded family secret but it is undeniable that the composition would meet with the approval of the man to whom it is dedicated: "My tastes are simple, I am easily satisfied with the best". 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, "Cuvee Sir Winston Churchill" is only made in the very best vintages and is always released later than the other vintage dated Champagnes from Pol Roger, marking Churchill's appreciation for older wines.

Producer Information

Great Britain is, and always has been, the premier export market for Champagne Pol Roger: a tradition dating back to the 1860's. For more than a century, Champagne Pol Roger (celebrating its 150th Anniversary in 1999) was represented in Great Britain by a single company, Dent & Reuss and its antecedents: a symbol of stability, continuity and mutual loyalty.
In 1990, with the closure of Dent & Reuss, Champagne Pol Roger resolved to establish its own subsidiary in Great Britain, Pol Roger Ltd.
The key management team from Dent & Reuss were recruited to the new company. With selective recruitment, the establishment has now grown to a closely integrated team of fourteen.
