A brilliant pale gold in color, its bouquet redolent of lengthy ageing on the lees, the palate firm, full-bodied and intensely flavored, with tones of fresh brioche and hazelnuts, the 1986 Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill will offer rewards well into the 21st century.
Power and intensity in a glass. Bold and full of bread dough and apple, with a marmalade note, married to a big, firm structure, it still seems youthful. A brilliant Champagne that should develop beautifully.
Deep, expressive aromas of nut skin, minerals and earth; this has developed markedly on the nose in the past year. Then extraordinarily powerful, thick and concentrated, with huge palate-saturating extract. Like a solid in the mouth, yet with this cuvee characteristic austerity. Offers superb complexity, strong balancing acids, and an almost painfully tactile back end.
