The Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill was created as a tribute to the great man, as he was a close friend of the Pol-Roger family and long time consumer of the champagne. The Cuvée is consistently made in the style he preferred: robust, full-bodied, relatively mature and dominated by Pinot Noir which contributes firmness and backbone complemented by the ethereal elegance of Chardonnay. The Cuvée is composed of the only the finest grapes from the very best vineyards (and only those from within the Champagne area under vine in Sir Winston's day), chosen for declaration in only the best vintage years.
A mature Champagne that's developed subtle taste nuances yet remained lively. Posh texture plus ripe fruit and spice flavors that linger.
Classic, subtly complex Champagne aromas of toast, toffee, citrus peel, and yeasty fresh apple. Rich, full and ripe, with great depth of flavor and truly insinuating intensity. Complex notes of butterscotch and toasted nuts. Ripe, harmonious acids give this remarkably smooth wine excellent backbone for further aging. Extremely long. I rated this wine 93(+?) a year ago, and it has certainly delivered on its early promise. A pinnacle of the '88 vintage.
