$1,472.15 / case(6)
”the « cuvee » 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 grands crus 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. Vinification & maturation the must undergoes two debourbages (settlings) one at the press house immediatly after pressing and the second a debourbage a froid in stainless steel tanks at 6°c over a 24 hour period. A slow cool fermentation with the temperature kept under 18°c takes place in stainless steel with each variety and each village kept seperate. The wine undergoes a full malolactic-fermentation prior to final blending. Secondary fermentation takes place in bottle at 9°c in the deepest pol roger cellars (33 metres below street level) where the wine is kept until it undergoes remuage (riddling) by hand a rarity in champagne nowadays. The very fine and persistent mousse for which pol roger is renowned owes much to these deep cool and damp cellars. Tasting notes the wine is a deep golden-yellow colour with a continuous thread of lingering bubbles. The elegant nose delivers intense and complex aromas dominated by enticing notes of dried fruit toasted almond and honey. On the palate the wine is full bodied boasting a powerful rich structure yet balanced with a refreshing acidity and flavourful notes of citrus fruit. The finish shows a remarkable length with creamy notes of butter combined with rich fruitiness of mirabelle plum and tart ripe pear.”- pol roger
