Champagne Pol Roger Cuvee Sir Winston Churchill 2012
Pol Roger is one of the few remaining great family-owned Champagne houses. An unrivalled reputation within the trade has been guaranteed by the consistent excellence of the wines: a tribute to the incredible diligence of the selection of the cuvees directed by members of the Pol Roger and de Billy families, in conjunction with the President du Directoire, Patrice Noyelle, and the Chef des Caves, Dominique Petit. With stock equivalent to five years normal sales, a major investment programme, and among the coolest and deepest cellars in Epernay, the Pol Roger range of Champagnes offers a glimpse of the sublime.
This was created in homage to Sir Winston Churchill who was a great devotee of Pol Roger's Champagnes. It is only made in the very finest years and only 10 vintages have ever been made to date. It is light golden yellow in colour, showing an intense creamy mousse and an elegant, floral bouquet as well as notes of dried fruits. On the palate, it is broad, rich and stylish, with great balance between the force and richness of Pinot Noir and the finesse and delicacy of Chardonnay.
Everyday Serving Suggestion
The weight, balance and elegance means that this Champagne could be served with Parmigano Reggiano matured for 18 months, a stued capon "facon demi-deuil" or sweetbreads cooked with morels. Can also be paired with Game, Fish in rich sauces, Escalopes and Lobster
