PRODUCER

Pol Roger , Champagne, France

Recently we were delighted to receive a sample bottle of the 2004 Pol Roger Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill. Anxiously, we waited (with salivating mouths) for the wine to chill to the correct serving temperature before we could open and taste it and then... Wow! Boy, was it worth the wait!

Tightly wound, there is a nervous energy about it. It needs a few years of cellaring before showing its true potential and complexity. This is a wine where the Pinot Noir fruit shows the intricacies that can be achieved with intense earthy notes currently held together with searing acidity.

REGION

Champagne, France

It is said that a champagne bottle is popped open every second of the day somewhere in the world.

The last 20 years has seen unprecedented growth in export sales, led by the UK along with mergers and acquisitions of brands and estates by the big Champagne houses. Whilst auspicious brands as Dom Pérignon, Krug, Pol Roger and Louis Roederer's Cristal rightly command attention and respect, the very essence and spirit still remains with the growers and the quality of the vineyards.

As important as the big name brands will continue to be, Champagne domaines such as Pierre Gimonnet epitomise the spirit and, above all, future for this region. It is worth remembering that there are over 300 villages and defined vineyard areas in Champagne but only 51 of these command Premier or Grand Cru status.

The region's name conjures up an immediate sense of celebration and joie de vivree, revered the world, with an image which the Champagne industry has promoted brilliantly for over a hundred years.

TASTING NOTES

Absolutely outstanding. This low dosage cuvée captures the brilliance of 2008. Classic Gimonnet: racy, driving and mineral with real delicacy. This blossoms in the glass to reveal an underlying seriousness which will unravel with age. Spectacular today but with a big future.

TASTING NOTES

Giacosa’s Spumante is produced using the champagne method using Pinot Noir grapes. Matured on the lees for three years and riddled by hand, this is a softly textured wine with a very elegant mousse. The 2007 vintage has a lovely bready complexity on the nose and the palate is bursting with delicate white stone fruit characters. Delicious with food but...
