Tasting Notes

In 1908 Winston Churchill placed his first order for Pol Roger and his association with the house lasted until his death. During the second world war he had it on hand at all times, borrowing a quote from Napoleon, 'I cannot live without Champagne'.

Reviews & Scores

Light gold with abundant, fine bubbles. Smoky, mineral-driven aromas of butter, toast, yellow apple and white flowers, with a hint of herbs arriving with air. Juicy, nicely concentrated orchard fruit and cherry pit flavors are sweetened by a gentle honeycomb quality and turn firmer with air. The buttery note repeats on the broad, sappy finish.

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

Beautifully pure, floral nose. On the palate a racy, energetic feel with nuances of stonefruit, acacia, brioche and underlying minerality. Lovely purity and vitality run like a vein through the wine, which has a long, crisp, slighty nutty finish. Exemplary Blanc de Blancs and great apéritif style.

TASTING NOTES

50% pinot meunier, 40% pinot noir, 10% chardonnay from Cumières, this is the classic non-vintage expression of Geoffroy’s house style.   The rich fig and red apple fruits create a compelling contrast with crisp acidity and tight grapefruit and lemon notes.  Three years on lees makes for generous maturity, reinforcing honey and fruit cake spice and a deliciously creamy texture.  Wonderful,...
