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'.
A deep ruby red. A vibrant nose with black fruit, sweet spice, and a savoury note. Dense black fruit flavors with blackcurrant and blackberry, together with a lighter note of plum, a hint of cedar and a good tannic structure.
Produced from clay soils on a base of limestone, this wine has zesty aromas of apple and apricot fruits with a hint of gunflint. Stone fruit characters on the palate are balanced by taut acidity which gives it an attractive lift. Drink from 2019. Armit Wines
