Pol Roger 2006 Cuvée Sir Winston ChurchillRegular price $289.99
The wine displays a gorgeous white gold colour enhanced by a continuous thread of tiny bubbles announcing a lively effervescence.
The delicate nose exudes scents of butter and brioche. Flavours of almonds and hazelnuts mingle with refined fragrances of yellow fruits dominated by the freshness of citrus fruits (tangerines).
Then the wine opens up with savours of nougat and pistachio nuts.
On the palate, the attack is fresh and reveals a perfect balance between acidity and suppleness.
The aromas are reminiscent of the sweetness of cooked fruits associated with hints of almonds, dried fruits and quinces.
As the wine warms in the glass, it turns more rounded. Its silky texture is supported by a stunning length.
Pol Roger takes extreme pride in more than 160 years producing some of the world’s finest Champagne. Founded in 1849, Pol Roger is one of only a few Grande Marque Champagne houses that remains family owned and operated.
Their vineyard holdings equal to 92 hectares (225 acres). The balance of our sourcing comes from long term contracts with growers with whom we have worked for decades as if they were members of our “maison”.
Prior to final blending each lot is aged on its own, separated by village, vineyard, grower and grape variety. Once blended, each bottle of Champagne Pol Roger is aged and hand riddled in the 4.66 mile-long cellars under the Epernay château which are among the deepest (100 feet below ground) and coolest (48°F) cellars in champagne.
