- Cellar Drink Now - 8 years (2019-2027)
- ABV 12.5%
- Closure: Cork
Pours magnificently with a fine plentiful mousse that shows excellent hold. The pale straw to straw coloured base has golden tinged edges and is finely threaded by an exceptionally persistent bead. Heady aromas of baked bread, yeast lees, dried honey, oily toast, cashew, citrus and brioche engulf the olfactory senses. Sheer brilliance, the palate is the epitome of a great Champagne from a outstanding vintage. Refined, complex, rich and long, its decorated with creamy textured flavours of yeasty baked bread, honeyed characters, oily toast and grilled nuts. Finishes with a burst of refreshing citrus freshness. Airy feel with stimulating acidity lending tension to the exceptionally long aftertaste.
Drink over the next 6-8 years.
One of the great Champagnes both for its richness and its longevity, this latest incarnation is superb. The wine's richness is linked to the ripe fruit and the dominance of Pinot Noir in the blend. It also shines in the perfect balance between the texture, the minerality and the integration of the fruit. It can be enjoyed now, but it will be better from 2020 and then for many years to come.
Released in October of last year, Pol Roger's 2008 Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill is showing brilliantly, unfurling in the glass with a complex bouquet of waxy citrus rind, dried white flowers, freshly baked bread, iodine and honeyed yellow apple. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, powerful and vinous, with a deep and multidimensional core, broad structural shoulders and considerable concentration, girdled by tangy acids and displaying a youthfully frothy but incipiently fine mousse. The finish is long and intense. This is a terrific rendition of this reliably superb cuvée and well worth seeking out. Drink 2022-2045.
William Kelley – Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate
This lovely, elegant version is more about restraint and finesse than power, caressing the palate with a silky mousse and a finely woven range of ripe Asian pear, biscuit and star fruit flavors, accented by elderflower, ground ginger and almond skin notes. Lightly mouthwatering, expanding on the chalk-tinged finish. Drink now through 2033.
I love the balance between weight and agility in this wine with a dense and compact palate. Yet, there’s brightness and creaminess that melts into the glass. Lots of brioche, pie crust and strawberry tart. Serious balancing act here. Drinkable, but better with a few years of age.
