Champagne Pol Roger Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill 2013
Champagne from France - Champagne
The top wine from one of the best grandes marques, this remarkable Champagne is an unmistakably pinot-dominant blend. Only the fruit of grand-cru sites is used, and each of these villages are fermented separately so the final blend can be an exact science. Almond and lemon on the nose, followed by a stunning fine-beaded palate of plum and fresh bread.

Pol Roger founded his eponymous house in 1849 and earned his living largely by making Champagne for other houses. Although the business started without an inch of vineyard to its name, it gradually acquired land of its own and now has 55 hectares in and around Epernay, including important sites on the Côte des Blancs and Montagne de Reims as well as numerous other vineyard plantings.
Pol Roger was known to be the favourite Champagne of Winston Churchill who was quoted as proclaiming, “In victory, deserve it. In defeat, need it!”. The prestige wine, Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill, was released as a tribute and although the blend is a closely guarded secret, it is believed to be pinot noir-dominated, reflecting the style that Churchill preferred.
Still run by descendants of the founder, Pol Roger is classic grande marque Champagne with a tremendous reputation rooted in the style and finesse of all its cuvées. It also has the kudos of being one of the few houses to hold the Royal Warrant. A blanc de blancs and a rosé, both vintage-dated are also produced, the former in tiny quantities.
