Pol Roger Champagne, Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill, vintage 2008-En Primeur (case of 6)
The 2008 vintage Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill is on course to be one of the very greatest Champagnes, deliciously enjoyable now but if you can be patient it will develop wonderfully with further cellaring.
Sourced in grand cru vineyards and blending Pinot Noir with Chardonnay, Pol Roger's 2008 Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill displays an intense straw-yellow/white-golden colour and opens with a beautifully deep, fresh, concentrated and beautifully aromatic bouquet of perfectly ripe tropical fruits, refreshing lemons, very fine vanilla and brioche aromas.
The attack on the palate is fresh and finessed, and in the following seconds, the 2008 reveals great airiness, precision, purity and intensity with a firm, persistent structure in the long, refreshing, perfectly balanced and mouth wateringly salty finish.
The 2008 Winston Churchill is a highly complex yet focused and vitalizing prestige cuvée of great, great finesse, chalky expression and exciting elegance. It already drinks great but also indicates immense ageing potential.
It's most likely one of the best of this century and one of the greatest Churchills of modern times.
