    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.

  • Defined by distinction and elegance, Pol Roger is considered the 'gentlemen's' champagne. Favored by Winston Churchill and the British monarchy, the Pol Roger brand is dedicated to the reflection of refinement, class, and an exclusive lifestyle. Created to display the unique union of family spirit and vineyard character, Pol Roger is a product of generations of knowledge dedicated to both vineyard practices and winemaking skill. The winery and cellars are located on the celebrated and noble Avenue de Champagne in the town of Eperney.

    Champagne is the northernmost wine region of France, located 90 miles outside of Paris. Its storied wine reputation dates back to the Middle Ages; a few of the top houses, to which so much of the region's fame is owed, have been producing since the early 1700s. As one of the coolest wine producing regions in the world, Champagne is perfectly suited to growing Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier at the low sugar/high acid levels necessary for sparkling wines. The region's famous chalk soils not only reflect sunlight back to the vines, helping them to ripen, but also impart minerality to the fruit, giving Champagne its characteristic flavor profile.
