Fresh in this is the latest bottling for 2020 of the Winston Churchill range produced by Pol Roger. This relationship between the two parties going back for over 80 years, after a chance meeting at a luncheon to celebrate the liberation of Paris in 1944 between Mr Churchill & Odette Pol-Roger. Churchill been a particular fan of Pol Roger Champagne instantly began a partnership that lasted up until his death in 1965. He even named one of his racehorses after the Champagne house that rode to victory at Kempton in 1953.
"Pol Roger's 2009 Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill has turned out very well, offering up a demonstrative bouquet of golden apples, clear honey, hazelnuts and fresh pastry that's still quite primary. Full-bodied, fleshy and textural, it's deep and concentrated, with an ample core of fruit, ripe but racy acids, a pinpoint mousse and a long, penetrating finish. This is an expressive, deceptively immediate rendition of this bottling, yet despite its charm out of the gates, readers willing to wait at least five years will be rewarded with significant additional complexity."
