Vinification:

The must undergoes two débourbages (settlings), one at the press house immediately after pressing and the second, a débourbage à froid, in stainless steel tanks at 6ºC over a 24 hour period. A slow cool fermentation with the temperature kept under 18ºC takes place in stainless steel, with each variety and each village

kept separate until final blending. The wine undergoes a full malolactic fermentation. Secondary fermentation takes place in bottle at 9ºC in the deepest Pol Roger cellars (33 metres below street level) where the wine is kept until it undergoes remuage (riddling) by hand, a rarity in Champagne nowadays. The very fine and persistent mousse for which Pol Roger is renowned owes much to these deep, cool and damp cellars.


Winery information:

Pol Roger is one of the few remaining great family-owned Champagne houses. An unrivalled reputation within the trade has been guaranteed by the consistent excellence of the wines: a tribute to the incredible diligence of the selection of the cuvees directed by members of the Pol Roger and de Billy families, in conjunction with the Président du Directoire, Patrice Noyelle, and the Chef des Caves,

Dominique Petit.With stock equivalent to five years normal sales, a major investment programme, and among the coolest and deepest cellars in Epernay, the Pol Roger range of Champagnes offers a glimpse of the sublime.

Estate note

The Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill is made only in the very best vintage years and is always released later than other vintage dated Champagnes from Pol Roger, a reflection of Churchill's appreciation for older wines.

Viticulture

The soil is chalk and limestone. The Chardonnay flowered on 14th June, with Pinot Noir flowering on 18th June. The harvest took place between 18th September to 10th October, producing a volume of 14,000kg/ha authorised.




Tasting Note:

This was created in homage to Sir Winston Churchill who was a great devotee of Pol Roger's Champagnes. Deep golden yellow in colour, it has a continuous thread of lingering bubbles. The elegant nose delivers intense and complex aromas, dominated by enticing notes of dried fruit, toasted almond and honey. On the palate, it is full bodied, boasting a powerful, rich structure, yet well balanced with refreshing acidity and flavourful notes of citrus fruits. The finish shows remarkable length, with creamy notes of butter combined with rich fruitiness of Mirabelle plum and tart, ripe pear.

Food Recommendation:

A pure delight of a Champagne to be savoured by itself or as an aperitif with foie gras on toasted brioche fingers. It is also the undisputed partner of rich dishes such as chicken supreme with chanterelle mushrooms or sweetbreads cooked with morels.
