Champagne Pol Roger Overview

Private Tasting Experience
This is an opportunity to taste six vintages of Pol Roger Sir Winston Churchill at your house or at a location of your choosing with an option to be tutored through the tasting. Nick our founder presents most of these tastings, however given enough time we will invite someone from Pol Roger UK to present the champagnes.

Sir Winston Churchill's relationship with Pol Roger dates back to 1945 when, during a luncheon given by the British ambassador to France after the liberation of Paris, Churchill met the charming and captivating Odette Pol-Roger. A friendship began which, indulged by his wife Clementine, lasted until his death in 1965. Each year on his birthday, Odette would send Churchill a case of vintage champagne. So close was his relationship with the family that upon his death, Pol Roger put black-bordered labels on all of their bottles destined for the UK. In 1975, Pol Roger went one step further and named their prestige cuvée after him, producing it in the robust and mature style that he liked so much. The exact composition of this cuvée is a family secret but it is likely that Pinot Noir dominates 70-80% of the blend with the remainder being Chardonnay. The grapes are all from Grand Cru vineyards which were under vine during Churchill's lifetime.

Included in this collection:
2006: A vivid golden colour with the fine stream of bubbles classic to the Churchill style. A slightly held back nose but the flavours on the palate a full of hazelnuts and almonds with an abundance of fresh fruits, citrus and balanced acidity combine to create a well rounded champagne with a great length at the finish.

2004: A deep-golden yellow colour coupled with lingering bubbles. Intense and complex aromas on the nose are full of dried fruit, toasted almond and honey. A sensational palate of full-bodied structure, well-balanced with refreshing acidity of peach, nectarines, plum and citrus fruits. The length on the finish is excellent, with added taste of pear lingering long after.

2002: An intense golden-yellow hue and a lively stream of bubbles. Aromas of freshly squeezed lime are reinforced on the palate, boasting the powerful and rich structure that Churchill so loved. Given its youth, this champagne still holds a lot in reserve but it has a masculine structure and phenomenal length. The only downside with this vintage from Pol Roger is that they selected much less than normal to go into this cuvée, so it's soon going to be a very scarce vintage.

2000: A mid-golden yellow colour, a continuous stream of delicate bubbles and an elegant powerful nose of peach and apricot. A balanced palate of fine lemon and grapefruit, this has has weight and complexity characteristic of both the terroir and the 2000 vintage. This is a cuvée that appreciates plenty of time in a large glass to unravel and will continue to improve over time.

1999 Magnum:The wine is a deep yellow gold, typical of most Churchill champagnes. On the nose an abundance of citrus and toasty notes leads to a palate full of expressive fruits with hints of honey. The bubbles are extremely fine and with a constant stream. The finish is long and lingering with such intense flavours.

1998 Magnum:A rich golden colour, this 1998 has a delicate mousse of tiny bubbles accompanied by scents of hawthorn and hazelnut. In the mouth, it displays a fine balance between fresh acidity and full-bodied wine. Truly a champagne of incredible depth and flavours that linger long on the palate: now at 17 years old, Sir Winston Churchill 1998 is still incredibly young and the magnums even more so.

Pol Roger Sir Winston Churchill 6 Vintage Experience includes four 75cl bottles & two magnums as described.
