Pol Roger Sir Winston Churchill 2004
Very refined with wonderful freshness yet has an underlying layer of bottle-age complexity, or is it delectable Pinot Noir character, The blend is a closely guarded entity!
Incredibly concentrated and powerful yet still young, sensual and fresh. Linear and defined with terrific length on the finish. Pale golden colour, with a honeyed, lightly toasty, very opulent. The varietal blend has always remained a secret as was promised to the Churchill family however expected to be above 80 % Pinot noir and Chardonnay the residual. The chardonnay although a smaller percentage allows the champagne to show its unmistakable length and poise. Chalk and Flinty notes co-ordinate with the primary Strawberry and red berry fruits, providing delicate character and elegance all the way through to the lingering finish.
