Pol Roger Sir Winston Churchill 2009
Sir Winston Churchill is Pol Rogers flagship cuvee. A blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir 100% from Grand Cru vineyards. Made in honor of Sir Winston Churchill the first release was in 1975.
The wine has an inviting, bright golden hue, and a fine, regular stream of bubbles. At first the refined nose exudes subtle hints of brioche and sweet spice combining with citrus flavours and floral fragrances. As the wine warms in the glass, it becomes more powerful and the nose develops complex nuances of toasted nuts, acacia blossom and honeycomb. The palate is round and creamy supported by notes of fresh fruit. The structure is opulent, underpinned by fabulous balance. The finish is long and powerful. www.polroger.com
