#63 of Wine Enthusiast Top 100 Cellar Selections of 2021

Pol Roger is one of the few luxury Champagne firms which is still family-owned, and it was established in Epernay in 1849. Pol Roger was Winston Churchill's favorite Champagne so the estate named this rare Vintage Champagne for him. The opulent golden color of the wine is enlivened by a fine, harmonious stream of bubbles. At first, the rich nose boasts notes of white flowers and freshly baked brioche aromas. As the wine warms in the glass, it exudes scents of dried fruits and toasted almonds and hazelnuts, combining with a hint of orange zest. On the palate, the wine is immediately powerful and yet exquisitely well-balanced; refreshing flavors of citrus fruit, notably grapefruit, are coupled with creamy notes of pastry.

The great 2012 vintage shows well in this rich full Champagne. Dominated as usual by Pinot Noir the wine is powerfully ripe and impressively full of white fruits and tight minerality. Ready to drink from 2022 it is worthy of aging and certainly drinkable even in 10 years time.

Pol Roger's newly released 2012 Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill is showing brilliantly bursting from the glass with youthful aromas of honeyed pears toasted brioche pomelo fresh pastry green apple and mandarin orange with hints of stone fruit emerging with time in the glass. Full-bodied vinous and textural with an enveloping core of fleshy concentrated fruit bright acids and an elegant pinpoint mousse it concludes with a long penetrating finish. More muscular and vibrant than the generous and charming 2009 the 2012 ranks alongside the 2008 and 2002 as one of the three finest renditions of Sir Winston Churchill this millennium?and in style it resembles a hypothetical blend of those two vintages.
