Champagne Pol Roger

About Champagne Pol Roger

The son of a lawyer, Pol Roger began his vinous life as a merchant and importer. Founding his own champagne house in 1849, simply naming it “Roger”, the now legendary Maison began by making champagnes for other houses. As the business grew, his sons Maurice and Georges renamed the business “Pol Roger” to honour their father.

Viniculture

The prestige cuvée of the historic and prestigious Pol Roger was named in recognition of Sir Winston Churchill's devotion to their Champagne. Allegedly, he imbibed over 42,000 bottles during his lifetime - the reward for such an achievement (amongst others no doubt!) is, apparently, having one of the leading prestige cuvées in the entire region bear your name! The production of cuvée Sir Winston Churchill is much smaller than many of the other prestige Champagnes (just 20% the volume of Dom Pérignon). Because of this lower production level, mature vintages of Sir Winston Churchill are much rarer on the secondary market and carry a substantial premium.

Astonishingly, the level of Sir Winston Churchill produced is less than 1/5th of that of Dom Perignon. Thanks to that most lethal combination of excellence, fame and dramatically limited availability, mature vintages of Sir Winston Churchill are fleetingly rare on the secondary market, carrying very substantial premiums.

Pol Roger Sir Winston Churchill 2006 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (95)

Made in the very best vintages, Pol Roger's white-golden colored 2006 Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill offers a very clear, precise, ripe and complex bouquet with fruity and refreshingly chalky, nutty and brioche notes. Full-bodied and complex on the palate, the 2006 is supple, round and rich but also fine, elegant, fresh and well structured. It has a harmonious yet tight, persistent and very promising finish that puts this silky textured, Pinot-dominated cuvée (the exact blend is a closely guarded family secret) on the border of fatty richness. But the mousse gives so much freshness and finesse that everything seems lifted here. Though I have very limited experience with matured Champagnes from Pol Roger and namely Churchill, I suppose the 2006 will benefit a lot from further bottle aging. But don't get me wrong: the wine is already gorgeous. Tasted June 2018, disgorged in June 2017.
