Descrizione vino

This historical and prestigious wine produced by Pol Roger prises the denomination Champagne AOC, the highest recognition ever. It is a blend composed by Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. It is the most prestigious cuvee produced by Pol Roger. It was created for Winston Churchill that always supported the winery of Epernay, asserting: “My tastes are simple: I am easily satisfied with the best.”. “Champagne Brut Sir Winston Churchill” is produced only in the best harvest. It is known that it is the result of a blend between Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, but nobody, except the Maison, of course, knows the percentages of the two varieties. Elegance, class and delicacy are here directly linked to structure, vigour and aromaticity.

 

Features of this great Champagne by Pol Roger

The organoleptic exam shows a yellow colour with gold reflections and a refined perlage. The scent recalls squeezed citrus fruits that evolve in toasted brioche, raisins and dried fruits. Its taste reflects the perfumes. This cuvee is structured, sour and sweet at the same time, with a long persistence.
