Description

The relationship between Champagne Pol Roger and Sir Winston Churchill dates back to a providential meeting at a luncheon given by the British Ambassador to France some months after the liberation of Paris at which the sumptuous 1928 vintage Pol Roger was served. Attending the lunch was the beautiful Odette Pol Roger as well as the Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, with whom she struck up an instant rapport. A friendship was born that continued until Churchill’s death, creating links between the Pol Roger and Churchill families which are still as strong to this day. The pressures of his post sadly prevented Churchill ever paying a visit to 44 Avenue de Champagne, the home of Champagne Pol Roger, but he nonetheless proclaimed it “the most drinkable address in the world”. As recompense for breaking his promise to visit he sent Odette a copy of his Memoirs inscribed “Cuvée de Réserve, mise en bouteille au Chateau de Chartwell”. He even named one of his racehorses “Pol Roger” and the filly strode to victory at Kempton Park in 1953, Coronation Year. Heritage and history-making a magical story, never minding the wine inside the bottle, simply superb.

Smells

The nose immediately exudes a complex bouquet of almonds, cashew nuts, and small, candied seeds, harmoniously counterbalanced by its vibrant sensation of youth and lightness mingling with mineral and floral fragrances. As the wine opens up in the glass, the scents of toast and Viennese pastries reveal all their richness and intensity

Tastes

The mouth tingles under its seductive attack, crisp, fresh, acidulous, and yet full of roundness and suppleness. Then comes a long-lasting intense aftertaste with hints of white flowers. This complex body gradually becomes more refined to offer a creamy texture reminiscent of pastry and toasted almonds, to finish with an exquisite salinity. Perfection in the glass. The class shines on every level.
