2009 Pol Roger, Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill


$255.00 per Bottle


124 Bottles




"Pol Roger's 2009 Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill has turned out very well, offering up a demonstrative bouquet of golden apples, clear honey, hazelnuts and fresh pastry that's still quite primary. Full-bodied, fleshy and textural, it's deep and concentrated, with an ample core of fruit, ripe but racy acids, a pinpoint mousse and a long, penetrating finish. This is an expressive, deceptively immediate rendition of this bottling, yet despite its charm out of the gates, readers willing to wait at least five years will be rewarded with significant additional complexity."

"A seamless Champagne, lithe with fresh, finely knit acidity, and showing beautiful integration, with a rich vein of smoky minerality underscoring flavors of black cherry, toast, preserved lemon and pickled ginger. There's power and focus here, but this bubbly highlights the grace and accessibility that 2009 can offer even on release. Drink now through 2034. 500 cases imported." Wine Spectator

"The 2009 Brut Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill is a heady, explosive Champagne. Ample and deep, the Churchill is so expressive today. Apricot, tangerine oil, mint, baked apple tart and spice all flesh out. I would give the 2009 at least a year or two in bottle, as it is a bit tight at this stage. Even so, time in the glass brings out a feeling of raw power that is impossible to miss." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

Burnished Welsh gold, a nacreous luster, with a firm mousse and the finest bubbles. The nose thereafter captures the sunny temperament of the summer in question, hay-wain labors with the prospect of honey rewards, chamomile and acacia in the background; warmly embracing. The palate builds on this faithfully, with ripeness to the fore, green and red apples ceding to honeydew indulgence, guava and white peach. The nose waltzes through the Viennese patisserie temperamentally; however, it is far from fin de siècle. On the contrary, all is expressive, generous, forward, seasoned with soft spice and the discreet charm of confident bearing." Simon Field MW, The World of Fine Wine, Q2, Issue 68, 2020
