Sir Winston Churchill was Pol Rogers most illustrious devot__e and customer. This champagne is made in his honour. The exact composition of this Cuv__ee is a family secret but it is likely that Pinot Noir dominates 70-80% of the blend with the rest being Chardonnay. The grapes are all from Grand Cru vineyards which were under vine during Churchills lifetime and it is only made in the very best vintages;Champagne Pol Roger created their Prestige Cuvee in homage to Sir Winston Churchill mindful of the qualities that he sought in his champagne: robustness, a full-bodied character and relative maturity. The exact blend is a closely guarded family secret but it is undeniable that the composition would meet with the approval of the man to whom it is dedicated: My tastes are simple, I am easily satised with the best. Pinot Noir predominates, providing structure, breadth and robustness whilst Chardonnay contributes elegance, nesse and subtlety. Composed exclusively of grapes sourced from Grand Cru Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vineyards which were already under vine during Churchills lifetime, Cuvee Sir Winston Churchill is only made in the very best vintages and is always released later than the other vintage dated Champagnes from Pol Roger, marking Churchills appreciation for older wines.
