Pol Roger Sir Winston Churchill 2004
Only 0 left
"The 2004 Pol Roger 'Cuvée Winston Churchill' is an outstanding young wine. It is a blend of old vine chardonnay and pinot noir, as Pol Roger stipulates that they will only use fruit for this bottling from grand cru vineyards that were planted during Churchill’s lifetime (he passed away in 1965). The wine was aged eleven years sur latte and finished with a dosage of eight grams per liter. The bouquet of the 2004 offers up a deep and complex constellation of apple, just a whisper of tangerine, fresh-baked bread, gentle notes of hazelnut, a beautifully complex base of soil and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, pure and full-bodied, with bottomless depth at the core, utterly refined mousse, lovely focus and grip and a very long, complex and elegant finish. This is quite open for a 2004, but with the impeccable balance to also age long and gracefully. Very high class juice. (Drink between 2016-2040)" - 96 points, John Gilman.
