Champagne Pol Roger created their Prestige Cuvee in homage to Sir Winston Churchill. The exact blend is a closely guarded family secret. Pinot Noir predominates, providing structure robustness whilst Chardonnay contributes elegance and subtlety. Composed exclusively of grapes sourced from Grand Cru Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vineyards which were already under vine during Churchill’s 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 Churchill’s appreciation for older wines.



The wine is an opulent golden with a fine stream of bubbles in the glass. The nose boasts notes of white flowers, freshly baked brioche, dried fruits and toasted almonds and hazelnuts, with a hint of orange zest. On the palate, the wine is well-balanced with flavours of citrus fruit, notably grapefruit, and creamy, pastry notes.
