2000 pol roger, sir winston churchill
Why We're Buying
Former British prime minister Winston Churchill loved Pol Rogers Champagne. He loved it so much that they named their top cuvée after him. The brut vintage features 50% chardonnay and 50% pinot noir, with the latter coming exclusively from grand cru vineyards. If this Champagne is good enough for Winston Churchill, it should be good enough for you.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The first thing that is evident about the 2000 Brut Cuvee Sir Winston Churchill is its finesse and total silkiness. The 2000 is a rich, creamy and deeply expressive Winston Churchill. I dont see the 2000 being an especially long-term ager, but it is wonderfully radiant and open today. Hints of pastry, spice, apricots and succulent ripe pears blossom on the expansive, broad-shouldered finish. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2030.
