Pol Roger Cuvee Sir Winston Churchill 2012 3 LITRE
These are only the third and fourth release of their Prestige Cuvée, Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill, in Jeroboam, following the 1988 and 1999: the ultimate marriage of quality and quantity. Across all four vintages, just in excess of 500 jeroboams have ever been produced. The vintage jeroboams are hand-labelled and individually numbered- the 2012 from 1 - 198.
In Champagne, the jeroboam is the largest format (3l) where the secondary fermentation takes place in bottle. Champagne enthusiasts have long championed the merits of the jeroboam; the larger the format, the longer the fermentation, the greater the complexity.
Broad and impressive nose, with a distinctive Pinot Noir character that is so familiar of the Cuvée. Notes of Pink Lady apples, Manuka honey and lightly toasted hazelnuts. The texture is broad, as is so often found with Churchill due to the extended time on the lees, but paired back with taut, mineral and precise acidity. The contrast between richness and acidity helps round the wine and gives immediate pleasure, but will grow in complexity over the years for those who can resist.
