2015 Pol Roger Winston Churchill, "A Strong Effort" (WK)
We are delighted to offer a good quantity of the latest release of Pol Roger’s ultra-collectable flagship cuvee, the Winston Churchill 2015.
Named after its most famous patron and designed to reflect the make-up of the cuvee at the time that Winston Churchill was enjoying it, Pol Roger’s flagship cuvee is a real gem. A high proportion of Pinot Noir means a full-bodied and complex style that complements Pol Roger’s elegant style perfectly. In 2015 it is excellent.
Notes and scores from the critics are great for this. For Antonio Galloni, this “shows off the savory side of the vintage to great effect” and “Readers will find a nervy Winston Churchill marked by notable freshness and vigor”. William Kelley found it “Medium to full-bodied, vinous and concentrated, with bright acids, chalky structuring extract and a pinpoint mousse”.
Do take a look and let me know if you would like to secure a case or two.
2015 Pol Roger, Cuvee Winston Churchill
(6*75cl OC) @ £975 per case in bond

The 2015 Brut Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill shows off the savory side of the vintage to great effect. Hints of dried pear, sage, mint, dried flowers, lemon oil and chamomile open gradually in this mid-weight, lithe edition of Pol Roger’s tête de cuvée. The 2015 unfolds nicely with time in the glass, but I wouldn’t think of opening a bottle anytime soon. Readers will find a nervy Winston Churchill marked by notable freshness and vigor more than size. This is a fine effort in a vintage that has proven to be far trickier than most observers originally envisioned. Dosage is 7 grams per liter. Disgorged September 2022. www.vinous.com

A strong effort in a less-acclaimed vintage, Pol Roger’s newly released 2015 Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill opens in the glass with aromas of confit citrus, ripe orchard fruits and dried white flowers mingled with hints of honeycomb, freshly baked bread and anise. Medium to full-bodied, vinous and concentrated, with bright acids, chalky structuring extract and a pinpoint mousse, this inherently rather rich, gastronomic Champagne is quite tightly wound out of the gates and will reward a bit of bottle age. Stylistically, it is somewhat reminiscent of a modern-day version of the 1985
