Champagne Pol Roger Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill 2012

"Old gold hue with gorgeous grey tints and a stream of lovely fine bubbles. The first nose exudes generous aromas of pastry with hints of vanilla and brioche, followed by subtle fragrances of sweet spice as it opens up. The bouquet then develops to reveal an array of dried fruit and candied exotic fruit mixed with notes of banana and papaya.The wine is honest and lively on entry, giving way to an attractive and opulent texture with a lovely balance. We are then treated to an extraordinary explosion of flavours, elegantly blending roasted almonds, acacia honey, hazelnut liqueur and gingerbread. This wonderful harmony is underpinned by a structure that shows a smooth, creamy and round character. Well structured with a superb aromatic persistence, this vintage 2012 is remarkable for its complexity and power." - Winemaker's notes

Champagne Pol Roger Rosé 2012

"Remembering the rather reserved phase in which I had found Pol Roger's 2012 Brut Rosé when I reviewed it in August, I pulled a bottle from my cellar to check in on its evolution. A few months have made a difference, and the wine is more expressive already, wafting from the glass with a lovely bouquet of plums, red berries, blood orange and toasted brioche. On the palate, it's full-bodied, muscular and vinous, with terrific depth and structure at the core, its ripe but racy acids balanced by considerable texture and concentration. While this remains youthfully tight-knit, I'm inclined to think I was very conservative regarding its ultimate potential." - William Kelley, Wine Advocate
