Pol Roger Sir Winston Churchill 2008 - Giftbox
96 RP

eRobertParker.com | 96

x close Sourced in grand cru vineyards and blending Pinot Noir with Chardonnay, Pol Roger's 2008 Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill displays an intense straw-yellow/white-golden color and opens with a beautifully deep, fresh, concentrated and beautifully aromatic bouquet of perfectly ripe tropical fruits, refreshing lemons, very fine vanilla and brioche aromas. The attack on the palate is fresh and finessed, and in the following seconds, the 2008 reveals great airiness, precision, purity and intensity with a firm, persistent structure in the long, refreshing, perfectly balanced and mouthwateringly salty finish. The 2008 Winston Churchill is a highly complex yet focused and vitalizing prestige cuvée of great, great finesse, chalky expression and exciting elegance. It already drinks great but also indicates immense aging potential. It's most likely one of the finest of this century and one of the greatest Churchills of modern times. Tasted from lot L82002894D in July 2018. Disgorgement date unknown. The wine will be released in the second half of this year.

x close One of the great Champagnes both for its richness and its longevity, this latest incarnation is superb. The wine's richness is linked to the ripe fruit and the dominance of Pinot Noir in the blend. It also shines in the perfect balance between the texture, the minerality and the integration of the fruit. It can be enjoyed now, but it will be better from 2020 and then for many years to come.

Details

Cuvee Sir Winston Churchill莫屬。這系列之所以以Sir Winston Churchill為名原來是有一段故事。話說Sir Winston生前與酒莊主人份屬好友,又是Pol Roger年份香檳的粉絲,酒莊主人在Sir Winston過世後,決定按Sir Winston的口味,調配一款以黑比諾為主的香檳去紀念故友。該款香檳原意只出產一次,但在1975年Sir Winston逝世10周年首次推出市場後,竟然大受歡迎欲罷不能,酒莊最後決定以後在好的年份繼續推出這系列。

 

PREVIOUS VINTAGES OF THE CUVÉE

 

The first “Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill” was from the 1975 vintage and was released, in magnum only, in 1984, with the launch taking place at Blenheim Palace. There followed 1979, 1982, 1985, 1986, 1988, 1990, 1993, 1995, 1996, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2002, 2004, 2006 and now 2008. The latest vintage, 2008, is produced in very small quantities, it is available in 75cl bottle and 1.5L magnum.

 

THE STORY OF THE VINTAGE

 

Following some frost in December, the beginning of 2008 was marked by mild and humid weather conditions. However by contrast, March and April were cool and rainy, even hit by spells of snow and frost. Good temperatures in May rapidly boosted growth. The summer months were characterised by extremely variable weather, with storms in July, cool weather and limited sunny periods in August. The «Véraison» (changing of colour and onset of ripening) started in early August and by this point, the conditions in the vineyard were outstanding. September brought excellent weather, and the picking started on 15th September in sunny conditions. The grapes were healthy, and the sugar/acidity balance, perfect.

TASTING NOTE 

The opulent golden colour of the wine is enlivened by a fine, harmonious stream of bubbles.
At first, the rich nose boasts notes of white flowers and freshly baked brioche aromas. As the wine warms in the glass, it exudes scents of dried fruits and toasted almonds and hazelnuts, combining with a hint of orange zest.

On the palate, the wine is immediately powerful and yet exquisitely well-balanced; refreshing flavours of citrus fruit, notably grapefruit, are coupled with creamy notes of pastry.

This wine combines the fullness of the much-celebrated 2008 vintage with the unparalleled and much-loved style of the Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill. A long, lingering finish indicates that this wine has fantastic ageing potential.
