Pol Roger is a Champagne icon known for their vintage Brut and the legendary cuvee Winston Churchill (named for their biggest fan). A blend of 60/40 Pinot Noir and Chardonnay all sourced from grand cru vineyards, it’s extended time on the lees adds exceptional breadth, texture, and complexity. For the past 160+ years Pol Roger has been one of the top Champagne houses and was one of the earliest addresses to move towards the brut style instead of the sweeter sec and demi-sec favored at the time.
While the prestige cuvee Winston Churchill usually goes for nearly triple the price, this superb 2008 Vintage Brut is a phenomenal value for its best in class quality. 2008 was a fabulous year in Champagne offering energetic wines of tension with elegant aromatics so you know this is a special occasion wine that will ring in many fine moments to come. Cheers!
