Pol Roger - Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill
This product is currently sold out.
Region: France / Champagne
Type: Sparkling wine
Vinification: The must undergoes two débourbages (settling), one at the press house immediately after pressing and the second, a débourbage à froid, in stainless steel tanks at 6°C over a 24 hour period.
Fermentation: A slow cool fermentation with the temperature kept under 18°C takes place in stainless steel vats. The wine undergoes a full malolactic-fermentation prior to final blending.
Color: The opulent golden color of the wine is enlivened by a fine, harmonious stream of bubbles.
Nose: 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.
Palate: On the palate, the wine is immediately powerful and yet exquisitely well-balanced; refreshing flavors of citrus fruit, notably grapefruit, are coupled with creamy notes of pastry. Long, lingering finish.
Food pairing: Matured parmesan cheese, roasted capon "facón demi-deuil" or sweetbreads cooked with mushrooms.
