2008 Sir Winston Churchill
Last year we offered the 2008 cuvée Sir Winston Churchill only for our initial allocation to sell out immediately. We are therefore delighted to confirm extra stock of this much loved Champagne. The 2008 vintage has received very high praise and big scores across the board, none more so than Stephan Reinhardt at the Wine Advocate, who described it as 'one of the finest of this century and one of the greatest Churchills of modern times.'
At £780 per six in bond, this is no everyday bottle but it compares very favourably with other smaller volume prestige cuvées from this hallowed vintage. It's also a delicious drink already, unlike some other 2008s which still need years of cellaring to be at their best. This Winston could become very rare, very soon so don't let it pass you by.
In Bond Offer
This is an in bond offer for complete cases only. The wines are already in the UK and available for delivery in bond or duty paid. Please indicate your preference in the wishlist order form notes.
2008 CUVÉE SIR WINSTON CHURCHILL Pol Roger

This latest release of the iconic Winston Churchill is another mesmerising rendition and deserved all the fanfare. A beautiful, small and precise bead in the glass feels perfectly fresh in the palate and lays the framework for an exhilarating mouthful of energy, brightness and delicious depth. High tones of some pithy lemon meet spot on crisp apple and a weightier mid palate of tightly furled white fruit flesh. Perfectly seasoned with pretty white blossom and Just a whiff of more savoury inensity, for now. The energy, power and balance are spellbinding. This whistles on and on long after you have swallowed. So drinkable already this will be a joy for the next 20 years and beyond! Drinking range: 2020 - 2045L&S (Oct 2018)
