What to expect


- Ranked 99 Points !

- Incredible vintage, one to cellar

- Great with caviar and lobster

Sir Winston is the distinguished gentleman of the prestige champagne world, and never has he looked more majestic than in 2008. The purity and finesse that define Pol Roger attain new heights in this scintillating season.

Pinot noir assumes a commanding lead, without force or ambition, yet with a confidence this cuvée has not seen since 1996, and a grace that transcends even that epic season and every other in recent decades.

Sir Winston captures the exuberance of the greatest pinot noir crus, and presents it with astonishing determination, exacting purity and pinpoint precision, eloquently articulating the tension of the finest intricacies of the 2008 season.

It leads out with the most gorgeous white cherries, elevating in time to the full depth of black cherries and strawberries, flowing harmoniously into layers of almond nougat, vanilla and brioche, brimming with mixed spice, even suggestions of dark fruit cake.

Its chalk mineral definition is a revelation of the highest order, surging with a deep infusion of super-fine, profoundly salty and deeply expressive chalk that rumbles to the very core of the greatest crus of the Côte des Blancs and the Montagne de Reims

Food suggestion

If it is good enough for her Majesty the Queen to drink every evening, then this it is good enough for us. Pol Roger is of the few champagne houses that have rightfully earned the British coat of arms to adorn every bottle and after all, it’s not just a favourite with the Royal Family but most of Britain, who know good champagne from the average. This medium-sized, family owned treasure of the Champagne region is the epitome of quality and consistency. With deep cool cellars, this maison leaves their cuvées ageing for far longer than most of their counterparts allowing the development of very fine and tiny bubbles. This creates a silky texture on the palate with subtle toasty notes that are the hallmark of excellent champagne. If ever in doubt, buy Pol Roger.
