  • The Sir Winston Churchill Cuvée was created in 1975, on the occasion of the tenth anniversary of his death. This cuvée pays homage to Churchill, a family friend of the Maison Pol Roger, bringing together all the qualities he appreciated in Champagne: strength, structure and maturity. The blend, the details of which remain a secret, was created in the image of Winston Churchill's spirit and personality. Its colour is old gold, its effervescence is very lively and delicate, its bouquet is vigorous with aromas of dried fruits, strongly-scented flowers and buttery pastries, while its palate is abundant, slightly honeyed and finely spiced.

    The Pol Roger champagne house was founded in 1849 in Aÿ and moved to Epernay two years later. The brand quickly became known internationally, especially on the British and US markets. As a matter of interest, Winston Churchill even described Pol Roger as the most delectable address in the world! A cuvée in his name was launched in 1975. The property owns 92 hectares of vineyard planted between the Montagne de Reims, Côte des Blancs and Marne Valley. It selects its external grape supplies meticulously. When it comes to volumes, this champagne house, which is still family run and independent, is one of the "small" top houses. It is also one of the few producers to still riddle its bottles by hand. The champagnes are precise, consistent and of a very high quality, with a remarkable vinosity, depth and rounded character. They are often matured in cellars at the house for a long period and can be aged for many years.
