The blend of Sir Winston Churchill is a closely guarded secret. I ask d’Harcourt every time we taste a new vintage. ‘I have not been drunk enough yet to tell you!’ he replies. I’ll keep working on it. Elusive details aside, Sir Winston steps up with a characterful presence in thepowerful 2006 season, with pinot noir commanding a confident lead in spicy fig, mirabelle plum and red apple fruit, intricately toned by the bright lemon, grapefruit and crunchy pear of chardonnay. With time in the glass, a gorgeous presence of red cherry fruit rises andsweeps in a captivating display of youthful fruit integrity. Time moves slowly in Pol Roger’s deep, cold cellars, and the tell-tale signs of maturity in nutmeg and almond are but fleeting glimpses, its age declared more dramatically in gorgeously seamless and silky texture. The signature, salty chalk minerality of the greatest crus of the Côte des Blancs and Montagne de Reims lays out a finish of outstanding line and enduring length, with a bright acid line that defines the finesse of the house and promises medium-term potential. A highlight of the season.
