Pol Roger Winston Churchill label 2
Wine Enthusiast:  One of the great Champagnes both for its richness and its longevity, this latest incarnation is superb. The wine's richness is linked to the ripe fruit and the dominance of Pinot Noir in the blend. It also shines in the perfect balance between the texture, the minerality and the integration of the fruit. It can be enjoyed now, but it will be better from 2020 and then for many years to come. *No. 4, Top Cellar Selections of 2018. 100 Points

Wine Advocate: Released in October of last year, Pol Roger's 2008 Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill is showing brilliantly, unfurling in the glass with a complex bouquet of waxy citrus rind, dried white flowers, freshly baked bread, iodine and honeyed yellow apple. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, powerful and vinous, with a deep and multidimensional core, broad structural shoulders and considerable concentration, girdled by tangy acids and displaying a youthfully frothy but incipiently fine mousse. The finish is long and intense. This is a terrific rendition of this reliably superb cuvée and well worth seeking out. 97 Points

Tyson Stelzer: 
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 the powerful 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 and sweeps 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.

Pol Roger Blanc de Blancs 2012
$177.00 a Bottle

Pol Roger BdB Label
Wine Advocate: Disgorged in March 2017, the 2012 Brut Blanc de Blancs is excellent, delivering a complex bouquet of warm pastry, dried white flowers, lemon oil and some smoky, gently reductive top notes. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, ample and fleshy, with a rich but precise core of fruit that reveals all the concentration of the vintage but is elegantly rendered, underpinned by tangy acids and concluding with a precise, chalky finish. Drink 2020-2040. 94 Points

Pol Roger Rose 2009
$158.50 a Bottle

Pol Roger Rose Label
Wine Enthusiast - Roger Voss: 
This perfumed wine has just the right color and lively, crisp acidity. The full-bodied feel is very much the house style of this producer, giving richness from ripe red fruits as well as balanced acidity to finish. The wine is generous and ready to drink.

$320.00 a MAGNUM NEW!
 
Pol Brut Vintage Label Wine Advocate - William Kelley:  Disgorged in March 2017, the 2012 Brut Blanc de Blancs is excellent, delivering a complex bouquet of warm pastry, dried white flowers, lemon oil and some smoky, gently reductive top notes. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, ample and fleshy, with a rich but precise core of fruit that reveals all the concentration of the vintage but is elegantly rendered, underpinned by tangy acids and concluding with a precise, chalky finish. 94 Points

Pol Roger Brut Vintage 2009
$145.95 a Bottle 
$305.00 a MAGNUM

Pol Brut Vintage Label Wine Enthusiast - Roger Voss
The latest vintage release from this producer, this is beautifully balanced with white fruits and touches of citrus paralleled by a tight mineral texture and acidity. It is still young, because vintages from this producer age for many years. Drink from 2020.

Pol Roger Brut NV label Tyson Stelzer: Pol Roger's infamous 'White Foil' is an attractive and refreshing apéritif, and the 2009 base has transcended its season and delivered the freshest, purest expression of this cuvée I can remember - the ultimate validation of 15 years of winery upgrades. On first release, it sang with all the youthful jubilation of lemon zest, crunchy apple and pear, harmonising with finely honed chalk minerality. Now, towards the end of its release, it is still every bit as impressive, showing its maturity in toasted marshmallow, wild honey and nutmeg flavours and a creamy mouthfeel. The new-found palate line and persistence in this cuvée is singly the most laudable achievement of the new Pol Roger. 94 Points

Dow 1985 Label
 
Dow's Vintage Port 1985
  
How about a 34 year old Vintage Port for Christmas Day?

Neal Martin, Vinous: The 1985 Dow's Vintage Port has a gorgeous, very pure bouquet with mulberry, leather, terracotta tiles on a warm day, and hints of clove all beautifully defined. The palate is very well balanced with supple tannin, lightly spiced on the entry, touches of liquorice and black pepper, curry powder and ginger with a very harmonious and long finish. This may well be the pick of the 1985 declarations and appears to have edged past the Taylor Fladgate 1985 in recent years. Tasted at the "Big Fortified Tasting" in London. (Drink between 2018-2040). 93 Points

For the Love of Port: 
Possibly the darkest and most extracted color of the night, opaque and inky. This is always a tremendous Vintage Port and way up in the 1985 pecking order. A fragrant floral bouquet with boysenberry and kirsch dominating the air space. Great concentration of fruit, a freshness that stands out with primary plum and ripe, off dry blackcurrant flavors. Packed with intensity, in a youthful, fruit forward, muscular frame. The medium-body of this Dow belies the density that gives it a more massive feeling. At the same time it can seem light and glides effortlessly across the palate. The persistence of the layered finish is a significant strength. Drink now with a long decant time, or cellar for up to another quarter century. 93 Points
