Cuvee Sir Winston Churchill 2009
$339.99 a bottle *
Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast Magazine
As always, this Pinot Noir-dominated Champagne is a great wine. In this vintage, it is fuller than usual, perhaps less structured—a true reflection of the vintage. Like all releases of this cuvée, the wine will age magnificently. Drink now or hold for at least 10 years to get full maturity. 97 Points
William Kelley, Wine Advocate
Pol Roger's 2009 Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill has turned out very well, offering up a demonstrative bouquet of golden apples, clear honey, hazelnuts and fresh pastry that's still quite primary. Full-bodied, fleshy and textural, it's deep and concentrated, with an ample core of fruit, ripe but racy acids, a pinpoint mousse and a long, penetrating finish. This is an expressive, deceptively immediate rendition of this bottling, yet despite its charm out of the gates, readers willing to wait at least five years will be rewarded with significant additional complexity. 2023-2050. 95+ Points
Wine Spectator
A seamless Champagne, lithe with fresh, finely knit acidity, and showing beautiful integration, with a rich vein of smoky minerality underscoring flavors of black cherry, toast, preserved lemon and pickled ginger. There's power and focus here, but this bubbly highlights the grace and accessibility that 2009 can offer even on release. Drink now through 2034. 95 Points
Cuvee Sir Winston Churchill 2006
$699.50 a magnum *
Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast Magazine
This is the latest release of this legendary wine. A blend, although with a majority of Pinot Noir (Churchill's preference), the wine is rich, just beginning to show wonderful signs of maturity. It still has intense fruit along with the taut mineral texture that will allow the wine to age further. It is a standout Champagne from this vintage. Drink now, although this Champagne will age for many years. *Editors' Choice*. 98 Points

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. 97 Points
Blanc de Blancs 2012
$177.00 a bottle *
Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast Magazine
This beautifully balanced wine aligns the tautness of the Chardonnay with swathes of rich apple and lime flavors. It is vibrant, still ripe with freshness and acidity. Drink now. 94 Points
William Kelley, 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
Brut Rose 2012
$177.00 a bottle *
Arriving early December
William Kelley, Wine Advocate
Remembering the rather reserved phase in which I had found Pol Roger's 2012 Brut Rosé when I reviewed it in August, I pulled a bottle from my cellar to check in on its evolution. A few months have made a difference, and the wine is more expressive already, wafting from the glass with a lovely bouquet of plums, red berries, blood orange and toasted brioche. On the palate, it's full-bodied, muscular and vinous, with terrific depth and structure at the core, its ripe but racy acids balanced by considerable texture and concentration. While this remains youthfully tight-knit, I'm inclined to think I was very conservative regarding its ultimate potential. Drink 2022-2042. 94 Points
Wine Spectator
Sleek, lightly mouthwatering acidity in this elegant rosé Champagne, with a subtle plushness to the fine mousse. Long and minerally on the finish, echoing more fruit and spice details. Drink now through 2029.

Brut Vintage 2012
$147.95 a bottle *
$320.00 a magnum *
Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast Magazine
This rich, full-bodied Champagne is a classic from this producer. Its richness is emphasized by ripe Pinot Noir that dominates the blend, typical of the house style. A blend of grand and premier cru wines from across the Montagne de Reims and Côte des Blancs, this wine will age much further. Drink from 2022. 96 Points
William Kelley, Wine Advocate
Disgorged in October 2018, the 2012 Brut Vintage offers up aromas of smoky peach, apples, pastry cream, white flowers and mandarin. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, broad and powerful, with more volume and amplitude than its blanc de blancs counterpart, revealing racy balancing acids, an already refined mousse and the impressive concentration that typifies this low-yielding vintage. It's a classic blend of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay that saw seven grams per liter dosage. 94+ Points
Brut Vintage 2009
$320.00 a magnum *
Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast Magazine
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. 94 Points
William Kelley, Wine Advocate
The 2009 Brut Vintage blends 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay from 20 grand and premier cru villages in the Montagne de Reims and the Côte des Blancs. Fermented in stainless steel with each variety and each village kept separate and malolactic completed, the 2009 aged eight years in the cellars before being hand-riddled and disgorged. Disgorged in October 2017 and tasted in June 2018, the 2009 shows an intense, concentrated, pretty vinous and profound bouquet of ripe fruit, chalk, brioche and nutty/almond notes. Full-bodied and rich but fresh and even refined on the palate, this is a very elegant, round, charming yet well-structured and vinous Vintage Brut with a clear, fresh, structured and remarkably persistent finish. It drinks already very well today, but its aging potential is most probably stunning. 93 Points
Pure Brut NV
$125.00 a bottle *
Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast Magazine
Dry, certainly, but also with the richness always associated with this producer, the Champagne is full of freshness with white fruit and a tight, mineral texture. This style demands some more bottle age, so drink this bottling from 2021. 92 Points
Wine Spectator
Rich notes of almond biscotti, baked currant and lemon pastry cream are well-balanced by racy acidity and a pure tang of salinity that crackles on the fine, satiny finish. Drink now through 2022. 92 Points

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
