The esteemed 2002 vintage of the enigmatic Cuvee Sir Winston Churchill by Pol Roger delivers a concert of complexity and elegance. It is a compelling testament to the Champagne region's legendary resilience, bearing fruit from a year marked by harmonious weather conditions, allowing for perfectly ripe, healthy grapes.
The Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill is the decade's closest competitor, brimming with notes of confit citrus, stone fruits, mandarin, sweet dried fruits, smoke, and iodine. It's full-bodied, layered, and vinous, with broad shoulders, great concentration, and a lengthy, resonant finish. This has all of the breadth and flesh of 2012 but adds more structure and tension to the equation. The 2002 is still young now and will drink well from a cold cellar for the next two decades.
