Another Spectacular Champagne from 2008

Perfect Champagne!!
Grab a bottle for the holidays!
Last time we had this one in February - it went fast!

Another Spectacular Champagne from 2008 
2008 Pol Roger Cuvee Sir Winston Churchill...$289.99
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.
