An intense golden-yellow color dresses the Pol Roger prestige 2004 Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill, which opens with a clear, deep, dense, ripe, fresh, pure and elegant bouquet of matured apples, apricots and lemon flavors along with exciting spicy flavors. Although this Brut is already more than 11 years old, it is dew-fresh and still developing—slowly. This Champagne is highly complex and well structured on the palate, with grapefruit flavors; it is a full-bodied and intense, yet very firm, persistent, fresh and very elegant assemblage of unnamed Grand Cru Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays. It reveals a very long and complex, powerful but stimulating finish and, obviously, eternal youth. The finish is powerful and stringent, and reveals great aging potential. The wine is somewhat restrained and too compact at the moment, though, and should benefit from a longer bottle aging.
