    (Pol Roger Cuvée Winston Churchill) This wine has a shimmering, vinous golden hue in the glass, and a powerful stream of very fine bubbles. The nose speaks very much of Pinot, kicking off with a creamy and biscuity seam, touched with rich and meaty overtones, with a slightly honeyed edge. On the palate this rich character sits at the fore to begin with, although it has a rather soft and broad style, perhaps surprisingly so. Despite the vintage I was expecting something rather more taut and focused. Although it is backed up by some soft acidity there is, however, a very fine and precise bead which does something to improve the vigour of the wine. Thankfully, there is rather more structure coming through the midpalate and towards the finish, giving a much better definition in the mouth. With a little time it begins to shows a fabulous composition on the palate, less soft, beautifully balanced, fresh and harmonious, with nutty-biscuity character. Long too. Overall this is a lovely wine with plenty of character, which is true to the Winston Churchill style, and which is eminently drinkable. A really good effort in a less than enthralling vintage for the region.
