2006 Pol Roger Sir Winston Churchill
The wine displays a gorgeous white gold colour enhanced by a continuous thread of tiny bubbles announcing a lively ervescence. The delicate nose exudes scents of butter and brioche. Flavours of almonds and hazelnuts mingle with refined fragrances of yellow fruits dominated by the freshness of citrus fruits (tangerines).Then the wine opens up with savours of nougat and pistachio nuts. On the palate, the attack is fresh and reveals a perfect balance between acidity and suppleness. The aromas are reminiscent of the sweetness of cooked fruits associated with hints of almonds, dried fruits and quinces.
As the wine warms in the glass, it turns more rounded. Its silky texture is supported by a stunning length.
