Emblematic wine from one of Champagnes most prestigious houses
Immediately brilliant on show with a bright golden hue and hypnotically fine bubbles. Striking aromas of brioche, sweet spices, honeyed pears and acacia greet you. Further complex flavours of green apple, pomelo, honeycomb and mandarin orange are complimented by a texturally elegant mousse. Full-bodied, finely balanced and a delightfully long finish.

STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
The Winston Churchill Cuvée is selectively released in the very best vintages. Only grapes from Grand Cru vineyards are chosen, some of which were under vine during Churchills time. While the make-up of the blend is a closely guarded secret, it is dominated by Pinot Noir for structure and Chardonnay for finesse and elegance. Like the man himself, this wine is both robust and full-bodied. In similar fashion, if you are "only satisfied with the best", then this is for you.
