We are delighted to offer Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill 2012 to you. As you might already be aware, 2012 is one of the finest Champagne vintages of this century, with William Kelley noting of the 2012 Cuvée Sir Winston “reminiscent of a hypothetical blend of the 2008 and 2002, with the cut of 2008, and the richness of 2002.”
Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill is only ever produced in small quantities and from the finest vintages and comes, entirely, from the heart of the Grand Cru vineyards. This is only the nineteenth release since the first vintage, 1975, was released in 1984.
Broad and impressive nose, with a distinctive Pinot Noir character that is so familiar of the Cuvée. Notes of Pink Lady apples, Manuka honey and lightly toasted hazelnuts. The texture is broad, as is so often found with Churchill due to the extended time on the lees, but paired back with taut, mineral and precise acidity. The contrast between richness and acidity helps round the wine and gives immediate pleasure, but will grow in complexity over the years for those who can resist.
