Heiner Lobenberg über:
Champagne Sir Winston Churchill Flaschengärung 2002


Lobenberg: Diese Hommage an Sir Winston Churchill vereint alle Charaktereigenschaften, die Churchill an Pol Roger so liebte. Charakterstärke, Robustheit und Reife. Hier dominiert der Pinot Noir. Nur von Grand Cru klassifizierten Lagen und besonders langer reife auf der Feinhefe. Die Cuvée gibt es nur in den besten Jahren. Das ist eine der nobelsten Cuvées der Champagne. Viel Brioche und Honig, etwas frischer Tabak und trotzdem Salzigkeit am Gaumen. Ein Charakterchampagner. 96-98/100


Wine Enthusiast über: Champagne Sir Winston Churchill Flaschengärung

-- Wine Enthusiast: With its gold color and mature, toasty flavors, this is possibly the greatest Winston Churchill ever. It has weight and richness, with a dense, full and rich texture. It's in perfect balance, bringing together maturity and crisper apple and green plum fruit flavors that are cut with lemon. A mineral edge gives a nervy character that will allow this magnificent wine to age further. 98/100


Suckling über: Champagne Sir Winston Churchill Flaschengärung

-- Suckling: Fabulous aromas of dried apple, cream, mango and ginger follow through to a full, dense palate, but it's very, very fine. The bead is so, so fine. The texture is like silk. Truly superb quality. I love the contrast between richness and freshness. It builds slow on the palate and finishes so long and rich. This was 10 years on the lees. Mostly pinot noir. So superlative to drink. This follows 2000, 1999, 1996 and 1995. 97/100


Parker über: Champagne Sir Winston Churchill Flaschengärung

-- Parker: The 2002 Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill is developing superbly in bottle, and the wine is beginning to show wonderful complexity, wafting from the glass with scents of green apple, orange rind and pear that mingle with hints of warm biscuits, freshly baked bread and iodine. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, broad and fleshy, with ripe acids, appreciable structuring dry extract and concentration and a long, vinous and expansive finish. Readers with the 2002 Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill in their cellars should be very happy indeed. 96/100


Decanter über: Champagne Sir Winston Churchill Flaschengärung

-- Decanter: More about structural fascination than aromatic pleasure. With its high acidity and simultaneously rich and impressive depth, this is reminiscent of the heroic 1996, and is equipped to develop far into the future. 95/100

Winespectator über: Champagne Sir Winston Churchill Flaschengärung

-- Winespectator: There's a sense of quiet elegance and grace to this harmonious Champagne. Refined and lacy in texture, with finely wrought acidity lending focus and length to the spice- and graphite-laced flavors of ripe apricot and blackberry, lemon meringue pie, chopped almond and briny mineral. 95/100
