This is lovely stuff. Showing signs of age but very mellow and in place. Soft breads flavors with some apricot and a hint of honey. There are delicate floral notes on the midpalate and a very generous, balanced finish. Great subtle acidity too.

Ripe stone fruit, Meyer lemon curd, with sweet vanilla and buttered toast coming through on the palate and esp finish. Long finish and pronounced intensity.

Very pure and balanced-street side hazelnuts, smoke and saline all come together nicely.

Soft lime and confit lemon, fresh bright white flowers on the nose. Lovely mouthfeel and texture, with some secondary notes coming through and everything in great balance. An appley sweetness to this with beautiful acidity.

A simply magical 2008 Champagne, the 2008 ‘Sir Winston Churchill’ Champagne is a revelation from this dazzling vintage. The wine entices right away, showing lemon infused biscuit with shades of wild mushroom and baked pear aromatics that all mingle brightly in the glass. The palate shows incredible verve and freshness with a bright sense of effervescence and a silky soft texture. Once on the attack, the palate leads with bright bright lemon zest and green apple tones that collide with mushroom, peat moss and hints of freshly baked brioche. While outstanding now, this really needs another year of bottle age prior to being enjoyed. One thing is certain — the 2008 ‘Sir Winston Churchill’ will be exceedingly long lived. Drink 2020-2035- 96

I thought it was better than the 06 and left this off my postings from the weekend previously when WNH was together

A wonderful open knit nose with honey, acacia, limestone. On the palate a pretty sweetness and great body with a fine tingly acidity. A lovely bottle- fresh yet mature. Excellent

The ‘08 was more reticent than the ‘06 but still packing a zesty zing with marked freshness. @Joe Lucca
