Champagne Pol Roger Brut Réserve NV

Champagne from France - Champagne
Founded in 1849 by Monsieur Pol Roger, today the firm is still family owned and run by Christian de Billy and his son Hubert and their cousin Christian Pol Roger. Pol Roger own some 70 hectares in both the Côte de Blancs and Vallée de la Marne which supply 40% of their needs and their Champagne is consistently in the top half dozen in terms of quality. Sir Winston Churchill who loved it, memorably described Pol Roger’s residence as ‘the world’s most drinkable address’. This is the perfect aperitif Champagne: clean, floral, elegant and with a delicious biscuity flavour. Party Champagne par excellence but an indulgent treat with fish and chips too.

Pol Roger

Pol Roger founded his eponymous house in 1849 and earned his living largely by making Champagne for other houses. Although the business started without an inch of vineyard to its name, it gradually acquired land of its own and now has 55 hectares in and around Epernay, including important sites on the Côte des Blancs and Montagne de Reims as well as numerous other vineyard plantings.

Pol Roger was known to be the favourite Champagne of Winston Churchill who was quoted as proclaiming, “In victory, deserve it. In defeat, need it!”. The prestige wine, Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill, was released as a tribute and although the blend is a closely guarded secret, it is believed to be pinot noir-dominated, reflecting the style that Churchill preferred.

Still run by descendants of the founder, Pol Roger is classic grande marque Champagne with a tremendous reputation rooted in the style and finesse of all its cuvées. It also has the kudos of being one of the few houses to hold the Royal Warrant. A blanc de blancs and a rosé, both vintage-dated are also produced, the former in tiny quantities.

Delicious biscuit and autumn fruit character – seems a bit sweeter than in the past? Developing, oxidative notes on the nose, but nothing worrying. Exemplary stuff.

Another equal partsblend of the three main Champagne grapes, the base wine for the current releaseis 2008 with reserve wine from 2007 and 2006. Gorgeous, contemplative nose, socomplex, the oxidised and developed vegetal aromas are lovely, touched withhoney and toast, but apple fruit purity. The palate has a rich mousse, but thesweet concentration of fruit powers through. Just lovely stuff, of great styleand class.

Pol Roger was just 18when he founded his Champagne house in 1849. The white foil Brut NV is a vinousbullseye made from around 30 still base wines chosen from at least threevintages (equal parts chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot meunier). All toasted brioche,hazelnut, ginger nut biscuit and white peach, underlaid with soft spices. Spoton for sushi, oysters, cold lobster mayo, scallops wrapped in prosciutto,gougères, fish and chips or Thai dishes. A real standout when I tasted it againrecently. Top marks.

Drawn from 30 still base wines (the incredibly acidic still wine required before secondary fermentation takes place in bottle) across two vintages and made from a third pinot noir, chardonnay and pinot meunier, it is then aged in bottle for a further three years before release. The result is a thrillingly complex and rich Champagne with a wonderful depth of flavour.
