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.

Pol Roger was Winston Churchill’s favourite champagne, and this celebrated house’s most exacting style is this no-dosage bubbly, made from equal portions of all three champagne grapes - chardonnay, pinots noir and meunier - from three different regions. Without that comforting dosage dollop of sugar and reserve wine, Extra Brut has nowhere to hide and its very fine pinhead bubbles and creamy mousse lead on to a magnificent, crisp, taut palate with lots of elegant, chalky, minerally fruit to the fore and a fine, smoky, toasted almond finish.

Pol Roger is still myfavourite champagne house for pure, citric, sparkling joy – Pol Roger is one ?of the few independent houses left and one ofthe few which has perfected the ‘Pure’ nil dosage ?style. The key is apparently to select grapesfrom warmer vineyards and mature a little longer. A little drier than PolRoger’s normal Brut, but effortlessly elegant.

Still family-owned,Pol Roger is one of the champagne greats, renowned for its fine, flowery,traditional champagnes and adored by connoisseurs. Churchill once described PolRoger’s Epernay headquarters as “the world’s most drinkable address”.Typically, even this house’s Pure Brut Nature, without a comforting dollop ofsweetening dosage, is sublime, all smouldering, smoky, creamy fruit, with alovely, lingering, beef-tea finish. Gorgeous now, greater next year.

Expensive but exquisite upmarket dry champagne, refreshing without any sourness, leaving a clean but soft impression of yellow plums and pears.

Not sure where I’vebeen but I hadn’t tasted Pol’s Pure Extra Brut before this year and it turnsout to be one of the best zero dosage/non dosé (completely unsweetened)Champagnes I’ve tried. Too often they have all the charm of sucking on a lemon,but this has delicately honeyed peach and shortbread notes entwined withmineral freshness and elegance.
