Half bottle of Champagne Pol Roger Brut Réserve NV
Champagne from France - Champagne
Founded in 1849 by Monsieur Pol Roger, today the firm is still family owned. The company owns some 70 hectares of vines in both the Côte des 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.

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.

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.
