Champagne Pol Roger
Champagne Pol Roger is probably best known for being a favourite champagne of Sir Winston Churchill and many British Army Regiments. Pol Roger was born on December 24, 1831, the son of a lawyer, who started his own champagne house in 1849, with the first growths released in 1853. Based around the town of Épernay in the Champagne region, Pol Roger is still owned and run by the descendants of Pol Roger himself. The house has a reputation for producing champagnes of finesse and elegance which age very well.
Rich nose, deep and opulent - there is cream, tropical fruit, brioche and toasty vanilla notes - great elegance and a fine finish.
Goes very well with grilled fish, crab salad or even the odd canape.
