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.

Tasting Notes

The Pol Roger Brut Vintage 2009 is instantly appealing with its gorgeous lively effervescence. Fine bubbles sprinkled with silver glints create a fine persistent stream. The nose is rich and elegant and reveals delicate aromas of white fruit and apricot. As the wine warms in the glass, it exudes scents of white nectarines and quince jelly mingled with brioche and pastry fragrances. Delicate, subtle palate with a balanced, opulent and creamy structure with dried fruit flavours.

Food Matches

A pure delight of a Champagne to be enjoyed by itself or as an aperitif with canapes. It is also the undisputed partner of rich dishes such as chicken supreme with chanterelle mushrooms or lobster.
