This famous brand began in 1849 with the move of Pol Roger from Ay to Epernay. Very early on, the house began to export to England. She became the favourite of Winston Churchill, who knew all the more about Champagne as Pol Roger produced famous ones who age admirably. At the time, Champagnes were based on Pinot Noir ; besides, the great man hardly liked chardonnay.
With the acquisition of a vineyard in the Côte des Blancs in the mid-1950s, current Champagnes take advantage of the elegance of Chardonnay . After a slight hesitation between 1986 and 1995 when he was very light, Pol Roger regained great form. Long reserved for the English market, the dense Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill pays homage to the great man with a vinous Champagne as he loved it so much. The 1999 vintage respects its spirit to the letter. Heir to a fine lineage, pure chardonnay is the house's other sure bet with a beautiful 2000 which marks the house's return to the highest level. Lovers of dry champagne will look with interest the Rich cuvée, certainly one of the best in the field.
