Description & Technical Information
-
Pol Roger was just nineteen when he founded his estate in 1849. Still a family-run enterprise, fifth generation Hubert de Billy is one of the descendants who manage the House today. With 92-hectares of vineyards supplying half of their grape requirements and illustrious premises containing immaculate facilities including pristinely polished stainless-steel tanks. Today they own 92 hectares of vineyards and its cellars in Epernay, just off the Avenue de Champagne run for 7.5 kms, 34 metres below the ground at a constant 9 Celsius.

Remarkably, a small team of less than ten complete everything in the cellar by hand and Pol Roger boast four of the region's remaining fifteen riddlers, who impressively turn over 60,000 bottles a day. Indeed, it is this style and their respect for tradition that initiated Sir Winston Churchill's lifelong attachment to Pol Roger, who famously insisted: "In defeat I need it, in victory I deserve it." Today, their prestige cuvée is named in honour of the great man.

Pol Roger Réserve NV has long been recognisable of the distinctive white foil closure, hence it is commonly referred to simply as 'White Foil'. A blend of all three grape varieties from thirty still base wines, White Foil is an often an assemblage of three or four different vintages. The Pinot Noir contributes body, depth of character and life-extending tannins and comes from the villages of the Montagne de Reims; the Chardonnay provides the lightness, elegance and finesse and is drawn from Épernay itself and the villages of the Côte des Blancs; and the Meunier supplies youthful freshness, vigour and plump character with the grapes coming from the Vallée d'Epernay. The bottle code indicates packaging date: the first digit denotes the year and the next three digits the day of that year.

The gift box design pays homage to, and unites, two of Churchill's great passions; painting and Champagne Pol Roger. Tess Costil of Auckland University of Technology, New Zealand, was crowned the winner of the Winston Churchill Design Competition 2019. Churchill described his enthusiasm for painting as taking a 'joyride in a paint box'; having discovered the joy of painting at the age of 40, he remained a prolific and dedicated artist for the rest of his life. Tess's design is based on one of his most famous paintings, 'The Goldfish Pool at Chartwell'.

Reserve Wine: 20-30%

Tasting Note: On the nose, the champagne is dominated by green apple and brioche. On the palate there is a certain nuttiness and a hint of honey supporting the freshness of the acidity. UK stock receives an additional 6 months post-disgorgement aging so it is ready to drink upon release but cellaring for a few years will reveal greater depths. Brut Réserve is the perfect apéritif champagne, never released until at least three years old.

Expert Reviews
92/100
William Kelley
“The current release of Pol Roger's NV Brut Réserve is quite dramatic, bursting with aromas of mandarin oil, honeycomb, elderflower, fresh bread and musky peach. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy and enveloping, it's generous and textural, with a rich core of fruit, lively acids and a pillowy mousse.”
91/100
Essi Avellan
“Pale lemon colour. Fresh and bright, the nose shows white flowers, yellow apple, quince, tangerine and apricot tart. A subtle spicy note backs the fruit up. It's perky and energetic on the fleshy yet structured palate, a balanced blend of the three key Champagne varieties from some 30 crus. There is fruity muscle to this wine, which rewards mid-term cellaring. Dosage 8g/l”
17/20
Richard Hemming
“Cooked apple, biscuit, savoury and long. Delicious salted-bread aftertaste. The absolute prototype of champagne, and I appreciate the generous dosage.”
92/100
Peter Moser
“Light greenish yellow, silver reflections, lively mousse. White fruit underlaid with biscuit, fresh farm apple, lemony nuances, a hint of peach and herbs. Full-bodied on the palate, ripe, discreet sweet fruit gives volume, pleasant acidity on the finish, will benefit from a few years of bottle ageing.”
Jeremy E
“I LOVE this champagne every time I have the pleasure of it passing my lips! But the pleasure starts long before actually tasting it when savouring the gorgeous fruity and exciting nose - I never waste this moment and always linger in the joy of smelling what I am about to enjoy. Each bottle is an investment in pleasure and enjoying every single sip of loveliness. Value for money is sky high on this one and Pol Roger Brut Reserve NV gives the best 'bang for your buck' than any drink I know! I'd rate this with 50 stars if I could. ”
SS
“I love the Pol Roger white top, and it makes a super gift in the box inspired by Winston Churchill’s iconic Goldfish painting”

    To celebrate the release of Pol Roger Brut Vintage 2008, we put it to the test in a blind vertical tasting of the last four vintages of Pol: 2002, 2004, 2006 and 2008. We also threw in the non-vintage for good measure.
