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 Pinot 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.

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'. The design pays homage to, and unites, two of Churchill's great passions; painting and Champagne Pol Roger. The gift box is a limited edition.

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.
