The Pol Roger estate is located in the heart of the Champagne region, in Epernay, where the Roger family began making their exceptional Champagne 150 years ago. Elegance and excellence are signature characteristics of the Pol Roger Champagne style. It is no wonder that Pol Roger was the favorite Champagne of Sir Winston Churchill and has long been the choice of British aristocracy.
A golden yellow straw-like color, bright and full of intensity with attractive lingering bubbles. A fine nose with enticing notes of fresh honey, candied grapefruit and lime. On the palate a dominating fruitiness with light biscuit character. A full and long texture displaying freshness and viscosity. The wine is balanced with remarkable harmony. An amazingly pure champagne. -Winemaker’s Notes
Wine Spectactor (WS)
This balanced Champagne shows a lovely creaminess, offering a mix of crème de cassis, pastry dough and preserved lemon flavors. Fresh, with light minerality on the open-knit finish. Drink now through 2025. 4,000 cases made.
Wine Advocate (WA)
The 2009 Brut Vintage blends 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay from 20 grand and premier cru villages in the Montagne de Reims and the Côte des Blancs. Fermented in stainless steel with each variety and each village kept separate and malolactic completed, the 2009 aged eight years in the cellars before being hand-riddled and disgorged. Disgorged in October 2017 and tasted in June 2018, the 2009 shows an intense, concentrated, pretty vinous and profound bouquet of ripe fruit, chalk, brioche and nutty/almond notes. Full-bodied and rich but fresh and even refined on the palate, this is a very elegant, round, charming yet well-structured and vinous Vintage Brut with a clear, fresh, structured and remarkably persistent finish. It drinks already very well today, but its aging potential is most probably stunning. – Stephan Reinhardt – 29-06-2018
Wine Enthusiast (WE)
The latest vintage release from this producer, this is beautifully balanced with white fruits and touches of citrus paralleled by a tight mineral texture and acidity. It is still young, because vintages from this producer age for many years. Drink from 2020.

A fullish style with savory aromas of almond cream, nougat and grilled hazelnuts, as well as dried lemon and pastry. The palate is smoothly arranged with layers of savory, lees-fueled pastry flavors. Drink or hold.
