Pol Roger Champagne
Pol Roger Champagne is a favourite Champagne among many British Army Regiments and of Sir Winston Churchill. Pol Roger was founded in 1849 and the brand is still owned and run by the descendants of Pol Roger.
Pol Roger was born on December 24, 1831, the son of a lawyer. He started his own Champagne House in 1849, with the first growths released in 1853. Based around the town of Epernay in the Champagne region, the House annually releases non-vintage cuvées, the Pure Brut (no added sugar), Brut Réserve as well as three other vintage wines, the Brut Vintage, Blanc de Blanc and Rosé Vintage and the house’s prestige label, the Vintage Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill.
'If I were to choose just one House from which to source a vintage Champagne to lay down, there is no question that I would choose Pol Roger'. Tom Stevenson.
WINSTON CHURCHILL'S FAVOURITE
Champagne Pol Roger and Sir Winston Churchill's relationship dates back to a providential meeting at a luncheon given by the British Ambassador to France after the liberation of Paris. Attending was the 1928 Pol Roger and the beautiful Odette Pol-Roger as well as the Prime Minister, Winston Churchill. A friendship was born which continued until Churchill’s death, yet links between the Pol-Roger and Churchill families are still as strong to this day.
