Now over 50 years old, this venerable wine demonstrates the incredible potential for high quality Champagne to age. The black bordering on the label marks the death of Sir Winston Churchill, Pol Roger's greatest admirer, for whom this was the last harvest. 

Information About Pol Roger

Champagne Pol Roger was founded in 1849 and now owns 87 hectares of vineyards on prime sites in the Vallée d'Epernay and on the Côte des Blancs. Its cellars run for 7km and are on three levels, the deepest known as the ‘cave de prise de mousse' at 33m below street level. As the name suggests this is where the wine undergoes its secondary fermentation in bottle. The fact that this deep cellar is at 9o or less, rather than a normal cellar temperature of 11-12o, thus prolonging this fermentation, is one contributing factor to the quality and particular style of the wines and their famously fine bubbles.

The Pol Roger range starts with three non-vintage champagnes: Brut Réserve NV, Pure NV and Rich NV which are images of the Brut Réserve, the Rich with a slightly higher dosage and the Pure, at the other end of the scale, being sans dosage. The rest of the champagnes are vintage-dated taking in Brut Vintage, Brut Rosé and Blanc de Blancs as well as the Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill.

Tasting Date : 26 April 2014

This ancient, classically labelled, unflashy bottle carried a wealth of information. There was a seal applied by Berry Bros, the wine was especially for the British market, and the label had a black border in commemoration of Pol Roger's most famous enthusiast, Sir Winston Churchill, who had died in 1965 (this bottle would not have been labelled until well into the 1970s). The wine was a pale toast colour and was still reasonably fizzy. It was certainly quite rich; I would imagine the dosage was a lot higher than it would be today. This was a hugely satisfying and impressively lively wine and a triumph of ageing - a good start.
