What to expect


The white foiled staple of many an ex-British PM is in terrific shape, showing a completeness, richness and freshness that makes champagne really compelling. The blend draws in all three champagne grapes - chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot meunier - making a complex toast and berry impression on the nose. The palate has plenty of rich red fruit flavour, finishing with chalky, dry resolve. Superb.

Nick Stock

Technical details:

One third of each of the varieties, with extended ageing in the cellar due to the larger format. Usually the 750ml is aged for four and half years. The jeroboam would be aged significantly longer at around 7-8 years as an estimate.

Food pairing

If it is good enough for her Majesty the Queen to drink every evening, then this it is good enough for us. Pol Roger is of the few champagne houses that have rightfully earned the British coat of arms to adorn every bottle and after all, it’s not just a favourite with the Royal Family but most of Britain, who know good champagne from the average. This medium-sized, family owned treasure of the Champagne region is the epitome of quality and consistency. With deep cool cellars, this maison leaves their cuvées ageing for far longer than most of their counterparts allowing the development of very fine and tiny bubbles. This creates a silky texture on the palate with subtle toasty notes that are the hallmark of excellent champagne. If ever in doubt, buy Pol Roger.
