What to expect


This is a Pure of contrasts, juxtaposing the tension and structure of lemon zest and grapefruit with rich and full layers of toast, roast brazil nuts and anise. A shard of taut acidity meets expressive fine, salt-rich chalk minerality, and fine-ground phenolic presence, holding the finish in bone-dry tension, finding harmony thanks to the softening influence of lees age. It’s a finely honed, oyster-ready apéritif.

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.
