Pol Roger White Foil Non Vintage Champagne
Pol Roger was born on Christmas Eve in 1831, the first son of Pierre Charles Jean Baptiste Roger, a lawyer based in Ay. Pol chose not to follow his fathers footsteps, but received his support when he announced that he wanted to set up as a negociant or wholesaler. This he did at the age of seventeen using his fathers business contacts as customers.
1849 saw the birth of the new Champagne house as Pol began to create his own cuvees rather than bringing in wine from other houses. The first Pol Roger Cuvees went on sale in 1853 and his sales in the first six months were 3769 bottles and 825 half bottles. Today that has grown to around 1.5 million per annum.
Pol Roger recently celebrated its 150th anniversary and is perhaps best known as Winston Churchills favourite Champagne. The house is still family owned and has a reputation for producing champagnes of great finesse and elegance which age very well.
Pol Roger White Foil Non Vintage Champagne is an harmonious and very consistent blend of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier (about one third each) and is never sold until the youngest component has achieved three years of age. Pol Roger White Foil Non Vintage Champagne is a champagne thats feminine but fruity in its youth while the Pinot Noir makes for a firmer, more structured, fuller wine with age.
