Pol Roger is perhaps best known as Winston Churchill's favourite Champagne. The house remains family-owned and has a reputation for producing champagnes of finesse and elegance which age very well. Pol Roger Brut Rèserve Non-Vintage, made from equal parts of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, is consistently one of the very best on the market, largely due to the high proportion of aged reserve wines in the blend. Pol Roger vintage wines, made from at least 60% Pinot Noir and up to 40% Chardonnay, are soft and fruit-driven in youth but, after ten years or so, develop great complexity and finesse. The Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill, launched in 1984 and made from a secret blend, is a Champagne of exquisite finesse and balance and one that rivals the very best of the region.

Pol Roger Brut NV has a truly wide appeal and is perfect for lovers of exuberantly-styled Champagnes. Feminine and fruity in its youth, it takes on a fuller flavour with age. Made from 33% Chardonnay, 34% Pinot Noir and 33% Pinot Meunier with the added reserve wines especially selected to achieve the requisite elegance, balance and harmony. It’s perfect for the cellar as well as current drinking, which is an excellent reason to buy more than one case!

Low or Zero Dosage Champagnes are very modish at the moment, but can be extremely difficult to get right, the region’s historical infatuation with sugar being as a result of climatic obligation rather than any whimsical pursuit of pleasure. So to make a wine with no sugar and to entitle it Pure,is courageous indeed. Pol Roger, it should come as no great surprise to learn, have risen to their own challenge, and have done so with considerable aplomb.
The key seems to be to stick with the winning formula, in terms of grape varieties, namely a third each of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, but to select from specific (perhaps warmer) vineyards and to age for a little longer thereby engendering a natural softening. Spicy, with notes of crushed apple, broiche and peach stones, this is a very successful wine, suitably cerebral, one must surmise, to accompany any lively debate over a plate of 12 (or even possibly) 18 Fine de Claire Oysters.

Sharing some of the hallmarks of the superb 2002 at a similar stage – namely its tightly coiled, lemon freshness, this has added breadth and complexity. A classic Pol vintage blend – 60% Pinot Noir with 40% Chardonnay. There is a real depth and power lurking, with gingerbread, brioche, red and orchard fruit on the palate tapering into a finish of extraordinary length. This definitely needs at least a couple of years in the cellar to unlock the hidden complexity. Whisper it quietly, but I think this could turn out to be better than the 2002.
