All the know-how of our firm is revealed in its ability to reproduce each year a blend which is consistent in style and in quality. Elegant and refined, the cuvée Brut Réserve is the champagne of all occasions.The Brut Réserve is a blend in equal parts of the three champenois grape varieties: pinot noir, pinot meunier and chardonnay from 30 different
crus. 25% reserve wines are used to produce this cuvée:
- The Pinot Noir (bringing structure, body and power) is mainly produced from some of the best crus of the Montagne de Reims.
- The Pinot Meunier (ensuring freshness, roundness and fruitiness) is issued from several crus from the Vallée de la Marne and from the Epernay area.
- The Chardonnay (adding its aromatic complexity, finesse, elegance and lightness) comes from Epernay and some of the best crus of the Côte des Blancs.
After four years ageing in our cellars, its style combines complexity, balance and distinction.
Pol Roger Brut Réserve diplays a beautiful golden straw coloured hue, as well as abundant and fine bubbles. With a powerful and attractive nose, it first delivers aromas of fruit (pear, mango ...) and then releases light flavours of honeysuckle and white jasmine, lingering on vanilla and brioche notes. Behind a frank and dynamic attack, the wine encompasses a nice harmony and a pleasant freshness, whilst preserving some structure. On the palate, flavours of cooked fruit (quince jelly, apricot jam) happily mingle with fragrances of beeswax and acacia honey. The long-lasting aromas, composed of both fruity (candied orange peel, tangerine...) and spicy notes (cardamom, anis) is outstanding.
Founded by Pol Roger in 1849 and succeeded by his sons, Maurice and Georges. Fourth generation Christian Pol Roger and Cristian de Billy were succeeded by Hubert de Billy in 2013. The house now owns around 92 hectares, mostly around Epernay including Grand Crus Cremant, Chouilly and Avize on the Côtes de Blancs and Ambonnay, Bouzy & Verzy on the Montagne de Reims. Generally Pinot dominant, the collection of wines from the Non-Vintage Cuvees through to the stellar Cuvee Sir Winston Churchill show consistency of house style and a pedigree that is the envy of many other grand marques.
