Producer Note

Pol Roger is one of the few remaining great family-owned Champagne houses. An unrivalled reputation within the trade has been guaranteed by the consistent excellence of the wines: a tribute to the incredible diligence of the selection of the cuvées directed by members of the Pol Roger and de Billy families, in conjunction with the Président du Directoire Laurent d’Harcourt and the Chef des Caves, Dominique Petit. With stock equivalent to five years normal sales, a major investment programme, and among the coolest and deepest cellars in Epernay, the Pol Roger range of Champagnes offers a glimpse of the sublime.


The 2009 Brut Vintage from Champagne Pol Roger is made from the traditional house vintage blend of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay from 20 Grands and Premiers crus vineyards in the Montagne de Reims and the Côte des Blancs.


The must underwent two settlings, known as débourbages, the first after pressing and the second was a cold settling in stainless steel tanks at 6°C lasting 24 hours. A slow, cool fermentation at under 18°C took place in stainless steel, with each variety and each village kept separately until final blending. The wine underwent a full malolactic fermentation. Secondary fermentation took place in the bottle at 9°C in the deepest Pol Roger cellars which lie at 33 metres below street level. The wine was kept here until it underwent the process of riddling by hand, something of a rarity nowadays in Champagne. The 2008 vintage has been matured for eight years in these cellars.

Tasting Note

Delicate pale lemon in colour, the nose is opulent in its youth displaying ripe stone fruits on the nose, candied lemon peel and grapefruit. A creamy texture on the palate with a refreshing backbone of acidity leads to persistence of length and character on the finish.

Serving Suggestion

A delightful apéritif or enjoy with foie gras on toasted brioche fingers.
