Widely recognized not only for his incredible statesmanship and leadership, Sir Winston Churchill was a professed lover of Champagne. His favorite of which was Pol Roger. Spanning 150 years and 5 generations, the House of Pol Roger dates to 1849; when, to support his family after his father had taken ill and was forced to close his Notary business,  18 year old Pol Roger began selling wine in Ay. Eventually the family and the winemaking business were relocated to Epernay in 1851.

Despite a catastrophic collapse of the cellars in February of 1900, the Roger family has continually produced wines celebrated for their finesse and elegance.  The current generation of the Roger family maintains the traditional dedication of excellence and independence, via a rigorous selection of winegrowers and a careful attention to detail. The cellars in use today have two levels, and the cooler temperatures of the lower slow the secondary fermentation. Coupled with extended aging and extensive use of reserve wines in their blending process, the wines of Pol Roger have a very fine bubble as well as a complex and concentrated aromatic bouquet.
