Champagne Pol Roger is delighted that the Pol Roger Brut Reserve Non Vintage was served at the reception at Windsor Castle following the wedding of His Royal Highness Prince Harry of Wales to Ms. Meghan Markle on 19th May 2018.
Pol Roger and the Royal Warrant
Pol Roger, founded its House in 1849 in Aÿ, its native village. For the next 50 years and until his death in 1899, he carved out one of the most flattering reputations in the select circle of the leading champagne brands. Export sales developed rapidly, especially in England where the dry style is preferred. After almost 170 years, Pol Roger is proud to have remained fiercely independent and unrivaled in its reputation for quality by handcrafting champagnes internationally acclaimed by lovers of fine wines.
The Royal Warrant to supply champagne came in 1877... Any Royal Warrant may only be granted if a business has supplied goods and services to the Royal Household for at least five years...
Considering Pol Roger is very often referred to as “the most British of champagnes”, being granted the Royal Warrant is both very consistent with who we are and the utmost privilege the House could ask for. Let’s not forget that the very first bottle of Pol Roger was not sold in France but on the other side of the Channel! Were it only for historical reasons, Pol Roger’s fate was to be linked with the UK. And Sir Winston Churchill himself would not disagree!

What the press are saying...
92 Points - James Suckling
Pol Roger's NV offering is looking fresh with gently biscuity aromas and peach and nectarine fruits. The palate offers plenty of flesh in an attractive, easygoing style. Bright and pleasing.
92 Points - Wine Spectator
An elegant Champagne, with a smoky, minerally underpinning and subtle flavors of poached pear, toast, candied lemon zest and ginger riding the finely detailed bead. Harmonious, and hard to stop sipping.
90 Points - Burghound
There is plenty of citrus character present on the green apple, floral and discreet spice wisps. There is good verve to the delicious and relatively rich medium weight flavors that are shaped by a moderately firm if not especially refined mousse, all wrapped in a clean, dry and notably complex finish that is definitely drier than the stated level of dosage would suggest.
