Pol Roger is one of the big names in champagne: 160 years of history, a symbol of style and elegance. The first bottles date back to 1849, when Pol Roger, son of a notary of Ay, in financial crisis for the sudden illness of his father, he invents winemaker to try to revive the fortunes of the family. In 1851 the maison was transferred to Epernay, the capital of Champagne, and by the end of the century it had now acquired a worldwide reputation. The sons of Pol, in honor of the great paternal inheritance and the name of the maison, change their surname from ‘Roger’ to ‘Pol Roger’. The Pol Roger fashion house has always had an eye on the world and the Anglo-Saxon market, specializing right from the start in the production of Brut, the most loved dosage by the English. Winston Churchill is in love with Pol Roger champagne and, on his death, to pay tribute to the statesman, the house sold the bottles with a black band as a sign of mourning. In more recent times Queen Elizabeth wanted that the marriage between William and Kate, the wedding of the century, was served only with Pol Roger brand champagne. Despite having achieved an undisputed world fame and unrivaled prestige, the maison has maintained a family management, so much so as to be defined as the smallest of the great champagne houses. The range of bottles produced, recently expanded to meet new market needs, revolves around the classic Brut Reserve, the great representative of the maison, symbol of style and elegance.
