White Foil Brut Champagne NV

Grapes Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier
Colour White
Origin France, Champagne
ABV 12.5%

One of the great classics, this is another firm favourite of ours and consistently very high in quality. It's not just us that love it - at the last three Royal Weddings its Pol that has been popping to help the celebrations, and famously Winston Churchill had a real passion for Pol (a pint a day some say!?). It is no surprise to us though as 'White Foil' - as its fondly known - never fails to satisfy. This cuv茅e is the definitive house-style and makes for the perfect aperitif. It is made of equal portions of the three Champagne grape varieties Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier, time and attention to detail are the keys here. This is traditionally composed from 30 still 'base wines' and a blend drawn from at least three different vintages, all adding complexity and sophistication to this perennial winner. Drinking range: 2017 - 2021 L&S (Dec 2017)

Interesting, putty nose 鈥 very distinctive. And this doesn鈥檛 seem particularly sweet, perhaps because there is so much else going on. Well done! Rating: 16 Jancis Robinson OBE MW - www.JancisRobinson.com (Jul 2019)

Pol Roger鈥檚 white label is always elegant; now it is also glittering. The house has been increasing its vineyard sites in prime areas and is now 50 per cent self-sufficient in grapes. A blend of all three champagne grapes. Victoria Moore, The Daily Telegraph (Nov 2016)

Fortunately this ultra-stylish NV Brut Champagne from Pol Roger is widely available, so it's worth looking out for current special offers for a fizz that's consistently one of the best non-vintage cuv茅es around, here showing a fine nose of subtle biscuity richness and a precision of pure ripe fruit enveloped in a finely textured mousse that subtly implodes on the tongue and hangs on in there for a long, stylish dry finish.

Champagne Pol Roger

Champagne Pol Roger is one of the very few remaining houses still owned and run by the founding family, who remain responsible for the winemaking and selection of the cuv茅es each year.
Originally founded in A每 in 1849 by Pol Roger, the firm then moved to 脡pernay in 1851. The First World War had a huge impact on the firm, putting any expansion plans to rest, and Prohibition in America made exports much more difficult.
During the Second World War when the Germans occupied France, all production and buying of Champagne was controlled by the Wehrmacht.
However, the War caused Winston Churchill to become a prominent figurehead throughout the world, and his love of Pol Roger was widely known. So much so that the House created their special Cuv茅e Winston Churchill in 1975.
