Pol Roger “White Foil” is traditionally a blend of equal parts ofPinot Noir (body and depth), Pinot Meunier (freshness and vigorous fruit) and Chardonnay (elegance and finesse) and is sourced exclusively from juice from the “cuvee” (first pressing). All the know-how of Pol Roger is revealed in its ability to reproduce each year a blend which is consistent in style and in quality.

History of Pol Roger
Distinction and elegance. Established in 1849, Pol Roger is the “Gentlemen’s Champagne, as Jean Paul Kauffman wrote in ‘Voyage en Champagne”. It is not surprising therefore the British Royal family should have made it their favourite over the years. The winery and cellars are located on the celebrated and noble Avenue de Champagne in Epernay, in the very place where the heart of Champagne beats. The purity and nobility of Champagne Pol Roger is also the fruit of know-how passed down from generation to generation. From the harvest in the region’s best vineyards to the painstaking work in the cellar, each gesture has its importance.
