Pol Roger Champagne Masterclass

One of the finest and most respected Champagne Houses, Pol Roger, own 87 hectares of prime vineyard sites spread across the Montagne de Reims, Vallée de la Marne, Vallée d'Epernay and the Côte des Blancs, and produces an array of fine sparkling wine for the most discerning palates.


Sir Winston Churchill had a lifelong 'attachment' to Pol Roger Champagne and insisted on enjoying the wine at the most dangerous and dark periods of wartime. He famously borrowed a slogan of Napoleon's to describe his passion for this supremely invigorating Champagne: "In defeat I need it, in victory I deserve it".


As a tribute to their most loyal client, through whose cellar it is estimated more than 500 cases of Pol Roger had passed in the last ten years of his life, Pol Roger introduced the Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill.  This ultra-premium cuvée reflects the rich, mature, full-bodied style of Pol Roger Champagne made before the Second World War, the style that Churchill preferred.


Join us for a spectacular evening of fine wine as we taste through 10 Champagnes from Pol Roger and discover the intricacies of this superb producer.
