Just like the French aristocrat for whom it was named, Pol Roger is headstrong and arrogant. It never yields to other Champagnes in blind tasting competitions around the world and holds its own against any drinker thrown at it. Actors Harrison Ford and Kevin Costner are known fans of this fine bubbly, while many connoisseurs agree that Pol Roger has a more feminine taste than other Champagne brands because of its higher sugar content.
- Prices of Pol Roger champagne differ drastically, from £22.50 for the 375ml half bottle all the way up to £279.99 for the 3L Jeroboam, which comes encased in a wooden box.
- Pol Roger champagne was Winston Churchill's tipple of choice from as far back as 1908. Churchill and Roger even met one another during a lunch on November 12, 1945 and maintained a close friendship until Churchill's death in 1965. This bond is immortalised in many of the Pol Roger champagnes that can be found on The Bottle Club, including the Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill.
