Founded in 1849 by Monsieur Pol Roger, today the firm is still family owned and run by Christian de Billy and his son Hubert and their cousin Christian Pol Roger. Pol Roger own some 70 hectares in both the Côte de Blancs and Vallée de la Marne which supply 50% of their needs and their Champagne is consistently in the top half dozen in terms of quality. They have over 7 kilometres of cellars some are 33 metres below street level, amongst the deepest in the region.
The 2004 Brut Vintage from Champagne Pol Roger is made from the traditional house vintage blend of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay from 20 Grands and Premiers crus vineyards in the “Montagne de Reims” and the “Côte des Blancs”. Pol Roger does not own the vineyards itself but buys in grapes from growers it has come to trust and respect over the years. Produced only in limited quantities the Brut Vintage 2004 has been aged for 8 years in cellars before being disgorged and released onto the market. For its other cuvées Pol Roger owns close to 50% of the vineyards used for their Champagne production, which is increasingly rare for such a large scale Champagne house.
