Pol Roger - The Champagne fit for royals

Pol Roger - Champagne fit for royals

The famous french Pol Roger champagne brand that calls the fruitful grounds of the vast green Champagne valley its home, stands out as one of the best champagne brands in the world. Located in the very heart of Epernay, the exquisite Pol Roger champagne is waiting to be tasted and brought to daylight from one of the longest wine cellars running beneath the Avenue de Champagne. 

Pol Roger champagne has kept the family run business a true success story from the vineyards in France for over five generations. The Pol Roger family has remained loyal to the tradition of champagne making and strategy that has been initiated from the very beginning by the Pol Roger founders who have established the Pol Roger champagne brand in 1849. With that being said, the Pol Roger champagne remains one of the rare few champagne houses and brands in the world, which is still run independently by the descendants of Pol Roger.  

Pol Roger - a champagne with the Royal Warrant

Due to its harmonious taste and consistent blend, the word about Pol Roger began to spread across the channel and found its way to the United Kingdom in the 19th century. The famous french champagne Pol Roger became quite popular among the British people due to its high quality taste. And this is how the love affair between the Pol Roger champagn and the Brits began. We could easily say the rest is history, but the truth is this is where it actually all began to unfold for the Pol Roger champagn. The world about the exquisite Pol Roger knocked on the doors of the Royal palace in London. Pol Roger got its first Royal Warrant in 1877. Queen Victoria appointed Pol Roger as the royal champagne supplier in 1884. 

However, it wasn't until the late Sir Winston Churchill took his first sip of the Pol Roger champagne in 1908 at the Armistice Day Party in Paris, when the news about this exclusive champagne really began to spread across the world and began to gain a lot of traction among the masses, both those in high society circles and “mortals” alike. But the love for the famous french champagne Pol Roger among the British royal family didn't really stop there. Pol Roger champagne was later also honoured with the English Royal Seal. And what an honour for the Pol Roger champagne that really is. There are only nine champagne houses in the world that bear the honour of having the English Royal Seal. Pol Roger still holds and boasts itself with the Royal Warrant till this day and it is still known as the champagne of royalty as it boasts itself with the Royal Warrant, which in translation means Pol Roger champagne is the exclusive champagne brand that provides none other than Her royal Majesty Elizabeth II with all the champagne her British heart desires. It truly does not come as a surprise that the Pol Roger champagne is often referred to as  “the most British of champagnes”, despite the french origin of the Pol Roger champagne.

There probably isn't a bigger honour or seal of approval than the approval of the British royal family. Pol Roger Bollier was also one of the champagnes served at the royal wedding of Prince Charles and Diana. In 2011 the Pol Roger champagne received another royal wedding invitation in the mail as they were selected as the prized wedding champagne for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, also known to the masses as William and Kate. However, this wasn't Pol Roger champagne's last royal wedding attendance among the creme de la creme of the world. Alongside Pol Roger champagne being served at the royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton in 2011, the famous french champagne brand Pol Roger was also served at the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle (now known as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex) in 2018. The last royal wedding Pol Roger champagne attended was at the wedding reception of Princess Eugenie of York and Jack Brooksbank. Pol Roger was the champagne of choice for four royal weddings in succession. With these facts in mind, we could  easily say that Pol Roger is the champagne fit for royals.
