History of Pol Roger

Pol Roger made his first sale of wine in January 1849.The firm developed rapidly. From Aÿ, it moved to Epernay in 1851. As early as 1855, Pol began to favor production of brut Champagne. He knew that this was the type of Champagne which the English preferred. By 1899, when its founder died, the brand has acquired an enviable amount of recognition.

On 23rd February 1900, a disaster occurred: Part of the cellars and the buildings collapsed. Five hundred casks and one and a half million bottles were lost. By this time, Pol Roger's sons, Maurice and Georges, were in charge of the firm. A show of solidarity together with brothers determination enabled the firm to overcome this catastrophe.

The emblematic figure of Winston Churchill left his mark on the post-war period. This British statesman was an unwavering client of the Maison Pol Roger: "The most delightful address in the world", he declared. It was in 1955 that a general improvement in sales could be felt. The range of wines was enlarged, and this gave an additional impetus to the development of Pol Roger's fame. In 1961, a vintage rosé was launched. A few years later, a special vintage was born, the Cuvée Winston Churchill was born in 1975. At the same time, the firm developed and reached 201 acres in 1999. The previous year, the United States had become the biggest export market.

The millenium came and The firm adopted a more aggressive sales strategy, with new importers representing the brand in Belgium, Switzerland, Italy, Germany and Australia. Significant changes were made in the winery, which underwent complete renovation, in a constant quest for better quality. The enlargement of the premises and the installation of new stainless steel vats was completed in 2004. 2001 saw the launching of a new cuvée called “Rich”, which is almost a demi-sec. In that same year, the logo and the bottle were redesigned in order to bring more elegance and distinction. In 2007 the house launched the cuvée “Pure”, Extra Brut, to offer new another style to the range.

In July 2013 Laurent d’Harcourt succeeded Patrice Noyelle and takes over the position of President of the Board of Directors. Laurent joined Pol Roger in 2006 as an Export Director, to replace Christian Pol-Roger, and was appointed to the Board of Directors in June 2008. Laurent d’Harcourt and Hubert de Billy (member of the Board of Directors) are supported by an experienced management team: Dominique Petit (Cellar Master), Evelyne de Billy (Vineyard Manager), Isabelle Gautier (Financial Director) and Hugues Romagnan (Export Director).
