Professional Reviews For This Wine


Richard Juhlin | Rating: 94

Christian Pol-Roger refuses to reveal the grape content after making a promise to the Churchill family. However, I think my guess of 70 percent Pinot Noir and the rest Chardonnay is close to the truth. The wine is made mainly from the firm's own grand cru vineyards. This is the wine from Pol Roger that needs the longest storage. The '86 is hard and young, but has a great richness of extracts and a high concentration. As usual, better in a magnum.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 88

Flavorful yet dry, with lean citrus accents, lively acidity and a crisp, almost austere finish. Still has a great mouthfilling mousse after all these years on the yeast.

Wine Varietal: Champagne Blend


Three major varieties are used in a Champagne Blend: Chardonnay, which provides a smooth, creamy texture and Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, which provide depth and backbone. Most Champagne is non-vintage (NV), produced with grapes from several different vintages. Vintage Champagnes are made in exceptional years and must contain 80% grapes from that year. Champagne, France is the only region permitted to put "Champagne" on the label.

Blanc de Blancs: Meaning "white of white," blanc de blancs Champagne is 100% Chardonnay.

Blanc de Noirs: Meaning "white of red," is 100% Pinot Noir or a Pinot Noir/Pinot Meunier blend.

Rose Champagne: A small amount of still red wine is added during the blending process, creating a rose hue.
