The story of this Champagne House begins in 1849 with a young Pol Roger, who at just 18 years of age, made his maiden wine sale in the village of Aÿ, where he had spent his formative years. This pivotal step was driven by family circumstances; his father, a notary, faced an incurable illness that left him unable to continue his practice. Luckily, the growth of Pol’s enterprise was swift and his firm moved from Aÿ to Épernay. A turn came in 1855 when Pol decided to focus on producing Brut Champagne, a drier style that he knew would resonate with the discerning palates of the English. By the time Pol Roger succumbed to pneumonia in 1899, he had gained widespread recognition.

The house was taken over by Maurice and George Roger. In 1900, the brothers would gain permission to change their surname to Pol-Roger, in honour of their father. 2020 marked the introduction of the sixth generation to the family business, with Bastien Collard de Billy taking on the position of General Secretary and Export Manager, promising to continue the enduring legacy of Pol Roger.
