Jesmond Dene House has just introduced Pol Roger as its house champagne in the restaurant.

To celebrate and introduce the champagne to diners, the hotel is holding a special dinner on June 13 hosted by the firm’s associate director, Jonathan Smailes.

The £95 a head Dinner with Champagne Pol Roger will include a four course meal featuring wild garlic risotto served with Pol Roger Pure NV; confit salmon with garden herbs accompanied by Pol Roger Vintage Rose 2004; spring lamb cutlet, lamb navarin, minted fresh peas and fondant potato with Pol Roger Cuvee Sir Winston Churchill 2000 and garden rhubarb Pavlova and vanilla ice cream complemented by Pol Roger Rich NV. To finish there will be coffee and petits fours.

The house of Pol Roger is among the longest-established and traditional family enterprises in France’s Champagne region. Originally founded in January 1849 in the town of Aÿ by the 18 year old Pol Roger, it was in 1851 that the company moved to its current base in Èpernay.
