At Pol Roger, they like large formats; not only because they look far better but also because the champagne tends to mature more slowly. A slower maturation process means that the wine develops more complexity over a longer period of time.

The Beast dinner gives you a chance to taste a number of cuvees from three different large formats; magnum, jeroboam and methuselah, and in a suitably spectacular setting.
