The Story

"Damas, we need a wine that is as dry as possible, but without rigidity... It should be soft and velvety on the palate... Above all, make sure it has finesse’. This bold request, at a time when sweeter tastes were favoured, was met in 1874, when Victor Lambert, the successor to Pommery's Cellar Director Olivier Damas, created the first vintage brut in the history of Champagne, Pommery Nature 1874.

It was a revolution in Champagne. It was met with sarcasm and disbelief. But it was an unprecedented success. Under Madame Pommery's impetus, the Pommery style became known as ‘full of finesse and cheery lightness’. It can be tasted today in the Brut Royal and Cuvée Louise. It is always different, ever unique after slow ageing in the shadows of the chalk cellars.

Written Notes

There was actually one more wine to be served on this starry night, a jeroboam of 1961 Pommery, thanks to you know who. Champagne tends to be my preferred drink of choice before, during and after dinner, and it fit right in the lineup as the closer, served on the patio as the cigar smoke proceeded to permeate the air. It was delicious, with sweet fruit and just the right amount of bubbles left. Smiles were already on everyone's faces, but this glorious, aged Champagne kept them permanently in place (95J).
