Madame Pommery had two words to describe her champagne: cheerful lightness. Taking it one step further, Pommery stands for delicacy and vivacity, heart and spirit, a style made of finesse whose musical score highlights the elegance of aromas before their power. It is a style full of freshness, with notes that come together like a witty dialogue, remaining on the palate with tender flavours. ’
Thierry Gasco, 9th Pommery Cellar Director.
- The grapes are pressed in traditional presses that contain 4,000 kg of grapes, from which 2,550 litres of juice are extracted.
- Initial alcoholic fermentation turns the grape juice contained in the vats into wine, under the action of selected yeasts.
- Several wines made from different varietals, different crus, or different vintages, are blended to create and perpetuate the Pommery style.
Chill your bottle in a bucket filled with water and ice for thirty minutes, or place at the bottom of the refrigerator in a horizontal position for four hours.
Serve chilled, not cold, at 7- 8° C, opening the bottle as follows:
• hold the bottle with one hand and undo the wire cage with the other hand,
• tilt the bottle slightly and turn it, while holding firmly onto the cork,
• pull gently on the cork to keep it from popping out violently.
• fill the glasses halfway so that the wine’s aroma can be fully appreciated.
