The Story

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.

Vintage 1982

One of the decade’s best vintages, which can be excellently enjoyed already now. The winter was cold and the spring cool. The cold weather moved the start of the growth season and enabled the vines to avoid spring frosts. The inflorescences, which bloomed in June, enjoyed perfect conditions. The warm and sunny weather continued through summer all the way until early September, when refreshing and needed rains arrived in the area. They saved the grapes from overmaturing. The result was an excellent vintage, which in addition to being high-quality was quantitatively one of the biggest harvests ever. The vintage was favorable especially for blanc de blancs. Stylistically, the wines are giving, heavy and rich in nuances. They are now at an excellent age, but can still endure maturing 5–7 years on the average.
