Pommery Apanage Blanc de Blancs is the result of a meticulous and confidential selection of magnificent terroirs. A common denominator of these soils: campanian chalk, declined according to different exposures and depths. The chardonnays of côte des Blancs provide the main support for this cuvée and ensure its great elegance. On this solid basis, the northern terroirs of the Montagne de Reims and the hills of Nogent l’Abbesse contribute liveliness, structure and complexity. It is the harmonious association of these great terroirs which allows this cuvée to express an astounding freshness and a maturity worthy of an Apanage.

As every Apanage, a prolonged ageing in the cellars provides this cuvée with the elegance and complexity which characterise it. This is an indispensable stage and one has to be patient to have all the subtleties of this assemblage revealed.

Tasting notes:  The attack is open, without detour, as a sign of a very great assemblage. The elegance and freshness revealed on the nose can be found back on the palate. The heart of the tasting is of an exemplary righteousness. The aromas of citrus fruits and white fruits (fresh apple) take over. The balance of the final is perfectly revealing the subtle flavor of yellow grapefruit. 

This cuvée is normally reserved to the most prestigious restaurants & hotels. 

 

One of the Grand Marques of Champagne and rightly so. Madame Louise Pommery took over the small family vineyard at a young age after the unfortunate passing of her husband left her with a young child and an even more immature business in the Pommery & Greno Estate. Louise was an early #GirlPower pioneer, not only because she ran a business at a time when men dominated just about everything, but because she came up with a number of groundbreaking ideas, including storing wines in temperature controlled caves and producing the first Brut (dry) Champagne. When she passed at 71 years, she was the first woman to be given a state funeral in France.

The aperitif will be a privileged moment to appreciate this wine but a Baerii caviar, a tartare of gilt head bream with citrus fruits or a carpaccio of scallops with green lemon will reveal other facets of this cuvée.
