What to expect


A step up from the Brut Royale, the Apanage is majority pinots being 30% pinot noir and 25% meunier with the remainder 45% chardonnay. The main difference between the Brut Royale and this beautifully crafted Apanage is a longer time on lees, 3.5 years and over 20 cru (Villages), which are mainly grand cru and premier cru sites. The dosage sits between 8-9 g/l residual sugar. As with all Pommery wine making, full malolactic fermentation is encouraged as is the use of stainless steel.

The style here is rich, flavourful with biscuit, toast and swirls of red apple, ripe citrus fruit and some ginger biscuit spice. It's a wine that hits well above its weight and delivers layer upon layer of flavour. Treat yourself to a great champagne.

Food Suggestions

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 Champagne Estate. With sheer perseverance, a generous sense of spirit and a pioneering mindset, Madame Pommery challenged the ideas of champagne production and changed the business forever by creating the first brut (dry) champagne. Wine maker Thierry Gasco is doing a great job to not only nail the consistency and quality of their flagship Brut Royale but take a step up the champagne ladder with Pommery to see their real skill. Springtime Rose and Summertime Blanc de Blancs are both delightful cuvees and would hold their own at a connoisseur's dinner party.

Food Suggestions


Serve this well-crafted champagne as an aperitif with a plate of French cheese and some pancetta.
