Pommery Grand Cru Vintage 2006

Vintage 2006

$139.95
Stone fruit aromas with a twist of lemon adding depth. Elegant and restrained, this is very fine, with the acid driving the palate. 

 

Technical details: Sourced from 7 Grand Cru villages around the Montagne de Reims and Côte des Blancs. 50% chardonnay 50% pinot noir with approximately 8-9 years ageing on lees. Sits at around 7g dosage.

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. 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.

 

Chef de Cave Clement Pierlot is doing a great job to not only nail the consistency and quality of their flagship Brut Royal but take a step up the champagne ladder with Pommery to see their real skill. Brut Apanage and Summertime Blanc de Blancs are both delightful cuvees and would hold their own at a connoisseur's dinner party.

For sheer decadence, drink this beauty with smoked salmon, caviar and crème fraiche on brioche toast.
