What to expect


Bright, sweet-scented nose leaning toward citrus and pear. The palate is uplifting, juicy and follows on from the nose with the addition of yellow fruit, rock melon and a herbal / wet stone character. The dosage (sugar addition) sits on the upper end at 10 g/L which creates for a more generous and mouth-filling style.

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. Summertime blanc de blancs are both delightful cuvees and would hold their own at a connoisseur's dinner party.

This could handle the aromatic and slightly sweeter style Thai green curry with chicken or prawn as it will pick up the citrus and tropical notes in the curry.
