Pommery Cuvee Louise 2004 75cl
New Release. Price £145.00.
Created as a tribute to Louise Pommery, Cuvée Louise is an absolutely pure wine which quintessentially conveys the wine-making expertise of the Pommery Champagne house.
It presents itself to the eye with a nice colour and a rare elegance, where the yellow has some subtle greeny touches peeping through, providing it with a wonderful appearance of youth. The effervescenceis deployed in a universe of bubbles with an extreme fineness, whichlinger on the surface before they disappear.
On the nose it releases a quantity of unsuspected fragrances, where everything is well ordered and harmonious. It is rich, generous and silky, allowing for some notes of biscuits, resulting from the effect of the yeasts. It is extended by spicy touches, embellished by floral notes but also fresh fruit with white flesh, like greengage.
The mouth is only the infinite extension of everything the nose was able to reveal. It enhances the olfactory sensations, all in a perfect harmony in C major. Vividness remains whilst being blended with nice flavours of hazelnut butter, yeasts and almond paste. The final has a length which is close to the infinite, highlighting the fineness, purity and nobility of this wine, made to be loved.
The listed and sign-posted Cuvée Louise estates receive regular attention throughout the year. The Avize and Cramant Chardonnay grape and Ay Pinot Noir grape have particularly high sugar content.
Thierry Gasco’s Expertise:
Respecting the Wine’s Character:
Finally, a dosage is added. This dosage comprises Avize vintages to fully preserve the wine’s character. Pommery ensures that each bottle of Cuvée Louise is stored in a cellar for a further six months to restore the champagne’s natural balance.
Background Information :
Madame Pommery created the first successfully marketed Brut Champagne ‘Pommery Nature 1874’ at a time when most Champagnes were excessively sweetened by sugar. This set the benchmark for the rest of Champagne and it is in this spirit that the style of Pommery endures; with each unique cuvée displaying elegance, finesse and true class.
