Winemaker's Notes:

Cuvee Louise 1999 comes in her customary yellow dress with almost golden nuances, proof of the great maturity of the grapes from which she was crafted. Numerous aromas are unleashed in various registers ranging from mature red berries, over notes of beeswax and freshly dried acacia to flourishes of quince pate, all of them set off by a flourish of minerality that imbues this Louise with generosity and roundness.

On the palate, the overall sensation is clear and without artifice. This champagne encompasses the freshness and finesse of silk enhanced by the reassuring warmth of velvet.

About Champagne Pommery:

Pommery has always been avant-garde, but moderness would mean nothing without tradition. Tradition and savoir-faire, the art of blending just the right mixture of crus to create a champagne that is luminous, light, tender and lively. Such is the legacy handed down by Madame Pommery from generation to generation. It is all part of the Pommery style - natural elegance.
