2005 Pommery Cuvee Louise in Gift Box

$214.95

Cuvée Louise was created in 1979 in honor to Louise, Madame Pommery’s daughter. This cuvee is single-vintage ultra-premium champagne, produced only when the harvest is exceptional from 3 Grands Crus only, 3 jewels in the crown of Champagne. Purity and precision are the keywords for Cuvee Louise. The dosage is extremely low to let the grapes, especially the Chardonnay, express themselves without artifice. Cuvee Louise quintessentially conveys the wine-making expertise of Pommery House.

James Suckling

Grilled bread with flowers, pears and apples. Lots of perfumes. Lavender and some herbs and nutmeg. The palate is tight and solid with fine phenolics and a long, intense finish. Pure and extremely linear and lively. Sophisticated and thought-provoking. Drink or hold.

Wine Spectator

A fresh and lacy Champagne, with a pleasing, creamy range of golden apple, blanched almond and lemon pound cake underscored by a streak of minerally saline and brine. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Drink now through 2030.
