Champagne Pommery was founded in 1857 by Mr. Pommery but taken over by Louise Pommery in 1858 after the death of her husband. The rest is history: the young widow Pommery took over the champagne business and led it on to success and glory. This wine is blend of chardonnay, pinot noir, pinot meunier from forty different crus. This is one of our favorite champagnes in the store. For the price point this champagne is reliable and always meets expectations. It has characteristics of fresh green fruit such as granny smith apples and subtle brioche notes. This is our #1 recommended aperitif champagne and party pleaser.
