Pommery, Cuvée Louise, Magnum 1996

Pommery, Cuvée Louise, Magnum 1996

RRP N/A

This 60% Chardonnay and 40% Pinot Noir was the only Champagne served in magnum. Disgorged in 2002 (original disgorgement), the nose is displaying tropical characters, with candied fruit and creamy undertones. Still very fresh, with a bright acidity in harmony with the ripe fruit characters and a hint of smokiness on the finish. The magnum size may have helped to preserve it from showing any signs of evolution – an advert, perhaps, for both the cuvée and the format? Lovely depth and simply delicious now.
