Champagne Pommery, Cuvée Louise Parcelle 2005
"Cuvée Louise is the flagship of Maison Pommery. This Champagne is only produced in the best vintages from 3 important Grand Crus: Avize and Cramant for Chardonnay (65%) and Aÿ for Pinot Noir (35%). It rests on its yeasts for at least 10 years, offering then a great complexity and balance.
Cuvée Louise 2005 "Edition Parcelles" embodies the colours that symbolise the history and values of the Maison Pommery: pink for Madame Pommery and her visionary genius, gold as a reminder of the beauty and richness of their heritage, and finally blue for the commitment to preserving the environment.
The 2005 harvest took place in cool, dry and sunny weather, ideal conditions for a great vintage. The best grapes were carefully selected during the harvest and used for immediate pressing, resulting in a quintessential first pressing.
Cuvée Louise 2005 "Edition Parcelles" has a brilliant light golden colour, with elegant floral notes of lime and hawthorn on the nose followed by touches of yellow fruits such as peach, pear and plum. To the palate, spicy notes of vanilla and toasted hazelnuts add complexity to its delicate perfume. A very fresh Champagne on the palate with a nice minerality."
