Champagne Pommery’s Cuvée Louise 2005 is always based on three grands crus: Avize and Cramant for Chardonnay and Aÿ for Pinot Noir. 2005 is no exception. While the cuvée usually spends at least eight years on lees, the 2005 was aged for 12 years, showing a distinctly evolved style with fine tertiary development. Pommery pride themselves on particularly cold cellars - 10°C/50°F all year round – which aids the slow evolution of the wines as they age.

Cellar master Clement Pierlot notes that Cuvée Louise is all about “elegance and delicacy”. Only fruit from the “best plots” of the three grand cru villages is used and of that only the first pressing of the juice to “preserve the purity of the terroir.”

The packaging has received a more modern touch. The house says the new “colours symbolise the history and the values of Maison Pommery: the pink of Madame Pommery and her visionary genius, the gold as a reminder of the beauty and richness of its heritage, and finally the blue of water and Pommery’s commitment to the preservation of the environment.”
