Pommery Apanage Blanc de Blancs NV
A meticulous and confidential selection of magnificent terroirs. A common denominator of these soils: Campanian chalk, declined according to different exposures and depths. The Chardonnays of Côte des Blancs provide the main support for this cuvée and ensure its great elegance. On this solid basis, the northern terroirs of the Montagne de Reims and the hills of Nogent l’Abbesse contribute liveliness, structure and complexity. It is the harmonious association of these great terroirs which allows this cuvée to express an astounding freshness and a maturity worthy of an Apanage.
Reserve wines to accentuate the aromas. As throughout the Pommery range, the collection of Pommery reserve wines supports the assemblage in a good proportion and enhances the sensation of
great maturity of this cuvée.
A long ageing in our historical cellars: As every Apanage, a prolonged ageing in the cellars provides this cuvée with the elegance and complexity which characterize it. This is an indispensable stage and one has to be patient to have all the subtleties of this assemblage revealed.
The aperitif will be a privileged moment to appreciate this wine but caviar or a carpaccio of scallops with green lemon will reveal other facets of this cuvee. Remarkable elegance, the first nose reveals a spring freshness. Subtle floral notes of jasmine and acacia are harmoniously paired with delicate grades of linden. After this first impression of an incredible freshness, a large complexity reveals itself during which notes of citrus fruits and a creamy impression of frangipane express themselves alternately.
The attack is open, without detour, as a sign of a very great assemblage. The elegance and freshness revealed on the nose can be found on the palate. The heart of the tasting is of an exemplary righteousness. The aromas of citrus fruits and white fruits (fresh apple) take over. The balance of the final is perfectly revealing the subtle flavor of yellow grapefruit.
