An excellent introduction to the brilliance of the 2008 vintage in Champagne, this has a cornucopia of citrus, toast and brioche notes, plus some red-fruit character. Powerful and structured, but very focused with impressive chalky minerality, this is just reaching ideal drinking form. Very long, tantalizing finish, where the high natural acidity is well integrated. A blend of 50% pinot noir and 50% chardonnay all from Grand Cru villages. Drink or hold.
It was a must for Pommery not to miss out on one of the greatest vintages of champagne. One single term to characterise 2008: unexpected! After a difficult summer, nature succeeded in aligning its stars and allowed us to have an exceptional harvest. 2008 has already conquered aficionados from all over the world, but it is a special vision of 2008 in the pure style of our Maison that we propose to you. Only originating from grands crus, with an exceptional ageing potential, slowly brought to maturity in the freshness of our 18 kilometres of galleries, it is necessary to wait to taste a Pommery vintage at its zenith: the precise moment when all the components are in harmony and when maturity, freshness and complexity come together. This moment has come for our 2008 vintage.
