Friday 24th February 2017-Pommery Champagne dinner £110

Madame Pommery had two words to describe her champagne: cheerful lightness. Taking it one step further, Pommery stands for delicacy and vivacity, heart and spirit, a style made of finesse whose musical score highlights the elegance of aromas before their power. It is a style full of freshness, with notes that come together like a witty dialogue, remaining on the palate with tender flavours. 
The grapes are pressed in traditional presses that contain 4,000 kg of grapes, from which 2,550 litres of juice are extracted. Initial alcoholic fermentation turns the grape juice contained in the vats into wine, under the action of selected yeasts. Several wines made from different varietals, different crus, or different vintages, are blended to create and perpetuate the Pommery style.
