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.
Welcome Drink :
Pommery Brut Royal
Pommery’s signature cuvée which year on year illustrates the freshness and finesse of Pommery’s style. Brioche, citrus and stone fruits on the nose. Fresh on the palate, with an elegant and well balanced finish.
Starter – Langoustine, Black pudding, Chard spring onion, blood orange, swede puree
Pommery Brut Rosé
Award winning rosé champagne. Delicately pale in colour, which is very much in keeping with the fresh Pommery style. Fresh red berry notes on the nose, of redcurrant, raspberry and wild strawberries, which carries through on the palate, with a smooth, well- rounded finish.

Pommery Grand Cru 2006
The Grands Crus selected by Pommery enjoy exceptional locations in vineyards of the Champagne region: their south–south-east exposure ensures maximum sunlight and their cultivation in the middle of hill slopes in rich chalky Champagne terrain guarantees excellent irrigation of the foot of the vines. Only 7 grand cru sites are used to make this cuvée. A complex nose of ripe stone fruits and French toast. More robust on the palate, with a long and structured finish.
Main – Fillet of Turbot, saffron Potato, beetroot, tender stem, crayfish emulsion
Pommery Cuvée Louise 2002
Named after Madame Pommery’s daughter, Louise. Only produced in the most outstanding vintages, with fruit carefully selected from the Grand Cru vineyards of Aÿ, Avize and Cramant. Intricate on the nose, with notes of warm pastry and ripe apricot. A precise and well-integrated palate with layers of complexity. The finish is extended, pure, seamless and refreshing.
Cheese – Regional cheese, artisan biscuits, fruit preserve
Dessert – Caramel Parfait, white Chocolate Panacotta, blackberry, cucumber, apple
Pommery Royal Blue Sky
This demi-sec champagne is one of the newest members to the Pommery family. On the nose and palate one can get lovely floral notes of orange blossom and honeysuckle, as well as lovely sweet notes of honey also.
