Champagne Pommery Cuvée Louise 2004
It presents itself to the eye with a nice colour and a rare elegance, where the yellow has some subtle greeny touches peeping through, providing it with a wonderful appearance of youth. The effervescence is deployed in a universe of bubbles with an extreme fineness, which linger on the surface before they disappear.
On the nose it releases a quantity of unsuspected fragrances, where everything is well ordered and harmonious. It is rich, generous and silky, allowing for some notes of biscuits, resulting from the effect of the yeasts. It is extended by spicy touches, embellished by floral notes but also fresh fruit with white flesh, like greengage.
The mouth is only the infinite extension of everything the nose was able to reveal. It enhances the olfactory sensations, all in a perfect harmony in C major. Vividness remains whilst being blended with nice flavours of hazelnut butter, yeasts and almond paste. The final has a length which is close to the infinite, highlighting the fineness, purity and nobility of this wine, made to be loved.
Cuvée Louise could not ignore a year like 2004, when everything was predestined for it. By taking the time to select the best parcels, being patient and waiting with the harvest, picking only the most beautiful bunches, choosing the purest of juices during pressing, the only possible conclusion was unequivocal: nature is great, generous and beautiful. What could be more marvellous than working with such a precious raw material, so rich and so fine: the assemblage became an exercise blending pleasure and satisfaction. After the years spent in the cellars, the bottles have acquired the maturity which is indispensable for a wine of this kind. Today it is ready for everybody’s delight.
