TOTAL PURITYCreated as a tribute to Louise Pommery, Cuvée Louise is an absolutely pure wine which quintessentially conveys the wine-making expertise of the Pommery champagne house.UNIQUE PLOTSAvize, Cramant and Ay. Cuvée Louise originates in the vineyards of Avize, Cramant and Ay, three "Grands Crus"areas that are jewels in the crown of the Champagne region. The listed and sign-posted Cuvée Louise estates receive regular attention throughout the year. The Avize and Cramant Chardonnay grape and Ay Pinot Noir grape have particularly high sugar content. 200 dedicated pickers, most of them with years of experience, are able to assess the best grapes at a glance.THIERRY GASCO'S EXPERTISEPressing is performed in a traditional square press close to the vineyards so that the grapes arrive with their properties intact.To ensure that the juices are absolutely pure, for each marc of 4,000 kg only 1,800 litres of juice are selected instead of the authorised 2,550 litres. Pommery is the only champagne house to have such standards in place. Cuvée Louise is a vintage wine that reflects a single exceptional year. Thierry Gasco, Pommery's cellar manager, only decides to produce Cuvée Louise when the year's harvest is worthy of this great wine. After blending which combines the purity and richness of aromas, the wine begins a period of 6 to 8 years of ageing in our constantly cool chalk cellars.RESPECTING THE WINES'S CHARACTERFinally, a dosage is added. This dosage comprises Avize vintages to fully preserve the wine's character. Pommery ensures that each bottle of Cuvée Louise is stored in a cellar for a further six months to restore the champagne's natural balance.
