Pommery Champagne House
Champagne Pommery is a French Champagne house founded in Reims by Alexander Pommery and Narcisse Greno in 1836. After Alexander’s death in 1858, Madame Pommery dedicated the business to Champagne production. Her innovative crisp, dry style of “brut” champagne in 1874 propelled the Champagne house into unimaginable heights, becoming one of the largest Champagne brands in the region.
Following from her success Madame Pommery built ‘The Grand Castle’ in 1868 – The estate features a 308 acre vineyard of excep- tional Grand Cru sites and 18 kilometres of cellars and chalk pits where Madame Pommery stored and aged over twenty million bottles of her innovative Champagne. Many other Champagne houses later followed suit.
Famed for being the creators of the ever popular Brut Champagne, the Pommery house still attracts more than 120,000 visitors from all around the world every year. Now owned by the Vranken company, the Pommery brand continues to maintain the house’s image of modernity and extrava- gance, being the only Champagne House to oer specic blends for dierent seasons – highlighting individual characteristics of each of their prestigious wines. The Pommery style has perpetuated year after year; elegant but ever discreet aromas, freshness and liveliness on the palate with a long and supple nish, a light but fresh composition.
