Pommery Grand Cru Royal 2008
It was a must for Pommery not to miss out on one of the greatest vintages of champagne. One single term to characterize 2008: unexpected! After a difficult summer, nature succeeded in aligning its stars and allowed an exceptional harvest. 2008 has already conquered the hearts of aficionados from all over the world, but this is a special vision of 2008 in the pure style of Maison Pommery.
On the eye: The color is a crystalline gold with green reflections.
On the nose: Elegance, minerality, freshness. First of all intense floral notes reach us: the peony floats around the hawthorn. Maturity is expressed by fruity notes of pear and fresh apricot. The great Pinot Noir presents itself with notes of crushed fresh strawberries.
On the palate: A mineral structure fills the palate from the attack to the finish like a spine. Notes of acacia honey and Mirabelle underline the central element of the tasting. The finish is punctuated by a nice sweetness, marked by flavors of blood orange.
