CHAMPAGNE PARTNER

Vranken-Pommery

Founded in 1836 by Narcisse GRENO, Louis POMMERY invested in this champagne trading company which would go on to bear his family name. But it was Jeanne-Alexandrine Louise POMMERY with her entrepreneurial spirit, who took over the running of the business after the sudden death of her husband in1858.

Madame POMMERY set about to create a Domaine which was fitting for the elaboration of her champagnes, instructing her winemaker to produce a wine of “joyful lightness”.

This led to the first commercial ‘brut champagne’ Pommery Brut Nature in 1874.

Clément Pierlot, Pommery’s 10th Chef de Cave describes the Pommery style in three words; “freshness, vivacity, finesse”

Today Champagne Pommery is part of the Vranken-Pommery Monopole Group.

Sud de France, The best of Occitanie

The southern French Region of Occitanie runs from the Spanish border to the edge or the Rhone valley, stretching 150km inland from the Mediterranean coast all the way to Toulouse. Occitanie covers a huge range of soils and terrain and offers and abundance of grapes and styles making it one of the world’s most exciting wine-production areas. The abundant southern sunshine and warmth make for flavoursome wines, but not at the expense of balance and finesse.  From red to white, dry to sweet, still to sparkling – you name it, they make it!
