"Summertime is 100% Chardonnay and it shimmers in the glass enticingly. Quite different to all of the other Pommery wines this is an uplifting, palate-cleansing style with immediate charm and joie de vivre. An aperitif style of Champagne, Summertime is light on its feet and as invigorating as a dive into an ice cold plunge pool on a baking hot day." Matthew Jukes
In 1874 Pommery created the very first successfully marketed Brut Champagne. To assure the quality associated with this original innovation, Pommery used grapes from 300 ha of Grand Cru vineyards on the Montagne de Reims and the Côtes de Blancs. Thierry Gasco, Chef de Cave and Le Figaro’s ‘Man of the Year’ oversees the whole operation from vine to press to bottle, producing thousands of bottles a year, aged in an 18km network of underground cellars. Consistent top quality, together with the variety and innovation afforded by nine different crus, from the Brut Royal to the divine Cuvée Louise, is what sets Pommery apart from other Grandes Marques.
Champagne is the world's original and most famous region for the production of sparkling wine. A range of styles are produced from the Non-Vintage, through Rose, Vintage and more recently a host of prestige, Vintage luxury cuvees. The three permitted grape varieties are Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.
