Champagne Pommery is located in Reims in the Champagne region of France. The Champagne House was founded as Pommery Greno in 1858 by Alexandre Louis Pommery and Narcisse Greno. Alexandres widow, Louise Pommery dedicated the Company to Champagne production soon becaming one of the regions largest Champagne brands. In1874 Madame Pommery, affectionately nicknamed la Dame aux Roses (the Lady of the Roses) created the first vintage brut in the history of Champagne. Today this revolutionary dry style is now the standard in Champagne.
Cuvée Louise Champagne is created in Louise Pommery's name. 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. 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.
Pommery boasts some of the finest cellars in Reims, with over 18 kilometres of galleries hollowed out of chalk. Residing some 30 metres under the ground, these keep the maturing wine at a steady 10°c throughout the year.
