POMMERY

The Champagne Group, one of the most famous in the world, stands out above all for having founded its values on some strong points, never questioned and which today represent the DNA of the entire group. The desire to maintain a family management for a house founded and directed by Paul-Francois Vranken since 1976. And today known everywhere. The protection of the most important wine heritage in Europe consists of 7,160 hectares of Designation of Origin vineyards with properties in Champagne, Camargue and Provence (in France) and Douro Superiore (in Portugal). To be ambassadors of excellence for a refined product of the French tradition such as Champagne. All over the world. Wide worldwide distribution. Vranken-Pommery Monopole brands are distributed in 147 countries worldwide. Always be a leader in the production and marketing of rosé wines from the south of France. Respect the key words that have represented for the founder the basis of success: Innovation, Savoir-Faire, Audacity. The cellars of the Pommery Domain have been obtained by transforming 120 chalk quarries of Gallo-Roman origin. They are connected by 18 km of tunnels intended to accommodate the bottles in aging. This ambitious project took ten years of work between 1868 and 1878. 116 steps... to access a fantastic world! The visit to this "underground cathedral" is superb and is accessed via a sumptuous staircase of 116 steps that leads us to 30 meters below ground, opening to one of the most impressive shows of the Maison de Champagne. The cellars now house 25 million bottles including the oldest Cuvée of the Maison Pommery. The vineyards of Maison Pommery are located essentially in the villages classified Grand Cru. About 300 hectares of vineyards divided between seven villages classified 100%. On the slopes of the mountains of Reims: Mailly, Verzenay, Bouzy and Ay for Pinot Noir; Sillery for Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. On the Côte des Blancs: Cramant and Avize for Chardonnay. The calcareous soil, formidable heat reservoir, and the climate, alternating Atlantic meekness and continental rigor, create all the specificity of the Maison’s vineyards. In any climatic condition expert winemakers carry out daily the traditional agronomic operations until you get to the magical time of harvest in September-October. The grapes are harvested by hand in order to select the best bunches and keep them intact.
