Pommery Champagne Cuvée Louise 2004
|Region||France, Champagne, Reims|
Bright and minerally, featuring smoke and pastry dough notes layered with lemon curd and pureed black currant details, riding the lively bead. Offers a creamy finish, with a lightly floral overtone. Drink now through 2024.
The 2004 Brut Cuvée Louise offers up delicate aromas of honeyed orchard fruit, flowers and caramel, followed by a medium to full-bodied palate that's crisp and incisive, with a tight-knit core, a pinpoint mousse and a moderately persistent finish. While the wine needs a little bottle age to open up, I was hoping for more concentration and mid-palate presence.
