Nine outstanding Champagnes over £50

9 Champagne Pommery, Cuvée Louise, 2004

I have always thought that Pommery’s Cuvée Louise is one of Champagne’s most underrated top-end blends, and so I was pleased to find out that one of the best samples from this year’s Masters tasting turned out to be this prestige cuvée from Pommery.

Having loved the previous release from the much-heralded 2002 harvest, it was good to see that the follow-on 2004 vintage was equally high quality, if slightly less rich in fruit character.

Essentially, if you like bright, fresh, citrusy Champagne with a toasty, nutty edge, and a very dry finish, then this is the top-end fizz for you.

Approximate retail price: £145
