Pommery launches Apanage Blanc de NoirsBy Lucy Shaw
Champagne Pommery has added a “fresh, delicate and ethereal” blanc de noirs to its Apanage range, made from a blend of Pinot Noir and Meunier.
Aiming to showcasing the “intensity and elegance” of Pinot Noir and the “fullness” of Meunier, Pommery Apanage Blanc de Noirs is “pale gold with amber reflections” and displays “very fine effervescence”.
According to the house, the nose reveals “subtle floral notes of acacia and peony enveloped by sugary sensations of mirabelle, crushed strawberry and frangipani”.
It also displays “nuances of vanilla and soft spices”. The Champagne’s floral notes are mirrored on the palate, along with flavours of “acacia honey, pear, blood orange, red fruits and spices”.
“The idea behind Pommery Apanage Blanc de Noirs was to continue in the footsteps of our Pommery Apanage Blanc de Blancs, which was released in 2019.
“In contrast to the structure of the Blanc de Blancs, the Blanc de Noirs is fresh, delicate and ethereal, rounding off the Pommery Apanage range perfectly,” Julien Lonneux, Vranken Pommery UK’s CEO, said.
Lonneux recommends enjoying Pommery Apanage Blanc de Noirs as an apéritif or with tapas, roast chicken, Japanese tempura, or a white truffle risotto.
