Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, January 2013
Smoky, featuring a delicate bead and vivid acidity backing flavors of poached apple, black licorice, dried papaya and black currant candy. Offers a fresh finish, with a hint of seaside. Drink now through 2020. – AN

Austere up front this wine's tight floral scents open to a splash of color in the finish as vivid as a 1960s Marimekko print. The lasting impression is bold and creamy. Decant it for seared scallops and truffled... Austere up front this wine's tight floral scents open to a splash of color in the finish as vivid as a 1960s Marimekko print. The lasting impression is bold and creamy. Decant it for seared scallops and truffled mashed potatoes.

Complex aromas of brioche lemon rind pear and yellow rose with suave lees and honey undertones. Fleshy and broad with gentle acidity reining in sweet orchard fruit and citrus flavors. The toasty note returns on the long sappy intriguingly smoky finish. Drinkable now as there's plenty going on but this will repay patience. -Josh Raynolds

60% chardonnay 40% pinot noir. Grapes from the crus of Avize Cramant and Ay. Named after Louise Pommery who is said to have developed the term "brut" as dry Champagne became in vogue. Very good effervescence... 60% chardonnay 40% pinot noir. Grapes from the crus of Avize Cramant and Ay. Named after Louise Pommery who is said to have developed the term "brut" as dry Champagne became in vogue. Very good effervescence pure and focused notes of white florals honey-drenched apricots and roasted nuts is most present quite different from the juicier style of the "Brut Royal". Of medium weight and body these flavors fan out across the palate with an element of freshly shaved sandalwood providing intrigue through to a lovely finish. (L91805)

Louise is always a light wine, almost feathery, and this 1999, now mature, maintains this style. It is delicate, its acidity just touched with toast and hints of citrus zest underneath.

It is delicate, its acidity just touched with toast and hints of citrus zest underneath. It doesn’t have a long future, so enjoy now.
