      Vranken Pommery
  logo-pommery-42x20cm-resize                                 Pommery Brut Royal NV is blended from equal amounts of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Menuier.
It has a ale yellow colourwith faint green highlights. On the nose it is fresh, light-hearted, and fine with notes of citrus fruit and white flower combined with small red
fruits. Elegant and lively, Pommery Brut Royal NV is a rounded, rich, but delicate wine that lingers in the mouth. In short, a clean taste with no dryness. A very smooth wine which never wanes on the palate.
      Les Vins de Graves

The Graves region is the cradle of Bordeaux white and red wines. The Graves wine district starts at the “Jalle de Blanquefort” and ends just after Langon.

The river forms the Easter border of the vineyards while to the west the pine forest of the Landes serves as boundary and protection alike. But the majority of A.O.C. GRAVES wines come from the area extending from La Brède to Langon, encircling the Barsac and the Sauternes appellation area.
