LOUIS POMMERY ENGLAND PRIVATE LUNCHEON TO CELEBRATE THE HARVEST AT PINGLESTONE ESTATE

Tasting The Award Winning Louis Pommery England Brut 1st English Sparkling Wine from a Champagne House

Louis Pommery

Pinglestone Estate is a 40-hectare site where chalk is the main element, it’s made of 30 hectares of vineyard to date, planted between 2017 and 2019.  Planted in 2017 and 2018 what you will discover here this Vineyard produces internationally renowned grape varieties Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Meunier the same found in Champagne.

 

Whilst these vines have been establishing themselves over the past few years, Vranken-Pommery released its first English sparkling wine of it’s kind. Louis Pommery England has sourced the grapes mainly from Hampshire. The award-winning Louis Pommery England is the first English sparkling wine from a champagne house to date.

WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF LOUIS POMMERY
Sparkling Wine made in Hampshire, England. Created with Maison Pommery and Launched in 2018

Clément Pierlot, Vranken Pommery’s Cellar Master has this to say on the decision to plant in Hampshire: 

“We think there is something very special here in Hampshire. The quality of the wines, the quality of the chalk – something that reminds us of Champagne. But there is something very particular in the wines that we can find only here – the acidity and the tension of course very linked to the region”.

Just recently, I spent the day with Louis Pommery England Vranken Team, Clement Pierlot Cellar Master and James Boweman Vineyard Manager for an exclusive tour of the Vineyards at Pingleston Estate in Celebration of their 2021 Harvest on site. The main highlight of my press visit was I really very much enjoyed tasting the Louis Pommery England Brut during the Private Luncheon which was so exceptional that I took some great pictures of the sumptuous cuisine served as we dinned in a 15th Century old barn on the Pingleston Estate.

Even more so, the beautiful weather made it feel like I was in Reims even though it was Hampshire just stones throw away on my doorstep. While I was there at the vineyard, I was rather enjoying picking the internationally renowned grape varieties Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, and Meunier. It was a unique fantastic experience earning my lunch at the Louis Pommery England Harvest and out of all the vineyards I’ve visited, this in fact was my first time picking some grapes for real.

“A Grape Day for the 2021 Harvest at Pinglestone Estate. From the fruit of the vine, this sparkling wine is the result of Pommery’s quest for elegance and freshness”

The Private Intimate Harvest Luncheon with Louis Pommery England

Here’s a bit of background into the The Louis Pommery England Sparkling Wine project which started in 2015 as I got a brief introduction from Clement the in house Cellar Manager who discussed that the idea was to create a wine estate so it’s a long term project.

It is known that Pommery spent months and years scouting to find a great place that was ideal vision for the brand we associate with today as Champagne with its longstanding heritage. In 2016 Pommery brought the land here in Hampshire, so it was great pleasure to see it with my own eyes with a view of Its 40 acres up on the hill. They wanted to create very good wines so they purchased grapes in the beginning in 2014, 2015 to start to produce wines from Hampshire as sparkling wine from England.

MADE IN ENGLAND WITH PASSION, TASTE AND ART – THE ART OF SPARKLING
On the nose, you will find aromas of white fruits, mostly pear and then vine peach. A tasting pleasure for your tastebuds. The bubbles and effervescence are expressed wonderfully.

Louis Pommery England – An Art which mixes precision and Tradition

I think there is something very special here in Hampshire the taste of the wine. You may remember Pommery from Champagne, because it’s the same soil with the same finesse in the wine. But I learnt it’s something very particular in the wines that you can find only here as a fruit. I’m referring to the quality of the fruit is very particular, the acidity and the tension is linked to the region. In 1874 the incredible quest began when the very first bottles Brut Nature were resting in the cellars of Domain Pommery. Today, Louis Pommery England is developed according to a completely classic and traditional method based on the internationally renowned grape varieties that are Chardonnay, Pinot Noir & Meunier.

Award Winning Wines – Make Everything a Celebration!

A few years back Pommery England started to make the sparkling wine in 2015 and step by step so the blend they wanted to do was not easy because for non vintage sparkling wine they had to create a collection wiser wine. So in the beginning you will taste 2017 base. 2016 was the first real blend, but Pommery have managed everything from the wiser wines, the wine making process etc. In 2017, the blend with wiser wines we have 10percent. Year 2016 and 2017 the ways in which Pommery as a Luxury Brand are proud is where they have won gold medals in 2016 and 2017 also so they are very happy with these award winning wines produced.

The idea was to make wines with the same blend, but what will be on the Estate Vineyard is based on the Chardonnay and the planting of Pingleton Estate is a based on Chardonnay its mainly from this. You will be astonished to know Its more than 50 percent of chardonnay in the blend so you will see this in Pingleston Estate. The idea to purchase grapes that are very close from the Estate with the same blend but what Pommery have in the estate. Other grapes found on the Estate apart from Chardonnay are Pinot Noir and Meunier the same as champagne. They also have pinot gris so Pommery’s harvest day falls on 15th October is very special because I actually got to pick these grapes as a guest at the vineyard during my visit. Pomerys Cellar Master Clemont was curious what can produce pinot gris here in Hampshire and its going pretty well so far.

James Bowreman Vineyard Manager, Louis Pommery England Pinglestone Vineyard

I had a really pleasant and enjoyable time on a jolly jaunt to the vineyard which is very close to the offices. You will see during the point that I am on a special site because Pommery have chosen it for different reasons due to the altitude of the site is very low for the ripeness, the shelter of the site too. For that reason, its because the idea of the UK have oceanic influence such as strong winds to making this a main priority from beginning to find a very well sheltered site.

When I look beneath my feet I can see the chalk that this vineyard is based on. According to the Vineyard Manager James this has been dug out and put on top, but what you will see across the site is about 20 to 30 cm of top soil. Straight into New Haven and Seaford Chalk which is about 80 million years old the chalk seam that runs through Hampshire and this gives the land superb draining for the soil. In this case, its so typical what we always experience in England which is the rain we can find that this site dries extraordinary quickly. So within 24 hours, maybe 48 hours I can work back onto the site and so there is no moisture retained in the soil which is good news for the vines being a Mediterranean kind of plant which really wants a dry soil and dry roots with lots of sunshine.

I discovered across the site during my visit to the vineyard you start on the west facing side and to the east. What we have is a hill with the wood on top and around the wood there is a 360 degree aspect for vineyards, so there are vines planted on a south west side, vines planted south facing, and vines planted east facing. James, mentioned in the UK over the last 15 years sometimes the east facing slopes tend to do better, sometimes the west is really dependant on the climate and as you know its really changeable in the UK. One of the biggest challenges Pommery faces is rising into the changes of the climate, so they are very pleased in some years the western side will produce riper fruit in a different expression. Although in other years will see the same result on the eastern side.

This will be the first Pingleston Estate grown wine. Its really interesting actually, I’ve learnt a lot about wine in terms of the soil and the environment to help it grow so you get a decent wine produced at the end of it. From what I’ve gathered from my visit to the Pingleston Estate Vineyard is the importance that you don’t get any splash while harvesting the wine and secondly the issue concerning the bacteria, moisture control of the environment and met with some really interesting people today to give me a better insights of the wine producing business.

Louis Pommery

Having spent the day with Pommery England I’m so keen to want improve my knowledge about wine so it’s good to know there is something like this on my doorstep within easy reach of the home counties and London. I had the most fabulous Harvest Lunch on the Pinglestone Estate post grape picking and vineyard tour courtesy of Clement, James and the Pommery Vranken team and a chance to try the delicious Louis Pommery England Brut of course. I felt the wine also really complimented the cuisine served which was a sumptuous Autumnal Salad as Starter, followed by the Main Slow cooked pork cheek with apricots, pine nuts and bean puree to the most divine desert ever a Burnt Basque cheesecake which was so delightful to taste for my first time. Enjoy Louis Pommery England with Cheese, Grilled Meats or Vegetarian Dishes when paired together would also be great to host a dinner party, so sit back, relax and enjoy a glass of Louis Pommery England. Always something to Celebrate, expect nonetheless from this very forthright and bold wine that is traditionally perfect and the most delightful crowd pleaser with England’s finest sparkling wine.

Traveling to London? Need to stay central? This eco-friendly, luxury apart hotel is located just 5 minutes walk from Waterloo Station

There’s nothing more satisfying than checking into a hotel for a holiday or mini staycation as it’s been a long while since I took an actual vacation. Just last week I headed to the Stow-Away Hotel in South Bank for that well needed staycation one evening. I’ve only managed to get away rarely this year due to the current global pandemic, so welcomed the chance to just get away and make the most of this opportunity to travel. The thrill and excitement of packing a bag once more seemed very appealing to me so I decided to jump on a train to the London Eco Luxury Hotel.

THE CULTURAL DISTRICT OF SOUTHBANK 

(Gifted Press Stay) The hotel is location in London South Banks cultural district, built in 2018 on Lower Marsh Street in the dynamic cultural borough of Southwark. Southbank has seen creativity come alive from frequent fairs and witnessed historical events such as the hotels original land lot being bombed in WWII has been home to world class arts venues The Southbank Centre to BFI film theatre and National Theatre.

Did you know at Stow-Away they have a heat recovery system that recycles the excess heat from the air conditioning system into hot water to help reduce overall energy consumption. It’s good to know that you can sleep comfortably with the aircon on knowing the excess heat is put towards your shower in the morning too.

I was immediately impressed upon arrival to the property with a friendly customer service team on standby and their keyless entry using a Digital App on your smartphone with ease.

I’d say the check-in process was seemingly easy to set up as your room number and booking details were issued by email before arrival and no waiting around which was ideal.

Using the App just open up the key screen by holding it up to the reader on the main front entrance or hotel room door to gain secure access. I stayed in room 203 on the 2nd Floor reachable by the main set of stairs or lift access to all floors. Prices for a Maximum of 2 persons sharing in the Apartments start from £98.10 per night.

I really loved the extremely comfy bed with ultra Hypnos mattresses – the Award winning makers of bespoke, handcrafted and sustainably-made beds & mattresses approved by the HRH the Queen. In hindsight the overall design aesthetics of the room sizes and layout during my stay were effortlessly sleek and contemporay.

But the main highlight of this room had to be the fully equipped kitchen for all your culinary needs as a home away from home. As this stay was personal to me to switch off and relax, I did just that by taking a rain shower and pamper myself with Molton Brown toiletries before bed in the walk in marble tiled bathroom. But, most importantly I wanted to comment how clean the apartment was especially at present where this is essential more than ever before.

I’ve never felt so re-assured with contactless check in, mask, relaxed social distancing rules in ground floor restaurant and bar ‘Unwind’ Pop Up at the Hotel to a spotless Apartment with fresh remote for Smart TV. Rest-assured a lot of careful thought has gone into implementing a solid covid action plan on their website to ensure all guest feel confident they are always protected. It’s so good to be back in hotels again whether you need to stay a for the night, a week, or longer duration, this contemporary eco hotel offers everything you could want to make your stay a pleasant one. I’ve already recommended Stow-Away Hotel to friends and family as a space to work and a space to relax for those interested in booking a Business trip to London? The eco Apartment studios are centrally located in London, which offer sufficient space to work, relax and enjoy.

Sustainable fashion has been at the focus of the apparel and clothing industry recently and it’s heartening to see the brand Naeco producing their sunglasses using repurposed plastic bottles from our oceans.

The Deep Connection with the Ocean is Naeco’s DNA, and Founder Zak chose to be a business that reduces waste, recycles and makes a difference.

It’s quite astonishing how their approach to pioneer eco textiles makes for a stylish design and investing in products like these will help secure cleaner oceans for future generations to come.

Just 5 percent of plastics are recycled effectively while 40 percent end up in the landfill and a third in fragile ecosystems such as the world’s oceans.

Much of the remainder is burned. Did you know, at least 8m tonnes of plastics leak into the oceans – which is the equivalent of dumping the contents of one rubbish truck into the ocean every minute.

The Ocean is in Our Hands

The sunglasses range also come in a gloss or matt finish for a luxurious feel, contemporary and made to last.

Not only because they are a luxury product, and who doesn’t adore something well made and long lasting.

They have a few different styles but the wayfarers were my favourite just because they are light weight and very comfortable. It’s maybe it’s something to do with the German engineered frame is spot on and very versatile to wear whether sailing the highs or poolside lounging.

Curious and what to know what’s in it? If you love the fresh feeling of summer then this ones defiantly up your street if you love all things citrusy. Throughout history citrus has formed an integral part of the Côte d’Azur from the prestige of Menton Lemon to Fleur d’Oranger used in the perfumeries of Grasse. Cap Gin contains all of these botanicals, fruit, spices, and herbs to create flavour that is derived from this iconic region. You’ll notice the flavorsome of coriander and juniper mixed just right with natural scents found here to create this premium French Gin.

Just a bit of background into CAP Gin which was created by it’s co founder’s Andrew Campbell, James Auld, Adam Payne three friends to embody the rich culture and diverse heritage of its residents with homage to the spirit of the Côte d’Azur. The port town of Antibes can considered as a major influence with its significance of historical culture to the alluring glitterati nightlife scene.

Even the bottle reflects the clear coastal waters of the Mediterranean brought to life as the go to lifestyle brand. When tasting the gin for yourself it gives you that feeling of being there in the moment or aspire to want to go there is the idea to sell you the Côte d’Azur lifestyle in a bottle.
