On Wednesday, June 14th, The Senoritas attended the launch party for the newest edition to the Pommery family of elite wines and champagnes. This California Sparkling wine is affectionately named: Louis Pommery. The debuting venue was the new Public Hotel in Soho at 215 Chrystie Street. The Public Hotel has been featured in the WSJ magazine and Vogue, and no wonder, it’s pristine aesthetics and swanky vibe make you feel like a queen (or 👑 king).
Upon walking into the event we were immediately greeted by warm smiling faces. The servers were neat, attentive, and presentable. As we approached the indoor bar, we were served two cold glasses of sparkling wine in champagne flutes. We sipped, savored, and enjoyed. Pommery never ceases to provide great quality as they have for well over a century.
prestige champagne maison , Pommery, dates back to the mid 1800’s and was founded by Louis Pommery. The brand is one of the largest champagne houses in France. The California sparkling wine is a new take on the brand, currently led by Thierry Gasco who sought after a “modern fresh sipping favorite” and boy did he deliver! 😄

By removing yeast sediment, the color is pure and clear, almost transparent. Made of 96% Chardonnay and 4% Pinot Noir, the result boasts notes of green apple, peaches and apricot. The balance of minerality and acidity is harmoniously synchronized.
We proceeded to the outdoor rooftop bar where they presented a delicious cocktail named “Louis Meets Poppy”. They combined the sparkling with a bitter liqueur by Greenbar Distillery, “Grand Poppy”. With a rose petal placed on top for a little extra appeal 😘, we found this quite Señorita worthy!
Hor d’oeuvres of smoked salmon, tuna tartare, and the like were passed around to compliment this delicious sparkling wine. Upon departure we were treated with a goody bag containing a cute bottle stopper. Can never have enough of those! 🍾
We had a great time and certainly put our stamp of approval on this innovative beverage. Louis Pommery is not only a new summer staple for sushi night 🍣 , outdoor BBQs 🍖 and long nights around the fire pit 🔥 but an all year round favorite! 😋
Kudos Pommery, and thank you so much for having us!
