When it comes to celebratory sparklers, Pommery's POP is one of my go-to brands; its bubbles are consistently wonderful. Just in time for Earth Day, it's added a special new release to its collection of Champagnes. Pop Earth is a non vintage, eco-friendly bubbly. The bottle is made with a lighter glass and the label is printed on recycled paper with water-soluable ink. The grapes are sustainably grown and a limited amount of water and energy is used during the production of the wine. The liquid itself is straw in color with a slight yeasty aroma. It has apple undertones with brilliant bubbles and an easy-drinking smoothness. The only bad thing I discovered about this delightful Champagne was that it was gone much too quickly! Have you sipped Pommery's offerings?
With its delightful dryness and light, fizzy body, it's easy to pledge your allegiance to Pommery POP Champagne ($11.99).
A stylish wine with a pale yellow color, POP has a floral nose, creamy mouth feel, and subtle citrus flavor. I like POP for its smooth drinkability; it's refreshing and tastes great on its own.
The French sparkler is perfect for everyday or commemorating a special occasion like the 4th of July — especially now that they've released an all-American bottle! Fill an ice bucket with a bunch of bottles for an instant festive centerpiece or bring a 4-pack to surprise your hostess.
Have you tasted POP? What did you think of this effervescent sparkler?
I was out looking for a champagne for New Year's Eve when I came across these two little bottles of Pommery Pop champagne. The bright blue and pink quarter-sized bottles caught my attention from the other side of the room. One glance at the bold P-O-P lettering and colorful bottles and I was sold. I didn't even bother to read the description or rating; I just grabbed one of each and proceeded to the counter. Yes, I am a complete sucker for packaging, but the fact that it was called Pop and I happen to work at the home of PopSugar sort of closed the deal.
The blue is a standard dry champagne, with a nice fruit flavor. It's a tiny bit sweeter than your average dry champagne but is wonderfully smooth. The pink is a sparkling rosé that has a fresh, bright taste. The blend of different Chardonnays and Pinot wines, along with a dash of red wine, gives it a pale pink color and slight red currant flavor. Neither of them are run-out-and-purchase-immediately sort of champagnes, but they are quite tasty and not just a product of marketing. They're really fun, wonderfully transportable, and will bring a little pop to your next party. Oh and did I mention that you could theoretically drink it out of a straw?!
