This is the first time that I have seen/offered a vintage dated Blanc de Noirs from Laurence, whcih has me quite excited to check it out……from uniquely 1er and Grand cru parcels, it is sure to over deliver, as seemingly everything that she makes does….
“The 2012 Ployez-Jacquemart Blanc de Noirs Extra Brut is a fifty-fifty blend of pinot noir and pinot meunier, hailing from premier cru parcels in Ludes and grand cru parcels in Mailly. The wine is very elegant aromatically, offering up a superb, refined bouquet of white peach, apple, chalky soil tones, patissière, spring flowers and just a whisper of buttery oak from the vins clairs that were raised in cask. On the palate the wine is bright, focused and full-bodied, with excellent depth at the core, elegant mousse, fine precision and purity and a long, complex and beautifully balanced finish. Great juice that should age superbly well, but is already quite tasty out of the blocks. 2019-2050+. 92.” John Gilman
