Description

YES!!! This cuvée is always a knockout, with this year’s new release of the 2009 base year……50% Chardonnay, 25% Pinot Nor, 25% Pinot Meunier.
“To my palate, Laurence Ployez makes some of the most refined wines in all of Champagne. Her 2008 Ployez-Jacquemart “Extra Brut Vintage” is composed of a cépages of fifty percent chardonnay and twenty-five percent each of pinot noir and pinot meunier and was disgorged in March of 2018, after spending nine years aging sur latte. It was finished with a dosage of three to four grams per liter. The wine shows lovely complexity and precision on the nose, wafting from the glass in a mix of pear, apple, a touch of passion fruit, fresh almond, a complex base of soil, brioche and a gently musky floral topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, focused and very complex, with a fine core, elegant mousse and superb length and grip on the seamlessly balanced finish. Laurence barrel-ferments some of her vins clairs for this bottling and there is just a whisper of buttery oak elements to be found on the backend of this very complex wine. Fine, fine juice. 2019-2055. 94.” John Gilman for the 2008, NOT THE 2009 OFFERED HERE
