This gets my nod as the single best value in NV rosé Champagne that I have yet encountered. The complexity, class, and pure pleasure that it offers is plain remarkable, and incredibly consistent…..Two reviews here, one for the 2014 base year (what is in the Magnums), and one for the 2015 vintage (what is in the 750s).
“The current release of Ployez-Jacquemart’s non-vintage Extra Brut Rosé is comprised of its customary blend of fifty percent chardonnay, thirty-seven percent pinot noir and thirteen percent pinot meunier, with ten percent of the pinot noir being still red wine, which is raised in cask prior to its incorporation in the cuvée. I do not have the precise detail on the dosage, but
assume it is again around four grams per liter, as was the case with last year’s version. The wine hails from the base year of 2014 and was disgorged in July of 2018. It offers up a beautifully expressive bouquet of strawberries, tangerine, a hint of rhubarb, a fine base of soil, rye toast, gentle spice tones and a bit of upper register smokiness. On the palate the wine is pure, fullbodied,
focused and rock solid at the core, with excellent mousse, bright acids, impeccable balance and a long, complex and vibrant finish. Non-vintage Rosé Champagne does not get better than this, unless it is Krug! 2019-2045. 92+.” John Gilman for a different bottling, NOT THE BASE YEAR/DISGORGEMENT DATE OFFERED HERE
