Ployez Jacquemart Extra Brut rosé

Ployez Jacquemart Extra Brut rosé

$55.00

From a 2013 base wine, it is a blend 50% Chardonnay/37% Pinot Noir/13% Pinot Meunier, with a dosasge of 4 grams. This is essentially the 2013 Extra Quality Brut base wine with Grand cru still red wine added for color (à la Egly Ouriet around the corner….). Bonkers good value found here, a true rarity for rosé of this quality…..a 6pk/case buy no brainer!!

“The new release of the Ployez-Jacquemart non-vintage Extra Brut Rosé is another absolutely beautiful bottle of rosé. The cépages is a rather unique and compelling blend of fifty-five percent pinot meunier, thirty-nine percent chardonnay and six percent pinot noir, with ten percent of the blend made up of still red wines (a combination of pinot noir and pinot meunier). As is typical with this bottling, the color is a delicate, pale salmon and the bouquet is absolutely superb, offering up an aromatic constellation of tangerine, white cherry, chalky minerality, bread dough, orange peel and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, crisp and complex, with a fine core, lovely focus and grip, very elegant mousse and a long, poised and complex finish. Lovely juice. 2015-2025+. (Jul/Aug 2015)” 92+ points John Gilman (I don’t believe that this review is for this particular disgorgement, but I am not certain……”)

Description

The complexity, class, and pure pleasure that it offers is plain remarkable, and incredibly consistent…..
“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
