This is a nifty one, a fairly new bottling for Laurence, made with zero dosage, and 100% from a single vintage. I have heard nothing but universal praise for this one from those who have dipped into this over the past two years…..
“”Ployez-Jacquemart’s Zéro Dosage non-vintage Brut Nature bottling is another new addition in the maison’s lineup, with the current release made up of a cépages of fifty-two percent chardonnay and twenty-four percent each of pinot noir and pinot meunier. The wine is from the base year of 2006 and is starting to show some lovely secondary layers of complexity in its refined bouquet of apple, warm biscuits, complex soil tones, dried flowers and a gentle touch of smokiness in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, complex and very well-balanced (particularly for a non-dosé wine), with a fine core, elegant mousse and a very long, seamless and zesty finish. This is high class juice. 2017-2030. 92.” John Gilman for the 2006 base, NOT THE 2010 BASE OFFERED HERE
