Ployez-Jacquemart Extra Quality Brut
“...one of the best-kept secrets in the realm of world class bubbly.”
Laurence Ployez is a third-generation winemaker at her family's estate, which was established in 1930. All of the work in the vineyards is done by hand, from the beginning of the growing season until the grapes are harvested. Unlike most producers in Champagne, she strives to keep the characteristic of each vintage even in her NV blends and only uses a very small amount of reserve wine, if any at all. This wine is 100% from the 2014 vintage (25% exclusively from Grand Cru and Premier Cru vineyards!) and is aged for a minimum of five years before disgorgement. That extra time has resulted in one of the loveliest Champagnes we’ve tasted in years. This is a Champagne to fall in love with.
25% Pinot Noir, 25% Pinot Meunier, and 50% Chardonnay
