Ployez-Jacquemart, Extra Quality Brut, Champagne, France, NV
Overview of the Wine
Ployez-Jacquemart is a family House created in 1930 by Marcel Ployez and his wife Yvonne Jacquemart. The whole essence of Ployez-Jacquemart rests in our continual search for excellence, our understanding of the Champagne terroir and our abilities to craft truly fine wines. These skills have been passed down through three generations. Our respect for this noble heritage is the cornerstone of our approach to Champagne production.
We work our own predominantly Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier vineyards in the Premier and Grands Crus villages of Ludes and Mailly Champagne, Villedommange, and Vertus. Tremendous care is taken in working these vines by hand; when necessary, we will green harvest to ensure the overall quality of the final harvest.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Featuring an elegant foam, this champagne reveals a nice golden color. The nose is ripe with notes of honey. The palate is rich and reveals a beautiful length.
#65 of Wine Spectator's Top 100 of 2020
92 Points - Wine Spectator
A lovely hint of honeysuckle accents the flavors of mirabelle plum, white cherry, anise and grated ginger in this vibrant Champagne, which is finely knit and detailed in texture, with a mouthwatering finish of ripe fruit, spice and chalk accents.
90 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The latest release of Ployez-Jacquemart's emblematic NV Extra Quality Brut was disgorged with around five grams per liter dosage after three years on the lees. Mingling aromas of orange oil and fresh peach with hints of brioche and smoke, it's medium to full-bodied, fleshy and enveloping, with a tightly wound core, racy acids and a dry, chalky finish. It will show even better after an additional year or two on cork.
