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.
Grape / Blend
55% Chardonnay, 37% Pinot Noir and 13% Pinot Meunier
Winemaker's Tasting Notes
We only produce Rosé wines in years when the quality of the black grapes is really very good. They are all produced by blending Extra Quality Brut champagne (blending the first pressings of premier grand crus with a majority of black grapes), to which a small amount of red champagne is added. Each harvest provides us with different structures and colour intensities. Adding red wine allows us to ensure the colour remains stable and precise. It allows us to create an expressive blend delicately combining the expression of red berry aromas and a rich, long finish, while maintaining its intensity. Our red wines are produced in our oak casks, revealing a very light, elegant hint of woodiness. We use very small dosages to allow all of the wine’s fruits and aromas to filter through. Tasting: Beautiful bubbles. Very fresh pink colour. Fruity, fresh bouquet. Clear finish and unnoticeable dosage.
