Laurence Ployez is a third-generation winemaker at her family’s estate, which was established in 1930. Ployez-Jacquemart owns 2.15 hectares of premier cru and grand cru vineyards in Ludes and Mailly-Champagne, in the Montagne de Reims. This area is known for its classic chalk slopes. Additionally, Laurence purchases premier cru and grand cru grapes from 12 hectares of vineyards, cultivated by growers that the family has worked with for over 20 years.
Golden in the glass with an intense nose, aromas of red fruit, fresh and balanced. On the palate the wine is bright, focused and full-bodied, with excellent depth at the core, elegant mousse, fine precision and purity and a long, complex and beautifully balanced finish.
All of the work in the vineyards is done by hand- from the beginning of the growing season until the grapes are harvested. 2012 is considered a high quality vintage producing wines of great balance. This assemblage of Blanc de Noirs was last created in 1978! Comprised of 50% Pinot Noir and 50% Pinot Meunier, hailing from premier cur parcels in Luges and Grand Cru parcels in Mailly. The wine received 6 years of elevage, with 4 years sur pointes. A dosage of 3 grams/litre.
