Ployez Jacquemart Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs 92jg 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

Fine mouse, gold with sparkle of green and light amber color. The nose is voluptuous, rich and mature. The palate is full and generous. Makers Notes "The 2002 Ployez-Jacquemart Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs is a fine bottle that shows a lovely spine of acidity to dovetail with the fine ripeness of the vintage. The deep and complex nose offers up an elegant mélange of delicious apples, tangerine, warm bread, gentle smokiness, lovely minerality and a floral topnote redolent of apple blossoms. On the palate the wine is deep, fullish and dancing, with fine mid-palate depth, very elegant mousse and lovely length and grip on the wide open and beautifully balanced finish. This is not quite as powerful as the house’s “Passion” Extra Brut non-vintage bottling, but it is an older wine and at ten years of age it is drinking very well indeed. High class juice...92" JG 08/12 "Light yellow. Potent, mineral-accented aromas and flavors of lemon zest, green apple, quince and jasmine. Refreshingly bitter and incisive, with excellent clarity and subtle smoke and iodine nuances. Closes on a dry, stony note, with impressive vivacity and persistence. Some claim that no-dosage Champagnes don't age well but this 10 year old wine is an example that confounds that assertion...93" IWC 11/12
