Champagne Ployez-Jacquemart

Ployez-Jacquemart is a family champagne house, founded in 1930 by the husband and wife team of Marcel Ployez and Yvonne Jacquemart. Laurence, third generation of the family, perpetuates the founding values of the house: passion, tradition and dedication. She has committed herself to make the most of each harvest and produce great prestige wines.

A beautiful foam and a gold color still very fresh. The nose is very complex and has a beautiful richness.
Great as an aperitif or served with smoked salmon roulade
Following a strict selection at harvest, the blend is composed of 17% Pinot Noir, 66% Chardonnay and 17% Pinot Meunier. Primary fermentation occurs in 2-3 year old 225L oak barrels before being put to bottle 7-8 months after the harvest, to age for at least 10 years in the cellar before disgorgement. As with all wines of Ployez-Jacquemart, dosage is very low at approximately 3 grams per litre. Malolactic fermentation is avoided completely allowing the wine to mature with a very delicate and elegant bouquet with richness and structure crafted in barrel.
