Ployez Jacquemart BdB 2004

Ployez Jacquemart, Blanc de Blanc 2004, Champagne

12% abv, €37 ex cellar (2013), BBR £50 (2013).

WSET style tasting note
Appearance – clear and bright, pale intensity gold, showing small-sized bubbles and tears.

Nose – clean on the nose, with a medium (+) intensity, developing, with aromas of toast, warm dough, warm honey, baked apple, and hints of ripe citrus – grapefruit.

Palate – a dry wine, with high acidity, no tannin, medium alcohol and a medium body, with medium (+) intensity, with flavours of toast, biscuit, a malty note, stewed apple, quince, roasted almonds, and a hint of spice, and a slight mushroomy note on the finish.  A creamy mousse, with a long persistence, and a long length.

Quality – a very good quality harmonious wine, with high acidity and pale colour indicating chardonnay; a complex wine with concentrated flavour and aroma and a well-developed range of rich autolytic notes; there is a perfect balance between acidity and alcohol + residual sugar, which counters the richness of the wine, which has a long lingering length.
