Vinous July 2015

2005 Ployez-Jacquemart Extra-Brut Vintage Blanc de Blancs 93

The 2005 Vintage Blanc de Blancs is beautifully focused in the glass, with a touch more freshness than the straight Vintage wine. Intense smoky and mineral-inflected notes open into pear, white peach and slate. The 2005 is tightly wound and even a bit austere, with a slightly reductive personality, yet all the elements are in the right place.

2005 Ployez-Jacquemart Extra Brut Vintage 92

A rich, expansive Champagne, the 2005 Vintage is wonderfully expressive today. Succulent peach, orchard fruit, candied lemon, almonds, ginger and sage are nicely delineated. I don’t see the 2005 being a long-term ager, but it is super-expressive today, with gorgeous resonance and an appealing open-knit personality that will provide plenty of drinking pleasure for at least the next handful of years.

1999 Ployez-Jacquemart Brut Liesse D’Harbonville 92

The 1999 Liesse D’Harbonville is distinctly floral and savory, with the fruit pushed to the background. Understated and at times even a bit ethereal, the 1999 graces the palate with an appealing array of candied lemon, eau de vie, wild flowers, dried pears and spices. This mid-weight Champagne is a touch eccentric, but certainly not lacking in either personality or character.
