Smoky, with overtones of toasted brioche and nut mixing with flavors of ripe peach, fresh quince, lemon pound cake and candied orange zest. With firm acidity and a core of minerality, this is distinctive, with a long, mouthwatering finish. Disgorged April 2012. Drink now through 2018. 500 cases imported. –AN

""The new release of the Ployez-Jacquemart non-vintage Brut is outstanding on both the nose and palate. The blend is made up of sixty percent pinot noir and pinot meunier, combined with forty percent chardonnay. The bouquet is deep, quite marked by its red grape components and beautifully complex, as it jumps from the glass in a blaze of ripe apple, blood orange, fresh-baked bread, caraway seed, citrus peel and a very complex base of minerality. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and snappy, with a great core of fruit, bright acids, great focus, very fine mousse and exceptional grip on the very long, minerally and intensely flavored finish. There is a depth and flavor authority here that is most rare in Brut NVs, and as good as this wine is today, it will only get better if cellared for a few years. Superb bubbly."
