Champagne "Granite" Extra Brut
Champagne Ployez-Jacquemart celebrated its 90th anniversary in 2020. To mark the occasion, Laurence Ployez began planning years ago, a special one-time release to celebrate : Cuvée "Granite". “Granite” combines some of the very best vintages that they have ever made, including 1976, 1982, 1988, 1996, 1999, and 2000 to name a few, to create a balance of power and complexity.
61% of Chardonnay from Mesnil sur Oger, Puisieulx, Cramant, Cuis, Bisseuil, Tauxière, Grauves
31% Pinot Noir from Mailly Champagne
8% Meunier from Ludes

*The base vintage is 2013 and makes up approximately 40% of the final blend. The vintage 2000 is approximately 20% of the blend and then the proportion goes down among the remaining eleven vintages. The blend was created in the winter of 2014.
