Winery Notes:

Produced for the first time with the harvest 2004 to celebrate the 80th anniversary of the House, the Extra Brut Passion is now one of the most famous wines in our range. Offering a richer non-vintage blend, aged for at least 4-5 years in our cellars, it was born from the union of three grapes selected from our premier and grand crus : 44 % Pinot Noir, 18% Meunier, 38 % Chardonnay. In order to make it more complex and structured, we integrated to this blend 25% of wines matured in oak barrels without malolactic fermentation and 75% of wines from the annual harvest. We keep them on the neck « sur pointes » to limit the contact with the yeasts while preserving the advantages of aging before disgorgement. Our Champagnes are disgorged as late as possible to allow them to keep more freshness.

A floral wine, dainty, vibrant and lightly toasted. Very nice complexity, rich but with great aromatic finesse. Long finish without being heavy or thick, with a very elegant honeyed touch. The part of the blend aged in barrels brings a great structure without giving the oaky taste.

Some 25% of the vins clairs that compose Ployez-Jacquemart's NV Extra-Brut Passion were barrel fermented, and it's a richer, more vinous non-vintage blend that's aged—for four or five years—sur pointes rather than sur lattes to prevent excess. Offering up an inviting bouquet of lemon, orange oil, crisp yellow orchard fruit, toasted nuts and honeycomb, it's medium to full-bodied, deep and intense, with a racy spine of acidity, fine concentration at the core, and a penetrating, sapid finish.
