Leading French wine magazine La Revue du Vin de France agrees, ranking Ployez-Jacquemart 14th of all champagne houses -- the only boutique producer in the top 25. Total annual production is less than 6,000 cases.
Ployez-Jacquemart is a family run champagne house, established by the husband and wife team of Marcel Ployez and Yvonne Jacquemart in 1930. The winemaker now is their granddaughter, Laurence Ployez. Deep-seated pride in her product and heritage are the cornerstones of a traditional approach to champagne production.
Winemaker Laurence Ployez - “We follow a very strict policy of quality, not quantity. Our mission is to leave the structure of each wine intact, letting the true character and personality of the harvest shine.”
The trademark of champagnes from Ployez-Jacquemart is brilliant fruit that doesn’t need high dosage -- as some producers do to compensate for quality deficiencies in their grapes. The wines are markedly elegant, not undergoing malolactic fermentation so they retain their acid, and show great finesse thanks to an extra-long maturation on lees in deep, cold cellars resulting in the perfect mousse which the house is renowned for.
