The 2008 Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs is a powerful wine. Intense chalky and savory notes are at the heart of this expressive Blanc de Blancs from vineyards in Cuis, Bisseuil, Tauxières and Ludes. Readers will find an especially potent, structured Blanc de Blancs built on real vinous intensity and power. The 2008 has the depth to drink well with just about anything at the dinner table, and the pedigree to develop for years to come in bottle. I would open the 2008 a few hours in advance, as it is pretty tightly wound. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, December 2019)

Just a nice phenomenal champagne. Has everything I am looking for, big, bold and great acidity with just a touch of dosage.

We visited Ployer-Jacquemart last month and shipped two bottles of this B-d-B among other wines. I wish we had shipped more. It drank better than I remembered it to be. Toasty, fresh and effervescent and we’ll structured. The extra brut even seemed to have mellowed. An underrated champagne.

it must be the combo of P-J vinification and 08 fruit but it’s a fabulous quaff with pure beautiful Chardonnay fruit—lots of adjectives to throw at it but the finesse and structure made it a drink punching above its price point and well worth cellaring. I am impressed. Bought it when visiting in Champagne at the house. And bought more today before posting this.
