Description

The jewel in the crown of Ployez Jacquemarts, there was no denying the excitement in our tasting room when this wine was opened. The bouquet is so eerily reminiscent of Grand Cru white Burgundy, the room went silent, before the delighted murmuring soon began. The blend of 70% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Noir & Meunier was fermented and aged in French oak barrels for 6 months (without malolactic fermentation). An unfathomable 10 years aging on lees in cellars manifests in the wine with incredible richness and depth, but without the merest hint of tiredness thanks to the 'sur pointe' aging technique in bottle. At 18 years old since harvest, Liesse d'Harbonville is quite simply one of the great Champagnes we have ever tried, with toasty, creamy, flavours of hazelnut, red apple and brioche, giving way to endless layers of freshness, discrete aged characters and toasted hazelnut. Better than the majority of Prestige Cuvees we've ever tried, this is a freakish wine that will change the way you think about Champagne.
