Ployez Jacquemart Cuvee Liesse d'Harbonville 1998
70% chardonnay, 15-25% pinot noir, 5-15% pinot meunier; fermented in oak. The crown jewel, produced using only exceptional grapes from exceptional years. Primary fermentation is in 225-litre oak casks (two to three-year-old Meursault barrels), where the wine stays for six months, which builds great richness, beautiful structure and complexity. There is no malolactic fermentation, which lets the wine retain its finesse and elegance. Aged in bottle in the cellars for a minimum of 10 years. Benefits from decanting.

Bruce Sanderson: A firm edge, framing its vanilla, toast and grapefruit flavours. On the dry side, with a bracing finish, so give it a little time or enjoy with delicate seafood dishes. 90/2010-25.
