What the experts say...

"Coup de ♥ de l'année : Le dernier tirage de la cuvée brut sans année porte donc le numéro 739. Construit autour des vins du millésime 2011, avec un ajout de plus de 30 % de vins de réserve et un dosage à 3,5 g/l, l'ensemble est épuré et élancé, et offre une belle complexité.", RVF 2017

Information about domain Jacquesson

Jacquesson champagnes are a long established name and the house is one of the most reputed among connoisseurs. Claude Jacquesson founded the company in Dizy in 1798. From the very beginning its champagne was reputed to be the Emperor's favourite (Napoleon 1). This was also the house which patented the cork wire in 1844 and helped establish Maison Krug. A succession of owners ran Maison Jacquesson until 1974 when it was acquired by the Chiquet family. Today, Jean Chiquet's sons, Laurent and Jean-Hervé, run the company with panache. The vineyards are planted on around 30 hectares in Avize, Aÿ, Dizy and Hautvillers and complemented by regular and carefully selected supplies of bought-in grapes. Jacquesson champagnes have a strong personality (especially the single parcel cuvées) and stand out for their low sugar levels, intensity and distinction. This house has gradually become the standard bearer for high-quality champagne, expressing the illustrious potential of its terroirs with incredible fidelity, reducing dosage to a strict minimum and allowing its cuvées the time they need to mature before putting them on the market. Because of this, the wines (primarily vinified in wood and dosed at Extra-Brut level) always have a distinct and sometimes surprising character. Production has reduced considerably since the Chiquet family took over Maison Jacquesson. Every year, it gives its non-vintage Brut (BSA) a number - 738, 739 etc. This is a way to identify the style of each vintage and to encourage fans to age the wines. All Jacquesson cuvées age beautifully, whether late-disgorged or not. This sublime champagne house is one of our favourites in the region.
