Champagne Jacquesson cuvee 739


This Champagne is based around the 2011 harvest. With nearly 3 years ageing before release, this wonderful cuvee develops real character, and a serious 'Champagne' nose. 

Jancis Robinson gives this 17.5/20:

The house Brut NV, with an idiosyncratic approach. Most adjust their Brut NV each year to make a consistent ‘house style’. Jacquesson make the ‘best’ wine they can each year but reflecting the conditions, using reserve wines and varying blends of grapes and vineyards. The first year of this new approach was 2000, with Cuvée 728. Cuvée 739 is 2011 harvest base year. While some 274,000 bottles were made of this, 80% of Jacquesson’s grapes are now their own. 57% Chardonnay, 21% Pinot Noir, 22% Meunier. 31% reserves. All from grands and premiers crus in the Côtes des Blancs and Marne. All base wines fermented in large old oak and aged on lees with a little bâtonnage. No fining, no filtration. No cold stabilisation. Disgorged July 2014. 3.5 g/l dosage. Dark straw. Very mature nose with masses of development. Exceptionally 'serious' multilayered champagne. Really too fascinating and demanding to sip as an aperitif.
