WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING
“Disgorged in May 2019 with 1.5 grams per liter dosage, the 2009 Extra-Brut Grand Cru Avize - Champ Caïn is showing beautifully, wafting from the glass with aromas of pear, blanched almonds, freshly baked bread and mandarin. Medium to full-bodied, pillowy and precise, it's elegant and refined, with a pinpoint mousse, discreet depth at the core and a long, chalky finish. Beautifully balanced with minimal dosage, it shows the results the Jacquesson brothers' viticulture were already delivering over a decade ago. ” 94 points, William Kelley, The Wine Advocate
Jacquesson is a true craftsman's house worn by Brothers Laurent and Jean-Herve Chiquet, who took over from their father in the 1980’s. It is often referred as the nowadays Champagne revelation. Jacquesson vineyards are located in the Grand Cru villages of Ay, Avize and Oiry and in the Premier Cru villages of Dizy, Hautvillers and Mareuil-sur-Ay. About 15% of the fruit is sourced from growers in these villages as well as the Grand Cru village of Chouilly and the Premier Cru village Cumières.
