WHAT THE CRITICS SAY
Based on the 2010 vintage and disgorged in June 2019 with 0.75 grams per liter dosage, the NV Extra-Brut Cuvée No. 738 Dégorgement Tardif opens in the glass with a pretty bouquet of dried white flowers, citrus oil, fresh bread and crisp orchard fruit. Medium-bodied, fine-boned and precise, it's delicate and charming, with a pinpoint mousse, lively acids and a mineral finish.
William Kelley, the Wine Advocate
Jacquesson is a true craftsman's house worn by Bothers 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.
The cuvee 700 concept is unique in Champagne and is the opposite of a non-vintage wine! The brothers seeks excellence rather than homogeneity and 'house style', in respect for the character of the vintage. The vineyards are mostly sloping, facing east, south or south-west where the chalk lies at varying depths below the soil.
