Story: Of the 264,000 bottles produced, 14,574 of the 'Cuvée N°739' were held back to allow them to mature longer on the fine lees. The principle of 'Dégorgement Tardif', the so-called 'late dégorgement', means for the 'Cuvée N°739 DT' that it was disgorged in June 2020 after 8 years of aging.
The 'Cuvée N°739 DT' is based on the 2011 vintage. After a wet, cold winter and a very warm, dry spring, the season ended very pleasantly despite a few frosts. The wines are very balanced, harmonious and homogeneous.
Spontaneously fermented, the base wines are stored in wooden barrels for around 10 months with weekly stirring of the yeast. To then mature in bottles sealed with natural cork for many years in the JACQUESSON cellars.
