Wine Region:Champagne - France
Grape:Chardonnay 45%, Meunier 20%, Pinot Noir 35%.
Tasting notes:The fruit of Jacquesson labors was a crop of healthy, mature grapes with particular mention for the Pinot Noirs which were super successful. Reserve wines from the previous 700 Cuvées complete the blend.
Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate 94 / 100
“Disgorged in February 2021 with 0.75 grams per liter dosage, the NV Extra-Brut Cuvée No. 744 is based on the 2016 vintage. Exhibiting complex aromas of orange oil, crisp stone fruit, fenugreek and subtle hints of yellow Chartreuse, it's medium to full-bodied, pillowy and seamless, with terrific depth at the core, lively acids and a pinpoint mousse. Simultaneously vivid but replete with sapid nuance, this new release throws into relief all the work the Jacquesson brothers have made in the vineyards and cellar over the last two decades. Best after 2021.”

“Very attractive aromas of cooked apple with fresh brioche. Bread dough and some lemon rind, too. Medium to full body with a creamy and refined mouth feel and a rounded finish. Some almond and cooked apple in the aftertaste. Very drinkable now. 45% chardonnay, 35% pinot noir and 20% pinot meunier.”
About the winery: The Jacquesson champagne house is based in Dizy, in the Marne, 3 km north of Epernay and about 20 km south of Reims. It has nearly 30 hectares in production, mainly dominated by Chardonnay, a grape variety joined by Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. The vines are located in two distinct vineyards of Champagne: the Grande Vallée de la Marne and the Côte des Blancs, exclusively in villages classified as Premier Cru and Grand Cru. The approximately 15% of grapes purchased from other winegrowers represent about 8 hectares, which are located on neighboring parcels, also classified as Premier Cru and Grand Cru. Domaine Jacquesson alone covers more than 80% of its grape needs. In the Marne Valley, Jacquesson has vineyards in :
