OUR NOTES

The Cuvée 744 consists of a blend of wines from the same vintage 2016, completed with approximately 30% vins de reserve stored in the cellar for several years.In this process, it becomes essential to capture the best of each vintage while avoiding denying the variations specific to each harvest. Once again for this blend, the brothers Chiquet managed to make a perfect assemblage: 55% of the best Pinot Noir and Meunier grapes from vineyards around the villages of Ay, Dizy and Hautvillers, and 45% Chardonnay grapes from vineyards in the villages of Avize and Oiry.

The base wines were spontaneously fermented and aged in wooden barrels. The sunriped grapes never require more than an extra-brut dosage for you to fully enjoy their terroir style, this one has 0.75g/l.

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.

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.
