The NV Brut Cuvee No. 735 caresses the palate from start to finish. Subtle and layered, the 735 is laced with dried pears, flowers and spices, all of which come together in an attractive, mid-weight style with considerable early appeal. I don’t see the 735 improving much in bottle, but it is absolutely delicious today. The 735 is based on the 2007 vintage, with 28% Reserve wines. The blend is 47% Chardonnay, 33% Pinot Noir and 20% Pinot Meunier. Dosage was 3.5 grams per liter. This bottle was disgorged in October 2011. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2015. I have to say, I was totally blown away by the wines I tasted with proprietor Jean-Herve Chiquet at Jacquesson this year. I can’t think of another estate in Champagne that has so successfully transformed itself in just a handful of years. Most Champagne fans are familiar with the house’s 700-series NV wines, which remain absolutely delicious, fairly priced and relatively easy to find. Over the last ten years so, Jacquesson has also stepped up their program of single-vineyard wines. Quantities are tiny and prices are high, but these are now some of the most compelling wines in the entire region. If you haven’t tasted the Jacquesson wines lately, you owe it to yourself to do so.
Cuvée 745 is the reflection of the Jacquesson vineyard, offering a blend with the terroirs of Aÿ, Dizy, Hautvillers, Avize and Oiry. This cuvée is made from 43% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Meunier and 27% Pinot Noir. This cuvée 745 signed Jacquesson is elegant, fruity and well balanced and reveals notes of apples and yellow fruits. The finish is long, mineral and slightly minty.
93+ Points - The Wine Advocate “Based on the 2014 vintage and disgorged with 1.5 grams per litre dosage in July 2018, Jacquesson's NV Extra Brut Cuvée No. 743 continues the house's pioneering series of cuvées that employ reserve wines not in pursuit of a constant "house style" but merely with the aim of complementing each base vintage to maximise its potential. Wafting from the glass with a complex bouquet of walnut oil, dried white flowers, saffron, citrus oil and crisp orchard fruit, along with a delicate top note of fino sherry, it's medium to full-bodied, sapid and incisive, with superb concentration, racy acids and a long, resonant finish. I found it irresistible.” William Kelley

Jacquesson is a renowned Champagne producer that has been crafting exceptional wines since the early 19th century. The house was founded in 1798 by Memmie Jacquesson, and it has been passed down through the family ever since. Today, the house is run by brothers Jean-Hervé and Laurent Chiquet, who have continued the tradition of producing high-quality, terroir-driven Champagnes.

Jacquesson is known for its unique approach to Champagne production. The house focuses on single-vineyard Champagnes, which are made from grapes grown in specific plots of land. This allows the wines to express the unique characteristics of the terroir, resulting in wines that are complex, nuanced, and full of character.

In addition to its focus on terroir, Jacquesson is also known for its use of oak barrels in the production of its Champagnes. The house uses a combination of new and old oak barrels to age its wines, which adds depth and complexity to the final product.

Jacquesson produces a range of Champagnes, including its flagship Cuvée 700, which is a blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier. This wine is aged for at least five years before release, resulting in a wine that is rich, complex, and full of character.

Other notable wines from Jacquesson include its Avize Champ Cain, which is made from grapes grown in the Avize vineyard, and its Dizy Corne Bautray, which is made from grapes grown in the Dizy vineyard. Both of these wines are single-vineyard Champagnes that showcase the unique characteristics of their respective terroirs.

Overall, Jacquesson is a producer that is known for its commitment to quality and its unique approach to Champagne production. Its wines are complex, nuanced, and full of character, making them a must-try for any Champagne lover.

In 1668, Dom Pérignon is said to have discovered how to make sparkling wine; today his technique is used the world over, although Champagne continues to make some of the finest. France’s most northerly wine region, Champagne is now home to 15,000 growers and 290 ‘houses’. A blend of grape varieties is usually required: white Chardonnay to add fruit and elegance, and two reds – Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier – to provide body and backbone.
