Jacquesson - Cuvée No. 743

Tasting notes

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

More about the Producer

  • Jacquesson


    Onshore Cellars - ICONIC Producer

    Champagne Jacquesson is well known among wine lovers around the world. The estate belongs to the Chiquet family, who bought it in 1974. The Chiquet brothers, Jean-Hervé and Jean-Laurent, have been revolutionising Champagne for the last 25 years.

    Their vines are located in the Grande Vallée de la Marne and in the Côte des Blancs. In total, Champagne Jacquesson covers approximately 30-hectares, which provides about 80% of the grapes that they need to produce their wines. The rest of the fruit is bought from local suppliers based in the same Crus, allowing them to keep close control over the quality of the product.

    Despite their success, the volumes of production have not increased. Their strategy is to focus on creating unique vintages with a strong personality that are capable of expressing each plot of land. Their main goal is to allow the vines to reveal the characteristics of each parcel and to show the influence of the minerals in the soil on the fruit. For that reason, they use mainly organic products to treat the land, they short prune, the soil is ploughed and they use traditional growing techniques.

    " ...terroir, even great terroir, is worth nothing unless properly looked after.” Chiquet brothers
