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

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

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.
