Champagne Jacquesson Cuvee 738 D.T. Extra Brut
Decanter 92 Points Highly Recommended - October 2020
'Based on 2010 vintage, this possesses a stunning, yet complex bouquet of liquorice, apricot, smoke with menthol and fresh notes. With 96 months on lees, the palate is pure with a creamy texture, but perfectly balanced with remarkable overall precision. An excellent choice for drinking now and over the next few years. Disgorged in June 2019 and has a dosage of 0.75g/l'. Decanter Magazine October 2020
Champagne Jacquesson Cuvee 738 D.T. Extra Brut - From the superb 2010 vintage. Floral aromas mixed with brioche notes. The palate is distinguished by great freshness, with minerality and excellent length. One of the oldest houses in champagne, it has become one of the region’s superstar names in the 21st century through its quality focus & numbered NV cuvées.
Based in Dizy, the house of Jacquesson was founded in 1798 by Memmie Jacquesson, who produced the house’s first sparkling wine that year. Memmie’s son Adolphe continued his work and in 1844 invented and patented the muselet, which is the cork wire basket that is still in use today. After Adolphe’s death, the house saw 50 years of decline until it was resurrected in 1925 by the Tassigny family. Finally, in 1974 Champagne Jacquesson was purchased by the Chiquet family (today under the watchful eye of brothers Jean-Herve and Laurent) and there started the quest to turn this Champagne house into one of the highest quality producers in the region.
