Champagne Jacquesson Cuvee 743
Decanter 92 Points Highly Recommended - October 2020
'This offers an elegant and toasty bouquet with pear, dried flowers and white fruit aromas. On the palate, this is a pure and clean Champagne with some delicacy and floral aspects. This cuvée is even more elegant with a bit of air. Grapes are sourced from Aÿ and Dizy (60% of the crop) and Avize and Oiry (the remaining 40%). No dosage. The base wine is from the 2015 vintage'.

Champagne Jacquesson Cuvee 743 - From the outstanding 2015 vintage. The 2015 harvest was very homogenous and produced perfectly ripe and healthy grapes, in reasonable quantities, with a sufficient level of acidity. A great Brut Nature champagne (with no sugar addition) A splendid vintage. 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.
