Tasting notes: Distinct grapefruit and ripe apple flavours with strong lees character. Packed full of fruit, lots of apple and lemons with hints of gooseberry all combined with hints of both toasty oak and creamy pastries with underlying freshness from the acidity, all very well balanced.
About the winery: Jacquesson is a true craftsman's house worn by Brothers Laurent and Jean-Herve Chiquet, who took over from their father in the 1980’s. It is often referred as the nowadays Champagne revelation. Jacquesson vineyards are located in the Grand Cru villages of Ay, Avize and Oiry and in the Premier Cru villages of Dizy, Hautvillers and Mareuil-sur-Ay. About 15% of the fruit is sourced from growers in these villages as well as the Grand Cru village of Chouilly and the Premier Cru village Cumières.
The cuvee 700 concept is unique in Champagne and is the opposite of a non-vintage wine! The brothers seeks excellence rather than homogeneity and 'house style', in respect for the character of the vintage. The vineyards are mostly sloping, facing east, south or south-west where the chalk lies at varying depths below the soil.
