In 1974, Jean Chiquet took over the House Jacquesson, founded in 1798, and his two sons Laurent and Jean-Hervé now run this House with its prestigious past.
Indeed, Jacquesson was Napoleon I's favorite Champagne. What's more, it was Adolphe Jacquesson who invented the wire muzzle and the little metal plate that goes on top to prevent the muzzle from sinking into the cork.
Laurent and Jean-Hervé Chiquet also manage their 28-hectare vineyard located in the classified Grand Cru villages of Aÿ, Oiry and Avize and the classified Premier Cru villages of Dizy and Hautvillers. Their vineyard supplies are also supplemented by purchases of Grands Crus and Premiers Crus. The Champagnes Jacquesson are therefore only Champagnes Premier and/or Grands Crus exclusively, a signature of this House's determination to maintain very high quality.
Today Champagne Jacquesson has become part of Artémis Domaines, the wine brands arm of the Artémis investment group founded by François Pinault (Château Latour, Domaine Eugénie, Clos de Tart, Château Grillet, ...). Commercial management of the brand returns to Jean GaranDeau (formerly of Krug), with Jean Hervé Chiquet retaining a seat on the board.
Description Jacquesson Cuvée 741 Dégorgement Tardif.
La Maison Jacquesson also makes a cuvée "700 D.T." for Dégorgement Tardif.
While this is the same wine in origin as the cuvée "700", the aging is twice as long, between 8 and 9 years on lees before being disgorged.
The 741 D.T. is made from 53% Chardonnay, 29% Pinot Noir, 18% Pinot Meunier.
The base year is the 2013 vintage. Vinification is in foudres, on lees with bâtonnage and no filtration.
The wine is aged for 94 months (i.e. disgorgement in May 2022) and no dosage has been carried out.
La robe is pale yellow with golden highlights.
The nose, very precise, is carried by citrus fruits and sweet spices.
The palate confirms maturity and ageing, with notes of Secs fruits, toast and roasted hazelnut.
A racy, flavorful wine that will successfully accompany pan-fried red mullet or a foie gras terrine.
It's a wine that's a pleasure to drink
