Voted third best Champagne house (after Bollinger and Krug!) by La Revue du Vin de France, Jacquesson is a top name. Their wines are renowned for their minerality, purity and ageing ability. From Grand Cru and 1er Cru fruit, this is remarkable fizz.
"Attractive grilled peach and nectarine fruits with mellow, spiced, woody notes in the background"
James Suckling 92 Points
Critic Tyson Stelzer said of Jacquesson “There are no secrets here, just great Champagnes” in his 2016/17 Champagne Guide. Run by brothers Laurent and Jean-Hervé Chiquet, this Champagne house is quite unique. They don’t strive to produce a house style, but to bring out the qualities of a vintage. Perversely, however, they don’t produce a vintage Champagne. Instead they use wine mostly from a single year then add around 30% reserve wines to flatter the vintage and add complexity, hence the 700 series that distinguishes a different blend, but not the specific year. If they have a particular house style, it is one of uncompromising quality, fruit purity and minerality. For this they use indigenous yeasts and prefer no filtering. A real treat.
