Andre Jacquart was founded in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger on the Côte des Blancs in 1958, Since 2004, Champagne André Jacquart has been located in Vertus (Champagne Village classified Premier Cru). Major work was undertaken and the fifth generation, represented by Marie Doyard (the grandchild of André Jacquart) and her brother Benoit who stepped in to run the business and inspire it with their own philosophy .Benoit and his father run the winemaking and viticulture and Marie is very much the public face. The estate is one of the largest for a 'grower' – spanning 24ha, with over 200 parcels; 2ha in the Aisne, 2ha in the Aube, 4ha in Vertus and no fewer than 16ha in Le Mesnil, a large holding for one domaine in this prestigious Grand Cru.
