Description & Technical Information
-
The house was founded in 1798 by Memmie Jacquesson. Jacquesson is small producer based in Dizy, Champagne. Only Champagne Salon is smaller of the elite houses. Production is around 280,000 bottles per annum and are made with 78% of grapes from their own 28 hectare estate, the rest is bought in from growers. The 28ha domaine comprises 11ha in Avize and Oiry, some 13ha spread over Aÿ, Hautvillers, Dizy and Mareuil-su-Aÿ and a further 4ha in the Vallée de l'Ardre (a tributary of the Vesle, north-west of the Marne). Current owners, brothers, Jean-Hervé and Laurent Chiquet recently changed methods to be organic, almost all Jacquesson wines ferment in old, large-sized oak barrels, which yield little wood aroma to the wine. Instead of being limited to labelling their non vintage champagnes NV, Jacquesson have decided to change the name of their cuvée every year. The first cuvée under this new concept was 740, created from an internal bookkeeping system.

The red grapes come from chalk-rich vineyards in Aÿ, a Grand Cru, and Dizy and Hautvillers both Premiers Crus in the Marne and the Chardonnay comes from two Grand Crus in the Côte des Blancs, Avize and Oiry. Traditional growing techniques are employed with little or no soil enrichment whilst most treatments are organic. Harvest was carried out by hand between the 14th and 27th of September. The D.T. refers to Degorgement Tardive or late disgorgement, so this is the same blend as the regular release from Jaquesson, just kept on the lees for at least five additional years and the base year is the 2010 vintage.

Weather: With the lowest temperatures since 1996, the first part of the year contrasted with the entire decade. Winter frosts and a cool spring were reminders of the vineyard’s northerly latitude. The summer was hot, but not excessively so, and infrequent rain confirmed a particularly dry year. Suddenly, in mid-August, everything changed. The equivalent of two months of rain fell in just two days. With the heat and the water, maturation was fast and generous, but the harvest began with botrytis mould attacking the Pinot Noir grapes. As in 1995, the grapes had an elevated balance, at the same time sweet and acidic, but some parcels had to be left out and others sorted in order to bring out the best in a vintage rich in contrasts.

Expert Reviews
91/100
William Kelley
“Medium-bodied, fine-boned and precise, it's delicate and charming, with a pinpoint mousse, lively acids and a mineral finish.”
94/100
Antonio Galloni MW
“So fresh and vibrant in the glass, the 738 dazzles from start to finish. Lemon confit, white flowers, almond and dried orchard fruit all race out of the glass. The Dégorgement Tardif was aged on cork and spent ninety-six months on the lees, which works so well in preserving the wine's freshness and explosive energy. Time in the glass brings out the wine's tension and vibrancy.”
