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.

In recognition of the subtle differences between each annual non-vintage creation, Champagne Jacquesson number their non-vintage cuvée every year. Jacquesson Cuvée 741 is based on the 2013 harvest with grapes originating from Ay, Dizy, Hautvillers, Avize and Oiry. The Pinot Noir from Ay and Dizy and the Chardonnays from Avize were particularly successful in 2013. The base harvest is complemented by the addition of 20% reserve wines from the previous two years. The champagne was vinified on the lees in oak barrels with no filtration or fining.

212,788 bottles, 8,806 magnums and 302 jeroboams were produced.

Weather: The winter was very cold and snowy, with spring and early summer staying cold and very damp, causing coulure and millerandage as well as delaying the flowering. As a result, 2013 was one of the latest harvests on record since the unforgettable 1988 vintage. After difficult flowering in July, September was once again the saviour as the whole month was dry and warm with continious sunny spells.

“Based on 2013. Disgorged June 2018. Dosage 2.5 g/l.
Very fine bead. Nicely integrated. With that wild beeriness in evidence and still quite chewy. A heady floral note. But a bit more developed.”

“Base harvest 2013 from Aÿ, Dizy, Hautvillers, Avize and Oiry, plus some reserve wines. Vinification and élevage on lees in oak foudres with no filtration or fining. Dosage 2.5 g/l. Released 2018.
Classy concentration immediately apparently on the nose. Lovely lacy texture but with density underneath. This is very smart stuff. Just a pleasure to drink now with great balance. Maybe not amazing persistence but I challenge anyone not to enjoy this.”
