Description & Technical Information
-
In recognition of the subtle differences between each annual non-vintage creation, Champagne Jacquesson number their non-vintage cuvée every year. Jacquesson Cuvée 744 is based on the 2016 harvest with grapes originating from Ay, Dizy, Hautvillers, Avize and Oiry. The Pinot Noir from Ay and Dizy were particularly successful in 2016. Picking started at Jacquesson on 19th September and ended on 6th of October. The dominant harvest of 2016 is complemented by the addition of 30% reserve wines from the previous three years. The champagne was vinified on the lees in oak barrels with no filtration or fining. 244,350 bottles, 9,905 magnums and 300 jeroboams were produced.

Weather: In 2016 Winter and Spring were extremely wet; mild to start with but temperatures fell at the beginning of February and remained low with some serious frosts in late April. The end of Spring was sunny but cool, followed by a Summer which was very hot and very dry. Picking began on 19 September and ended on 6th of October, including a break of several days to make allowance for some late ripening parcels.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: 100% Grand & Premier Cru | Chardonnay: Avize & Oiry | Pinot Noir: Ay, Hautvillers & Dizy
