At Jacquesson we are fortunate to have some exceptional terroirs, all Premiers and Grands Crus from La Grande Vallee de la Marne and the Cote des Blancs. Our viticulture relies on time-honoured principles, we use only the cuvee from each pressing and have absolutely no hesitation, in difficult vintages, in rejecting juice which doesn’t meet our standards. As a result, our multi-vintage wines retain the best of every harvest and we are proud to be able to say that they faithfully reflect the characteristics of the base vintage whilst benefiting from the addition of some vins de reserve. A beautiful, fruity, juicy Champagne with hints of citrus, floral notes and peach. Made with 47% Chardonnay, 33% Pinot Noir and 20% Pinot Meunier, it is rich and well-rounded and will stand up to extensive cellaring.

Tasting Notes: Regarded as one of the finest Non Vintage Champagne in the world, this refreshing yet intense wine the colour of pale lemon offers a nose of apples, white flowers, and acacia honey. The palate is distintcly dry with citrus, green apple with some tart and character, high acidity and noticable mineralty. Scores: "From the 2012 harvest and five locations in Champagne. The farming is now biological/organic, the winemaking decidedly low intervention. Indeed, the wines sit on lees in barrel for their life outside bottle, unfined and unfiltered. Sulphur addition would be on the very lower side for Champagne at 20ppm added and less than 40ppm total. Effectively, as natural-leaning as Champagne gets these days. All the info is on the label too. This is a super-dooper release too. It’s a marriage of toasty-richness and bristling freshness here. Compact in the palate with undertones of brioche, marzipan, ginger biscuit, with a coursing vein of green apply, tangy fruit character and lively oyster-shell-like minerality. The bouquet is attractive, a mesh of patisserie, honey and apple/citrus character. It pulses through the mouth with refreshment factor and light, palate sticking fruit-yeast sweetness. It’s gulpable and yet fine. It’s stunning stuff. " - 94 points, Mik(more...)
