We have just landed our 2014 allocation of Champagne Jacquesson. The latest 737 is based on the 2009 vintage, a lush and more exotic cuvée that probably offers drinkability before the taut 736. There were no single-vineyard cuvées disgorged this year, except for the unique and long-ageing Dizy Terre Rosé 2008.
Once again all the Jacquesson cuvées are made in an Extra-Brut style.
‘Jacquesson is one of the most interesting houses today, giving fantastically good value for money. I am so impressed by their latest release that I awarded them 5 stars!’ writes Richard Juhlin, regarded as the foremost Champagne expert and author of numerous Champagne books. Jacquesson is one of only 6 houses he awards 5 stars, including Krug, Roederer and Selosse!
‘I have to say, I was totally blown away by the wines I tasted with proprietor Jean-Herve Chiquet at Jacquesson this year. I can’t think of another estate in Champagne that has so successfully transformed itself in just a handful of years.’ Antonio Galloni of the Wine Advocate
