Champagne Jacquesson has existed since 1789, in the hands of the Chiquet family since 1974. The two brothers Jean-Hervé and Laurent have been running the small but very renowned champagne house since 1988.
The concept of terroir is omnipresent here: the two managing directors attach great importance to precise work in the vineyard - both in their own locations and in those from which grapes are purchased. Single-layer champagnes are just as much a part of the repertoire as classic cuvées.
In 2000, Jacquesson began to give the basic cuvée the consecutive number 700, so the current cuvée is always an expression of the individual year as the basis with a supplementary share of reserve wines. The aging of the wines takes place in oak barrels in contact with the yeast, the dosage for all champagnes is in the extra brut range.
Anyone who now suspects that the champagnes would be woody as a result are wrong: they are elegant, tight and powerful individualists across the board, who often benefit from a few years of bottle aging.
