Champagne Jacquesson Description

Champagne Jacquesson, a house not to be missed

It is one of the oldest houses in Champagne and also one of the most atypical. Indeed, since the Chiquet brothers have been at the head of the House of Jacquesson, they have imposed their style and their original conception of champagne. The famous Cuvée "700", which replaces the traditional "Bruts sans année", totally embodies their ability to reinvent champagne. Great wines with character and strong personality: this is the strength of this "small" house that has become a true reference.

History of the House of Jacquesson

The House of Jacquesson was founded by Claude and Memmie Jacquesson in 1798 in Châlons-sur-Marne, a town that has since become Châlons-en-Champagne, the prefecture of the Marne. It changed names and managers several times. In 1832, the bottles were sold under the label Jacquesson & Fils. And from then on, the Chiquet family, the current owners, are also mentioned. Jacquesson champagnes have enjoyed a strong aura from the start. Indeed, their ambassador was Napoleon I, who even awarded a gold medal to the house's cellars. This is also associated with the wirehood, patented in 1844 by Adolphe Jacquesson, Memmie's son. Thanks to this wire cage associated with a stamped iron plate, the cork of the bottle is now well maintained, avoiding gas and liquid losses. In 1974, Jean Chiquet bought the estate from the de Tassigny family, who had owned it since 1925. His sons, Jean-Hervé and Laurent Chiquet, now run this Champagne house. The two men revolutionised the estate: yields were almost halved, oak barrels were favoured, and farming methods were both traditional and organic. They also innovated by offering numbered cuvée wines rather than "bruts without a year", as well as parcel-based cuvées honouring the specific qualities of a terroir.

James Suckling: 93 Points

"A little more bright and vibrant than the 744, with notes of poached pear, baked apple, grapefruit, lemon rind and pistachio. Fine bubbles with crisp acidity and a pure, fruity core. Very drinkable. 0.75g/L dosage. Disgorged January 2022. Drink now. (7/18/22)"
