Jacquesson is one of Champagne’s most venerable houses, not only predating Krug, but giving birth to it, when in 1843 Johann-Joseph Krug left Jacquesson to form his own house.
But despite more than 200 years of history, Jacquesson has become a revolutionary among Champagne’s established houses, under the leadership of brothers Laurent and Jean-Hervé Chiquet, who took over from their father in the 1980’s.
Since then, the house has adopted a herbicide-free, terroir-based philosophy. It also retired, after 150 years, its non-vintage blend and replaced it with a groundbreaking single-vintage-based cuvée, which changes yearly. And next came its terroir-based cuvées, an unprecedented move for a traditional house.
Cuvée 743 was created from the splendid 2015 harvest and is characterised by perfectly ripened and healthy grapes with lively, balancing acidity. A rigorous hand-sorting ensures the highest quality fruit.
A powerful, complex and mineral cuvée. This is a champagne for connoisseurs; a gastronomic cuvée which is already delicious but can be cellared up to 4 years.
