Champagne Jacquesson Cuvée 741

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 Champagnes established houses, under the leadership of brothers Laurent and Jean-Hervé Chiquet, who took over from their father in the 1980s.

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.

Largely based on the 2013 vintage, Cuvee 741 is an outstanding, low-dosage champagne. A marriage of toasty-richness and bristling with freshness. Compact in the palate with undertones of brioche, marzipan, ginger biscuit, with a coursing vein of green apples, tangy fruit character and lively oyster-shell-like minerality. The bouquet is attractive, a mesh of patisserie, honey and apple/citrus character. It pulses over the palate with refreshment factor and light, palate sticking fruit-toastiness sweetness. It’s gulpable and yet fine.
