IWC 91
Stephen Tanzer's IWC - Stephen Tanzer's IWC, November 2002
Very bright, subtle nose of toast, minerals, spices, mushroom and earth. Penetrating, crisp and very dry, with racy acids giving the mineral and toast flavors rapier-like definition. Very cool, stony flavors: like walking... Very bright, subtle nose of toast, minerals, spices, mushroom and earth. Penetrating, crisp and very dry, with racy acids giving the mineral and toast flavors rapier-like definition. Very cool, stony flavors: like walking into a blizzard. With its powerful minerality and bracing acids, this stylish Champagne reminded me of a top 1993 white Burgundy. Will never be a particularly pliant wine, but should gain in complexity over the next decade. 91+ - Stephen Tanzer

Winery

Jacquesson

Jacquesson is a champagne house with land holdings in two main areas - the Grande Vallee de la Marne (Ay, Dizy, Hautvillers) and the Cote des Blancs (Avize and Oiry). 80% of their grapes are estate, the rest coming from neighbors located in the same Crus. Traditional growing techniques and manual harvesting is practiced. Vinification is carried out in oak casks to allow the wine to breathe. Fermentation usually lasts for three to four months.

In addition to four single vineyard wines, Champagne Jacquesson, produces the Cuvee 700 range- blended wine coming from their three Grand Crus and two Premier Crus holdings. There is also a Cuvee 700 Degorgement Tardif which is aged for nine years before release.
