Based on vintage 2008 with 2007 and 2006 (totaling a third) in supporting roles, and 53% Chardonnay; 29% Pinot; 18% Meunier, the Jacquesson NV Extra Brut Cuvee 736 delivers a captivating performance in which prominent acidity, bone-dryness and underlying firmness that in lesser hands or from lesser material would come off as spare and austere, here instead blossom into an irresistibly mouthwatering wealth of scents of flavors. Lemon, grapefruit and white peach tinged with their pits and with pungent yeastiness are further allied with hickory nut bittersweetness, freshly milled cornmeal, mint, chalk, and brine both on the pungent nose and vibrant, gripping palate. Expansive yet productively tense and consummately refreshing, this finishes with cheek-pinching, salivary gland-milking intensity. It should prove rewarding to follow over at least the next 3-5 years, as well as from any subsequent disgorgements. - David Schildknecht

With just the right amount of bottle aging, this almost bone-dry Champagne is tight, steely while also hinting at the beginnings of toastiness. It is also full of crisp apple, lemon and pink grapefruit fruitiness, well integrated into the taut texture. Drink now for freshness, age for even more toastiness.

Note that this is a re-review as the sample bottle reviewed in Issue 53 proved problematic. A cool, pure and restrained nose of citrus, green apple and soft yeast nuances serves as an elegant introduction to the equally refined flavors that possess a wonderfully fine mouth feel as the supporting mousse is perfectly integrated. As the Extra Brut designation would suggest this is quite dry but in contrast to many examples of the genre the Cuvée 736 is not especially austere. Moreover, relatively few zero dosage examples are as refined as this one and this could accurately, and aptly, be described as a Champagne of finesse. Note that while it could easily be enjoyed now, Jacquesson fans know that the wines age beautifully. Outstanding ♥

Intense aromas of nectarine, pear skin, chamomile and toasty lees are enlivened by bitter citrus zest and mineral elements. Dense, seamless and powerful, with fresh pit fruit and candied orange flavors complicated by notes of anise and buttered toast. The mineral nuance comes back strong on the finish, which features a suave, expansive floral quality. This wine got a very low dosage of 1.5 grams per liter.

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.
