Champagne Jacquesson

Champagne Jacqueson can date its history back to 1798 when it was reputedly a favourite of Napoleon. It stayed with the family until 1974, when it was bought by brothers Jean-Hervé and Laurent Chiquet. Since their acquisition, the house has enjoyed a rise to prominence thanks to its high quality and slightly unconventional champagnes. Contrary to most Champagne houses, there is no clearly defined non-vintage style. Instead each vintage is celebrated for its uniqueness, and marked on the label, making each cuvée an insightful glimpse into the main vintage in the blend. The variation and percentages of the base wines varies considerably. There is also a range of single-vineyard wines plus a vintage Blanc de Blancs from Avize. Jean-Hervé and Laurent have moved their vineyards to organic farming and increased oak ageing. Their style is dry, preferring zéro dosage, and their Champagnes age beautifully. Jacquesson is one of the leading Champagne houses, whose quality and finesse is evident in every bottle.

More About Champagne Jacquesson

Voted the third best of all Champagne Houses (after Bollinger and Krug) in 2005 La Revue Des Vins De France, Champagne Jacquesson is undoubtedly one of Champagne’s outstanding producers,

Champagne jacquesson makes low-dosage Champagnes of wonderful elegance and remarkable complexity from only Grand and Premier Cru sites. Brothers Jean-Hervé and Laurent Chiquet place a huge emphasis on the quality of the vineyards. Those grapes that are bought only come from plots which border the estates, and allow the brothers to oversee every part of the growing process, finally delivering the fruit to their own presses. Such is this commitment to progression and excellence that the production of Jacquesson has fallen by 40% over the last five years, as they concentrate on quality over quantity.

The wines that result are each a beautiful expression of their exceptional terroirs, and, even for the ‘non-vintage’ cuvées, of the qualities of the year on which the wine is based.
