JACQUESSON Champagne Extra Brut "Cuvee 738" Degorgement Tardif NV

Wine Region: Champagne - France

Grape: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier

Tasting notes: "Based on the 2010 vintage and disgorged in June 2019 with 0.75 grams per liter dosage, the NV Extra-Brut Cuvée No. 738 Dégorgement Tardif opens in the glass with a pretty bouquet of dried white flowers, citrus oil, fresh bread and crisp orchard fruit. Medium-bodied, fine-boned and precise, it's delicate and charming, with a pinpoint mousse, lively acids and a mineral finish." - William Kelly, Wine Advocate

About the winery: The Maison has had the name of its founder since 1978. The Jacquesson Champagne was Napoleon's favourite and in 1810 the Emperor gave the Maison one of the most significant acknowledgement of that time, a gold metal for the beauty and richness of the caves. Today the Maison Jacquesson & Fils is proud to follow the path traced by its glorious founders and concentrates its efforts in annual production of 350,000 bottles, with non-industrial methods, obtaining the higher quality standards ever. Grapes come mainly from owned vineyards (28hectares), 11 which are located in Cote de Blancs, in Avize. A rigorous vinification, followed by excellent ageing, lead to Vintage Cuvees, sold not according to their chronological order but their maturity. A low dosage preserves the fineness and pureness of the wine.
