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.
