Jacquesson Champagne Cuvee
Jacquesson Champagne Cuvee 743 Extra Brut...$87.99
Based on the 2015 vintage and disgorged in August 2019 without dosage, the Chiquet brothers' NV Extra-Brut Cuvée No. 743 is showing nicely, offering up inviting aromas of freshly baked bread, crisp yellow orchard fruit, beeswax and dried white flowers. Medium to full-bodied, pillowy and precise, it's elegantly fleshy, with an enveloping core of fruit, a pinpoint mousse and a nicely defined, saline finish.
Rated 91/100 The Wine Advocate
Jacquesson Champagne Cuvee 744 Extra Brut...$87.99
Very attractive aromas of cooked apple with fresh brioche. Bread dough and some lemon rind, too. Medium to full body with a creamy and refined mouth feel and a rounded finish. Some almond and cooked apple in the aftertaste. Very drinkable now. 45% chardonnay, 35% pinot noir and 20% pinot meunier.
