Fizz - JACQUESSON, Cuvée 738, Extra Brut. Champagne

JACQUESSON, Cuvée 738, Extra Brut. Champagne

Alcohol Percentage: 12%
Grape Variety: 61% Chardonnay, 18% Pinot Noir, 21% Pinot Meunier, fermented in oak and kept in barrel for nearly a year before ageing in bottle "on lees" for 4 years
Producer: Based in Dizy, north of Epernay, Jacquesson have 26 hectares of their own vineyards and buy in about a third of their requirement from small growers. They keep their production to around 30,000 cases, in a fanatical attempt to ensure consistently high quality
Cellar Potential: Even better if kept until 2017
Old Bridge Rating: A rich but very dry (2.5g of residual sugar compared to the normal 8 or 9) style. Complex and serious. Until recently I found the Jacquesson style too oaky and heavy; now they have the balance just right
Press Reviews: Micheal Edwards, Decanter Magazine 2015 -
"Admired numbered series of NV which aims to show the distinct character of each successive vintage as a base wine rather than a uniform blend year by year. The 738 is based on 2010, their best effort yet: impressive interplay of complexity, spice, vinosity. Very dry. Class. Rating: 18pts/20"
