We’ve always offered Jacquesson’s numbered cuvées in the past and when the opportunity came up to list it again we jumped at the chance to taste a sample. I say taste a sample although drink may be a better word – we’ve never seen a bottle disappear like it although the tasting happening at the end of a long week certainly assisted it’s departure! Amazingly moreish and whilst it’s very dry it has incredible weight to it.
“Our 2013 harvest from Ay, Dizy, Hautvillers, Avize and Oiry. The winter was very cold and snowy, with spring and early summer staying cold and very damp, causing coulure and millerandage as well as delaying the flowering. However, August and September were warmer and drier giving us a late, but excellent, harvest. The Pinot Noir from Ay and Dizy and the Chardonnays from Avize were particularly successful. The harvest was complemented by the addition of some reserve wines.” Jacquesson
