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.
“2014, our harvest from Aÿ, Dizy & Hautvillers (59%), and from Avize & Oiry (41%). Winter was rainy and exceptionally mild, spring was hot and very dry, whilst July and August were
cool and very wet. A hot, dry and sunny September saved the year. The balance of alcohol and acidity was excellent and the health of the grapes was generally good. However, after picking,
rigorous sorting of some parcels affected by small sources of acid rot was necessary. As a result, the Chardonnays were superb, and the Meuniers, but above all the Pinot Noirs, held their own. The blend is completed with the addition of some reserve wines.” Champagne Jacquesson
