The house Brut NV, with an idiosyncratic approach. Most adjust their Brut NV each year to make a consistent ‘house style’. Jacquesson make the ‘best’ wine they can each year but reflecting the conditions, using reserve wines and varying blends of grapes and vineyards. The first year of this new approach was 2000, with Cuvée 728. Cuvée 739 is 2011 harvest base year. While some 274,000 bottles were made of this, 80% of Jacquesson’s grapes are now their own. 57% Chardonnay, 21% Pinot Noir, 22% Meunier. 31% reserves. All from grands and premiers crus in the Côtes des Blancs and Marne. All base wines fermented in large old oak and aged on lees with a little bâtonnage. No fining, no filtration. No cold stabilisation. Disgorged July 2014. 3.5 g/l dosage. Dark straw. Very mature nose with masses of development. Exceptionally 'serious' multilayered champagne. Really too fascinating and demanding to sip as an aperitif. Jun 16, www.jancisrobsinson.com, Drink: 2014-2020
The wood has worked some magic here, adding a savory edge to otherwise sweetly fragrant fruits, dried flowers, almonds and peachy chardonnay fruits. The palate, meanwhile, has plenty of flavoursome peach and lemon-citrus flavors. It's smoothly textured and builds through all savory on the finish. Drink now. Based on the 2011 harvest with 31% reserve wine: 57% chardonnay, 21% pinot noir and 22% pinot meunier fermented and aged in foudres and unfiltered with a low (3.5g/litre) dosage.

Disgorged October 2015. The Jacquesson “Cuvée No. 739” is composed of a blend of fifty-seven percent chardonnay, twenty-two percent pinot meunier and twenty-one percent pinot noir. The wine is from the base year of 2011 and includes thirty-one percent reserve wines and was finished with a dosage of 3.5 grams per liter, after having spent three and a half years aging sur latte. The bouquet is pure and vibrant, wafting from the glass in a blend of apple, a touch of peach, freshbaked bread, a fine base of soil, a touch of almond and a gently smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and zesty, with a fine core of fruit, excellent soil signature, frothy mousse and excellent focus and grip on the beautifully balanced finish. This is drinking very well today, but has the structure to also age very gracefully. High class NV. Nov 2016, www.viewfromthecellar.com, Drink: 2016-2030
The NV Extra-Brut Cuvée No. 739 is a very pretty wine, especially considering it is based on the 2011 vintage. Lemon oil, baked apple and pastry notes open up first, but what stands out most about the 739 is its superb textural finesse and overall polish. A Champagne with soft contours and plenty of forward suppleness, the 739 will drink well right out of the gate. I would prefer to drink it on the early side, in case some of the greener notes typical of the year begin to surface over time. This is an unqualified success from Jacquesson. In 2011, Jacquesson did not bottle any lieu-dits. All the best fruit went into the 739. The blend is 57% Chardonnay, 21% Pinot Noir and 22% Pinot Meunier, with 31% reserve wines. Disgorged October, 2015. Dosage was 3.5 grams per liter. Aug 16, www.vinous.com, Drink: 2016-2021
