Cuvée 745 from the Maison Jacquesson, is from the 2017 harvest, a low volume harvest, but with rich and dense wines. Beautiful Extra-Brut champagne (0.75 g/l), made from 55% of the terroirs of Aÿ, Dizy and Hautvillers and 45% of those of Avize and Oiry. One of the "700" numbered vintages, famous for their finesse, purity and incredible aging potential. Resulting from a blend of Chardonnay-43%, Meunier-30% and Pinot Noir-27%, the nose reveals notes of citrus fruits and brioche. The air bubble (perlage) is of great finesse and air. The mouth is very elegant, on white fruit, with a slightly woody and mineral touch. A fine, complex and tense champagne profile.
After harvesting, the grapes are destemmed and pressed and undergo temperature-controlled alcoholic fermentation with wild yeasts in old large wooden casks (some 120 years old), followed by malolactic fermentation and maturation on the 'lie'. After this, sugar and yeast are added to the wine again and then it is bottled and closed with a crown cap. Carbon dioxide (prise de mousse) is produced during the subsequent fermentation. Dosage of 0.75 g/L, so an Extras Brut. Disgorged January 2022 This entire process takes place without any form of filtering and according to biological rules and regulations.

acquesson Champagne was founded in 1798 by Memmie Jacquesson in Chalons-en-Champagne. Memmie gave the new house its name and was immediately very successful: Jacquesson was one of Napoleon's favorite houses. His son Adolphe further developed the company and worked with Dr. Jules Guyot - still known today for his worldwide cutting technique and his patent on the muselet (the metal wire basket to secure the champagne cork). The early deaths of Adolphe's two sons marked the end of the family line and the temporary decline of the champagne house.
In 1974, Champagne Jacquesson was taken over by the Chiquet family and the core of the company moved to Dizy amid its own vineyards. The house features premier crus and grand crus vineyards in the villages of Dizy, Avize and Aÿ in La Grande Vallée de la Marne and La Côte des Blancs (named after the color of the grapes; around 95% of the grapes grown here consists of chardonnay). Champagne Jacquesson has 31.5 ha of its own vineyard and uses 10 ha of contracted, friendly winegrowers who work according to the same rules as those working in their own vineyards.
