Color : White
Wine estate : Jacquesson & Fils
Designation : Champagne
Name : 740
Country : France
Vivino : 4.5/5
Note : Jacquesson comes out of normality in Champagne with its bottle numbering. 700 because it is an assembly of several years. From the harvest of the year 2000 (the number was 728), this tasting is the 740th Cuvée, dating from 2012. With its pale yellow golden robe, we have a nose of citrus (lemon-grapefruit) and mineral. In the mouth, a freshness with gourmet bubbles and a brioche and honeyed final. Balanced and complex.

À partir de la récolte de l’an 2000 (le numéro était de 728), cette dégustation est le 740ème Cuvée, datant de 2012. Avec sa robe jaune pâle dorée, nous avons un nez d’agrumes (citron-pamplemousse) et minérale. En bouche, une fraîcheur avec des bulles gourmandes et un final brioché et mielleux. Équilibré et complexe.

A honeyed nose and color with fresh layers of steel and limestone. On the palate vivid and beautifully complete. Really complex with apricots, hazelnut, spice and really long with dazzling acidity. The freshness is a real testament to late disgorgement. — 7 days ago
Interestingly, the 2009 Extra Brut Grand Vintage Rosé is quite a bit tighter and pointed than the Blanc. Here, it is the wine’s energy and tension that stand out most. It will be interesting to see if the 2009 gains a bit more volume over time. Even today, though, the 2009 is beautifully resonant and expressive, with striking vinous intensity driving through to the finish. Hints of orange peel, mint, chalk and blood orange add shades of character. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, July 2018) — 14 days ago
Hint of roasted nuts and popcorn, on the nose; toasted brioche, toasted hazelnut, caramel popcorn, lemon curd and sea spray on the palate. Med plus to high acidity, med plus to long finish.
Had fried langoustine wrapped with perilla leaf and cream uni and nasturtium. Too buttery and toasty from my liking but with this dish, it’s a wonderful pairing! — 9 days ago
02’ Dom Runinart Champagne. Very fine aromas of lemon & grapefruit. Secondary notes of apricot & oyster shells. A thread of chalkiness & floral notes, that sits on the back of your palate for 30+ seconds. Many great years in front of this. Little champagne, prior to a sensational dinner tonight with my BETTER half. — 2 days ago
This was the Champagne I selected for our Plate & Bottle dinner last weekend to pair with the cheese and apps reception. Appetizers & cheese were Gougeres with Gruyere and Cherry Mostarda. Summer Spoons with Melon, Basil, Tomato, Whipped Burrata. Caviar Cheesecake with Smoked Salmon.
Not only is this Champagne beyond serviceable, the people I’ve had it with need to stop being surprised how good it is each time we open it, including me. In addition to being very good, it prices at an incredible value. You’ll be hard pressed (next to impossible) to find a better Champagne for the money.
It has a beautiful body, nice acidity and small bubbles. Peach, apple, pear, lemon, lime, brioche, spring flowers and paired perfectly with the Caviar Cheesecake with Smoked Salmon. Poured from Magnum.
Hedy, our friend & Chef dishes are amazing. If she wanted to open her own restaurant, she would earn at least a Michelin Star and perhaps two. You can find her on FB @Plate&Bottle If you live in the Bay Area a must experience! — 13 days ago
Love this bottle, a killer value, can be found in a retail setting for under $30. Please see my prior notes.
The palate on this bottle is a little more chalky (limestone) than I remember, this is a good thing! Last time we had this wine it was in the winery cellar in Ludes. I miss and don't miss those stairs into their very deep cellar.
I really can't wait to go back to France, we loved Burgundy, but the Champagne region is equally full of amazing producers, big and small. — 11 days ago
The 2005 Millésime Gold Label is a very pretty wine. Silky, perfumed and gracious on the palate, the 2005 is impeccably balanced. Soft curves make the 2005 easy to drink now. Moreover, the 2005 doesn’t have any of the odd mushroomy flavors or advanced notes that are typical of so many 2005s. This is a very pretty, supple style for a wine made with no malolactic fermentation. The 2005 remains fresh and light on its feet, with an exotic floral top note that lingers on the finish.
