Back in 2013, we opened a bottle of 736 in celebration of our nephew William’s birth. Our latest nephew, Asa, is now here! The 738 is still drinking very young. Apples, lemon curd, white peach and a hint of brioche. A Champagne that’s bursting with energy; acid and minerals for days. My last of six and a fantastic glass of bubbles to toast the arrival of our new member to the family 😊. Disgorged June 2015; Dosage 2.5g/l

3 Grand Crus and 2 1ers Crus. 2010 as base vintage and reserve wines account for 33% of the blend. 61% CH - 18% PN - 21% PM. 2.5 g/L, disgorged in 2015. Reserve wines stored accordinf to Solera. An explosive, rich and robust Champagne. Food is more than welcome here. Patience required as all is here to guarantee a bright evolution. Reliable NV cuvee.

Energetic, bright, but with a wonderful soft nutty texture to balance the mineral acidity. I'm a sucker for this kind of impressive precision. Skills.

The Jacquesson’s Cuvée No. 738 is stellar. Bright, focused and finely cut, the 738 impresses for its energy and overall vibrancy....This is a great showing from a Champagne that consistently over-delivers relative to its peers. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous)

It was very fine, vibrant but not sharp acidity (drink NOT out of a flute, take white wine glass). Notes of sesame, apricot, grapefruit, rock salt, nori leaves and croissant
