Very tight and lean. zero dosage. Almost metallic and mineral with a hint of bitterness on the finish. If it’s type, very good but maybe some time would help.

The NV Cuvée 740, based on the 2012 vintage, is superb. Rich, ample and creamy, yet with striking translucence, the 740 has it all. A classic Jacquesson Champagne, done in the house’s contemporary style, the 740 is a rare young Champagne from this house that will drink well with no cellaring at all. Pastry, orchard fruit, spice, dried flowers and chamomile all flesh out in the glass, but it is the wine’s exceptional balance that places it among the region’s top bottles. The 740 marks another stylistic shift for Jacquesson in which the preference is to focus more on the character of a specific vintage by lowering the amount of reserve wines from the 30% range, where it has been, to around 20%, where it is now. The 2012 is a blend of fruit from vineyards in Aÿ, Dizy, Hautvillers, Avize and Oiry. Disgorged July 2016. Dosage is 1.5 grams/liter. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, July 2017)

Fresh lemon zest with a creamy yet crisp finish.

16.5/20 (91/100) Выраженно оксидативный аромат, в котором доминируют тона лежалого яблока, дополненные нотами сдобы и мёда. Довольно тельное с высокой кислотностью. Яблочное во вкусе.

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.

Jacquesson sort de la normalité en Champagne avec ses numérotations de bouteille. 700 car c’est un assemblage de plusieurs années. 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.

Based around the supposedly spectacular 2012 vintage with some reserve wines this is a sublime wine with finesse, finish and length. First Jacquesson I’ve had but if they are all this good, boy I’ve been missing a treat!!
