The domain

Maison Jacquesson has always differentiated itself from other Champagne Houses thanks to its parcelmaking process. The cuvée n°700 and those that followed were born from this desire to produce champagnes of character, little dosed and bred in oak lightning. Jacquesson is (re)recognised worldwide and was the favorite champagne of Emperor Napoleon I.

THE BEGINNINGS OF THE JACQUESSON HOUSE

Created in 1798 by Claude Jacquesson and his son Memmie, this Champagne House located in Dizy in the Marne Valley, quickly grew rapidly. Cellars were also dug in the Mont Saint Michel hill to ensure the sustainable production of champagne. A gold medal later, Jacquesson was raised among the most prestigious Champagne Houses during the July monarchy. In 1832, Memmie’s son Adolphe Jacquesson joined the company and in 1844 became the inventor of the muzzle and the champagne capsule. He also created a bottle rinse machine and a light reflection system to illuminate the cellars. Jacquesson was bought in 1974 by the Chiquet family.

THE JACQUESSON STYLE

The Jacquesson vineyard extends over 28 hectares, in the Marne Valley with its Grand Cru A and its two Premiers Crus Dizy and Hautvilliers as well as on the Côte des Blancs with its two Grands Crus Avise and Oiry. Maison Jacquesson favours traditional viticulture, a rather short size and organic treatments where possible. The soils are ploughed and grassed in the rows of vines, with regard to the vinification stages, the clearing remains light and no chaptalisation is carried out. An ageing in ancient oak lightning is then carried out for most Jacquesson cuvées. Here are the key steps that bring this personal touch to Jacquesson Champagnes.

SPECIAL FEATURES OF CHAMPAGNE JACQUESSON

The Maison de Champagne Jacquesson is distinguished by its famous “cuvée 700”, a concept that aims to produce a champagne from a blend of several years unlike the raw champagnes without year that we all know. A small presentation of the Jacquesson cuvées is required: the cuvée 745 comes from the 2017 harvest on the terroirs of the Vallée de la Marne mainly in blending with the Côte des Blancs. It is a rich champagne, with a lot of matter in the mouth and complexity. The cuvée 738 Dégorgement Tardif aged for 96 months on lees and under cork. It has a very good custody potential, as well as a remarkable freshness. Certainly very great Jacquesson champagnes!
