Champagne Jacquesson Extra Brut Cuvee 743 NV
Region: Champagne, France
Bottle size: 75cl
Grape: Pinot Noir and Chardonnay
2015 base vintage, from vineyards in Ay, Dizy and Hautvillers (60%) Avize and Oiry (40%). Winter and a large part of spring were mild and wet. There followed a period of dry weather with spells of high temperatures which lasted until mid-August. The growing season ended with alternating periods of cool humidity and dry heat. Picking started on 10 September and ended on the last day of the month. The harvest was very homogenous and produced perfectly ripe and healthy grapes, in reasonable quantities, with a sufficient level of acidity. So, a splendid vintage. Some reserve wines complete the blend.
