Jacquesson Cuvée 744 Extra Brut

Critical Acclaim: 94 pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate; 93 pts Decanter; 92 pts James Suckling. 

Tasting Notes: "Disgorged in February 2021 with 0.75 grams per liter dosage, the NV Extra-Brut Cuvée No. 744 is based on the 2016 vintage. Exhibiting complex aromas of orange oil, crisp stone fruit, fenugreek and subtle hints of yellow Chartreuse, it's medium to full-bodied, pillowy and seamless, with terrific depth at the core, lively acids and a pinpoint mousse. Simultaneously vivid but replete with sapid nuance, this new release throws into relief all the work the Jacquesson brothers have made in the vineyards and cellar over the last two decades."- Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. 

"Despite its putative parentage of the balmy 2016 vintage, which makes up 70% of the blend, the Cuvée 744 bears all the Jacquesson hallmarks, namely encyclopaedic complexity, with tropical notes of guava and pineapple discreet behind the mealy, rich and yet wonderfully controlled mid-palate. Shard-like acidity runs through the ensemble and the finish is powerful and satisfying."- Decanter. 

"A tangy and intense Champagne with apricots and biscuits and orange-like acidity. Full-bodied with depth and verticality that takes you deep down the palate. Electric finish. Very dry at the end with lovely bitterness. Baked apples. 0.75 g/L dosage. Disgorged August 2021. Based on 2016. 45% chardonnay, 35% pinot noir and 20% pinot meunier. Drink now."- James Suckling. 

Varietal: 45% Chardonnay, 20% Pinot Meunier and 35% Pinot Noir.
