Champagne Jacquesson Cuvée n° 741 - Bottle Empty

Bought in 2018, this Cuvée n° 741 is based on the  2013 harvest with reserve wines, and stems from the crus Ay, Dizy, Hautvillers, Avize and Oiry. 2013 was a very special year, although the most harvests are very special now in Champagne. Late picking at the end of September, this Cuvée n° 741 has a noble freshness and and immense and delicate power fruit. Although today there is a rather stylish equilibrium between the Pinots and the Chardonnay one can imagine that in five years the Pinot might dominate this wine. We will see.

Laurent and Jean-Hervé Chiquet in their own words about this always unique wine: 

„The Cuvée 700 concept is unique in Champagne and is the opposite of a non-vintage wine! We seek excellence rather than homogeneity, respect for the character of the vintage rather than its denial, and the preference to strive to produce a great wine rather than maintain a “house style”. The addition of reserve wines is designed to reinforce the complexity of the wine without hiding the character of the base year. Once we had set out on this path, it quickly became apparent to us that we could not also make a blended vintage wine because this could only harm the quality and purity of the Cuvée 700.“
