Winemaker's Notes:

Thanks to the meticulous viticultural methods of the House, which focus on producing a moderate quantity of bunches that are well ventilated, our grapes were able to ripen in optimal conditions and in Avize, picking began on 19th September. The quality of the crop was outstanding and the musts measured around 10 degrees of potential alcohol combined with a tartaric acid content of around 8 gr/l.
My Notes:

About Jacquesson:

Jacquesson was founded in 1798 by Memmie Jacquesson and today stakes a claim as the oldest independent Champagne house. Early vintages were very successful and the house quickly established a good reputation, and the wines are said to have found favour even with Napoleon.
