Tasting Notes

This marks the 741st cuvée made at Jacquesson, a regal, sturdy Champagne, amply filled with yellow plums, Bosc pears, and aromatic, leesy fresh-baked bread. Always complex, the wine is mostly 2013 vintage, 57% Chardonnay with a mélange of Pinots Noir and Meunier. The still wine is vinified in foudres, large barrels. Consistent with the house style, the 741 does not disappoint. Pair with fried appetizers or blini and domestic caviar.

Staff Pick Notes

2013 wasn’t exactly a “coy” vintage in Champagne. A cold snowy winter, damp spring, and a summer full of dry heat. The base wine from this year of pendulum conditions emerged as something truly alive and kicking. While there are small percentages of reserve wine in this cuvée the 2013 juice is what really shines. The palate is chock full of citrus and cream, swinging gracefully between tart and sweet. Let your glass aerate and you’ll find everything has somehow become richer. This is champagne teeming with energy and eager to strut its stuff. Two qualities that I love in young champagne.

Champagne is finally getting the recognition it deserves as a brilliant food wine. For consistency and quality, turn to the big Champagne brands and you’ll never go wrong. Remember that “Non-Vintage” (NV) is not a dirty word here: NV Champagnes are blends of wines from the best growing seasons. But if you can find one, try a Champagne made by a Grower-Producer. These winemakers control every...

From Champagne to Chablis, it's hard (not to mention unpleasant) to avoid this famous white variety. During a huge popularity surge beginning in the late 1980s, Chardonnay plantings have increased dramatically -- not only in California's wine country, with which the variety is nearly synonymous, but also in Burgundy (its original, Old World home) and just about everywhere else in the winemaking...
