Champagne Jacquesson

Aÿ Vauzelle Terme - 2009 - Famille Chiquet


CHIQUET Jean-Hervé et Laurent

Another dimension of Champagne... We’re talking about a cuvée of which there are only 2500 bottles, produced from a parcel of only 30 ares, planted in 1980 with only 2500 vines of Pinot Noir. The parcel is on a slope, facing south, with a very clayey alluvial soil over blocks of Campanian era chalk. The grapes were harvested in September 2009. Vinified and matured in barrels then bottled without filtration, this Champagne received a dosage of 1.5 gr/l, was aged 9 years on its lees, and was disgorged in April 2019.
Jean-Hervé and Laurent Chiquet are the inheritors of a champagne house that was handed down to their father Jean in 1974. Meticulous vignerons, they often remain discrete regarding the magnificent history of their house. Since Napoleon Bonaparte bestowed a gold medal upon the house, Jacquesson & Fils has never disappointed. The vineyard parcels are ideally spread over grand crus (Aÿ, Avize, Dizy and Oiry) and premier crus. However, it was Jean-Hervé and Laurent who were behind the estate's great shift to organics. And their idea as well to offer every year a new single-vintage cuvee blended with reserve wines: these became the now famous 700 cuvées, characterized by lovely vinous flavours. Here, the wines are pure and chiselled like stained glass, the dosage always being very low. Finesse with bubbles. Of all the great champagne houses in recent years, Jacquesson is the only one to produce less and less, but better and better.
