About Jacquesson

Jacquesson has an impressive history. It was founded in 1798 in Châlons by Memmie Jacquesson, son of a wine trader. The house rapidly rose to fame, aided by the fact that Napoleon was a fan. However, everything that we today value about Jacquesson began in 1974 when Côte des Blancs winegrower Jean Chiquet acquired the brand and vineyards and moved the domicile of the house to Dizy. His sons Jean-Hervé and Laurent Chiquet are the present custodians of the Jacquesson trading house, which manages to cover almost 90% of its grape requirement from its own vineyards. These are located in the Grands Crus Aÿ, Avize and Oiry, and in the Premiers Crus Hautvillers, Dizy and Mareuil-sur-Aÿ. Additional grapes are only bought from growers who follow exactly the same methods as the Chiquets. The fruit is pressed by Jacquesson itself in its four presses, three of which are located in Dizy and one in Avize.


About Laurent and Jean-Hervé Chiquet

Laurent and Jean-Hervé Chiquet see themselves primarily as winegrowers who cultivate the land and do everything with the aim of obtaining the best possible grapes. And from there, the brothers have been ready to break with convention in order to deliver the best possible wine every time - hence the decision to introduce the 7-series non-vintage wines instead of the traditional house NV. Le Guide des Vins de France 2014 sums up their approach, and results, pretty well: "Belonging for several decades to the Chiquet family, [Jacquesson] has steadily become the flag-bearer of Champagne for connoisseurs. Theirs is an incredibly faithful translation of the various terroirs, illustrated by keeping dosages to a strict minimum and ageing the cuvées for the right period of time before release. This is why the wines always possess a distinctive character which can sometimes catch you off guard, from the super-intense rosé to the magnificent blanc d'Avize."
