NV Jacquesson Cuvée No. 734 Dégorgement Tardif
The 2006 growing season saw a cold and snowy winter, a mild but stormy spring, a summer that was very warm to start with but which finished cold and rainy.
It was necessary to sort quite strictly but the Chardonnays were very fine and the Pinots vinous and powerful. The blend was 54% Chardonnay, 20% Pinot Noir and 26% Pinot Meunier, with reserve wines comprising 27% of the whole. The wines were kept on their lees for more than seven years before disgorgement in October 2014.

I was the first outside the house to taste Jacquesson’s second DT, and it’s even more refined that the first. The coiled focus and poise exhibited here transcend the generous immediacy of 2006, with lively lemon and white peach fruit, vibrant acidity and pronounced salt chalk minerality infusing a dynamic youthfulness and grand longevity, with a decade of potential before it yet, and likely much more. Secondary complexity is building slowly, with notes of marzipan, brioche and a hint of honey, finishing with the enticing texture and creamy mouthfeel of long lees age.
