NV Jacquesson & Fils Champagne Cuvee No. 742

$59.99
NV Jacquesson & Fils Champagne Cuvee No. 742
John Gilman 92 points The newest release of Jacquesson’s flagship bottling is their “Cuvée No. 742”, which finds its foundation in the base year of 2014. The vins clairs were once again fermented and aged in large, older oak foudres and the wine was finished with a dosage of 1.5 grams per liter when it was disgorged in July of 2018. The wine offers up a fine nose of pear, fresh almond, a bit of apple blossom, chalky minerality, brioche and just a whisper of buttery oak in the upper register. On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied and rock solid at the core, with brisk acids, excellent focus and grip, pinpoint bubbles and lovely focus and balance on the long and still fairly youthful finish. This is quite dry, but has plenty of depth of fruit to buffer its acids and is quite approachable today, but it is still in climbing mode and will be a far more complete glass of bubbly five years down the road. For current drinking, the Cuvée No. 741 is the more ready to go bottling. Fine juice in the making. (Drink between 2021-2055)
