For four generations, the parents and grandparents of André Jacquart only produced Champagne grapes.
In 1958 André Jacquart introduced a new spirit in the family, producing his own estate-bottled Champagne in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger (Champagne Village classified Grand Cru).
Since 2004, Champagne André Jacquart has been located in Vertus (Champagne Village classified Premier Cru). Major work was undertaken and the fifth generation, represented by Marie Doyard (the grandchild of André Jacquart) stepped in to run the business and inspire it with her own philosophy. Interestingly, Marie’s paternal grandfather, Maurice Doyard, was instrumental in the creation of the AOC Champagne and the delimitation of its vineyard areas.
