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.

Production Area
Country: France
Region: Champagne
Appellation: AOC Champagne

Grape Varieties
100% Chardonnay – Grand Cru

Vinification
100% old Burgundy oak barrel fermentation. André Jacquart use as part of their barrel fermentation regime Aquaflex barrels for still wine fermentation of the grand cru chardonnay grapes. These barrels moderate oak impact, and bring delicate aromas of vanilla and soft spices, with more expression of the initial fruit characters of the wine. Zero Dosage. No malolactic fermentation. Aged on its lees a minimum of 7 years before disgorgement.

Bouquet
Sourdough notes mingle with white flowers on the nose.

Taste
The attack on the palate is vibrant and assertive, so is the mouthfeel with its ample structure.
As it is usually the case from Le Mesnil, the electrifying minerality has a long lasting impression on the Chardonnay fruit and enhance its purity.
