BACKGROUND

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.

WINEMAKING & VINTAGE NOTES

Vertus 1er Cru and Le Mesnil-sur-Oger Grand Cru, Côte des Blancs. 60% Vertus 1er Cru. Vinified in stainless steel, 40% Grand Cru Le Mesnil-sur-Oger Chardonnay vinified in older Burgundy oak barrels. No malolactic fermentation. Five years aging on the lees before disgorgement.

TASTING NOTES

Brilliant pale gold, with tight bead and ersistent mousse. Chardonnay green pear apple and toasted bread on the nose, with distinct wet stone minerality. Lush creamy mousse upon entry, rich full and crisp, with warm toasty elements. Explosive aged Chardonnay elements, intense minerality and great depth of flavor. Length and persistence of Burgundian style Chardonnay in the finish. Regardless of whether a festive occasion, aperitif high class, or with dinner, it deserves to be enjoyed with delicate dishes such as a Sole “Meuniere,” steamed lobster, or halibut.

AGING

Five years ageing on the lees before disgorgement.
