Jacquesson Champagne

Exploring the History and “Terroirs” of Champagne: La Maison Jacquesson & Fils

Since it was founded in 1798, Maison Jacquesson has carried the legacy of its founder, offering high-quality wines that have captured the attention of discerning palates since the early days of its prosperous trade.

Over the centuries, Jacquesson Champagne has become a favorite of eminent figures, including Napoleon, and the Emperor himself recognized the Maison with the prestigious gold medal for the beauty and richness of its cellars after a visit in 1810.

Today, Maison Jacquesson & Fils keeps the memory of its founders alive, producing about 250,000 bottles annually with scrupulous attention to detail and the highest quality standards. Located in Dizy, in the vicinity of Aÿ, this small but ancient maison is directed with wisdom and ambition by the Chiquet brothers, becoming one of the great realities of the Champagne region.

Despite its success, the Maison has maintained its production on a human scale, sourcing grapes mainly from 28 hectares of vineyards, 11 of which are located in the prestigious Côte de Blancs in Avize.

Rigorous winemaking and optimal aging are the signature of the Maison, which chooses to market vintage cuvées according to their maturity rather than simple chronological order. All vintage wines are processed as extra-brut, with a very low dosage that preserves the finesse and purity of the wine.

The Union of Champagne’s “Terroirs”

Champagne, with its harsh northern climatic conditions, gives its lands, the “terroirs,” a unique characteristic that requires extraordinary attention to express their richness and diversity.

The combination of natural elements and meticulous work makes “terroirs” great, and Maison Jacquesson is committed to making the most of them. The traditional cultivation methods adopted, such as no or reduced fertilization and plowing of the soil, make it possible to highlight the diversity of individual plots, called lieux-dits.

The Maison distinguishes four of these lieux-dits, where bottling takes place only in great vintages:

      • Dizy, Corne Bautray, with one hectare of Chardonnay planted in 1960.

      • Dizy, Terres Rouges, with one hectare and 33 ares of Pinot Noir planted in 1993.

      • Avize, Champ Caïn, with one hectare and 27 ares of Chardonnay planted in 1962.

      • Ay, Vauzelle Terme, with 30 ares of Pinot Noir planted in 1980.

    Each terroir reveals its uniqueness and gives unique personality to the resulting wines, turning each sip into an authentic and unforgettable experience.

    Since then each bottle bears like a banner of freedom, the 3 numbers of its birth, from the estate’s 728 cuvées.
