Jacquesson 746 Champagne
Until 1999, yearless Brut reigned supreme throughout Champagne. An era in his image: without beginning and without end. And everything changed:
“Why aim for average when we can achieve excellence? ”
The Domaine then proclaimed its independence, illustrated in its 700 Manifesto: to make the best blend possible each year. Plots, vines, terroir, human heart and soul: the whole estate had to come together in a single bottle, in the spirit of a vintage, with the reserve wines, for a single Champagne, each year different, each year sublimated.
The revolution surprised the court and enchanted the palaces.
Since then, each bottle has carried as a banner of freedom the 3 figures of its birth from the estate’s 728 cuvées.
