Cuvee 744 magnum (1.5 liter)
Jacquesson is best known for the 700 series: consecutive champagnes that express the year in which most of the grapes were picked. Not actual vintage champagnes: the base year is blended with reserve wine from previous years. Hence the numbers on the labels. When the makers started the series in 2000 it was the #728 champagnes in the Jacquesson books.
Cuvee 744 has 2016 as its base year.
The 700 champagnes are complex and full with a nice freshness, exciting and dry. A great companion at the dinner table: serve them with fried fish or a winter dish.
Cuvee 744: toasted nuts and sweet bread on the nose, the flavor is full and broad yet dry towards the finish. A terrific glass on the dinner table now, giving it some more bottle aging is not a bad idea either.
