Jacquesson Champagne Cuvée n° 730 Brut n.v.

48 Chardonnay, 20 Pinot Meunier and 32 Pinot Noir, 60% base harvest 2002, 40% vins de réserve, dosage 3.5 gr./lt and disgorgement in the third quarter of 2006.

It stands for a fine perlage and a lot of freshness, virtually intact, even after all these years. Custard, mixed with citrus notes, even confit, hazelnut and undergrowth, shades of lavender and powder, make up an elegant olfactory texture, enhanced by an accurate and impactful mineral hatch.

Class, even in mouth, thin effervescence, as well as the confirmation of the trend olfactory, with an accurate growth of the mineral impact.

Quality sips, whose taste voltage is in dynamic and continuous development, so, to be savored slowly. Verticality unyielding, significant persistence, with long and ingrained coffee recalls and marine savory.

August rhymes with champagne rosé

Are you ready for your upcoming August grilling?
Well, then it is inevitable rosé wine.
My suggestion is, clearly and unequivocally, favoring the French bubbles.
As usual, I recommend champagne.

Here are a few rosé champagnes, that may serve this holiday season.


Vinous, but elegant, so much red fruit and ginger

Round, the Ladies will appreciate

Structure and minerality of the Pinot Noir coming from Aÿ

The de saignée par excellence, great texture, lychee, spice and coffee

Droiture, intensity, iodine, salt and many more ... Always a certainty

Infinite elegance, rose and chocolate

Velvety harmonies, incense and salty waves
