The newly released Cuvée No. 744 is Jacquesson’s 17th non-vintage within the “700 series”, their transparent and quietly revolutionary approach to blending for quality ahead of consistency. Cuvée No. 744 is based on the 2016 vintage, a year in which yields were significantly reduced by frost (as they were in Burgundy). Its raciness and elegance reminds proprietor Jean-Hervé Chiquet of the outstanding Cuvée No. 740. Chardonnay 45%, Meunier 20%, Pinot Noir 35%. A splendidly inviting aroma of apple, quince and crusty bread lends this new cuvée a winning combination of freshness and generosity. The extremely fine bubbles are just one component of the texture, which in typical Jacquesson style has a natural concentration and density that requires only the tiniest dosage to balance. Complex, harmonious, and brimming with energy, this is another masterful release from the Chiquet brothers.
