  • Cuvée 740 represents on average 95+% of the Jacquesson production
  • 43% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Meunier and 27% Pinot Noir
  • Organic farming and decidedly low intervention in the wine making process

Citrus and clay are prominent to the nose, which opens up to white florals and pear. The palate has a drying texture, well-balanced acidity and fruit with some wet-stone providing an earthy presence. This is a mineral-driven wine as is the style of Jacquesson, expressing citrus peel, apple pith and a long, lean finish.

It’s a marriage of toasty-richness and bristling freshness here. Compact in the palate with undertones of brioche, marzipan, ginger biscuit, with a coursing vein of green apply, tangy fruit character and lively oyster-shell-like minerality. The bouquet is attractive, a mesh of patisserie, honey and apple/citrus character. It pulses through the mouth with refreshment factor and light, palate sticking fruit-yeast sweetness. It’s gulpable and yet fine. It’s stunning stuff.
