Jacquesson Champagne Extra Brut Cuvee 746

Regular price $79.98

The 746 is a blend of 43% Pinot Noir, 30% Pinot Meunier, and 27% Chardonnay, finished with a very low dosage, at less than a gram per liter which lets the purity of the fruit shine through. Jacquesson stated that 2018 started quite rainy and lasted through Spring but turned around in June, becoming fine and dry, resulting in a particularly early harvest that began on August 30th and finished on September 10th. Jacquesson noted that the vines were in perfect health, and the harvest was abundant with an excellent degree of ripeness and moderate acidity, with the resulting wines being particularly fine and elegant. This vintage has amazing potential, and if we have learned anything from Jacquesson over the years, it is that their numbered series has become incredibly consistent, and 746 is no exception. This has just been released, and we have a limited amount of the only bottles currently available in the USA.

Jacquesson is one of the oldest Champagne houses in Dizy and, for what it's worth, received a gold medal from Napoleon Bonaparte for the quality of their cellar some 200+ years ago. The Jacquesson name experienced a slight decline after the death of Adolphe Jacquesson, and it was not until Jean Chiquet bought it in 1974 that the name began to come back to its former glory. The Chiquet family revitalized the House, utilizing more Grand Cru grapes, oak barrels for complexity, and overall more scrutiny over the quality of the Champagne produced. Jacquesson now makes a new Cuvee every year, which they label sequentially with a number, this year's being 746. The base vintage here is from 2018 and contains grapes sourced from Aÿ, Dizy, Hautvillers (68%), Avize, and Oiry (32%), along with a splash of one of the oldest reserve wine collections in Champagne that has been used for over 700 Cuvees.

Shipping Policy

Open tab
  • Unless your delivery address is on the West Coast, we strongly discourage you from selecting “Ground Service” as your shipping method. During the winter and summer months, weather conditions (temperature) and longer delivery times can often result in the spoilage of your order. It doesn’t make sense to invest in fine wines and then take the chance of ruining them due environmental factors during transit (faster and safer delivery generally isn’t much more expensive). We don’t make an additional profit on accelerated delivery, but we frequently recommend faster shipping options to our customers outside the West Coast.
  • You must be 21 years of age to order or receive alcoholic beverages.  Any shipments containing alcoholic beverages are sent with an “Adult Signature Required” sticker, and the common carrier that delivers our merchandise is required to ask and check for identification upon delivery. This means that an adult will have to be present at the time of delivery.  Please consider shipping to an office address.
  • During periods of extreme weather, we attempt to ship wines at the beginning of each week in order to get shipments to you before the weekend. This is because we have no control over the temperature conditions at our freight carriers’ warehouses. The result may be that your shipment doesn’t go out the day that you place an order.
  • We ship by Fedex or Fedex Ground. Our prices include packaging materials. Insurance may be available for an additional charge.
  • Vintage Wine Merchants, Inc. will arrange for shipment on behalf of the buyer, to an address specified by the buyer, provided that Vintage Wine Merchants, Inc. in its sole judgment believes that such shipment will not subject Vintage Wine Merchants, Inc. to the risk of any sort of legal action or other harm. If a buyer lives in a state where the direct shipment of wine by Vintage Wine Merchants, Inc. violates the law, we suggest that the buyer provide an alternative address in another state or have their wine shipped to a third-party storage facility in a direct shipping-friendly state.
  • Various states impose limitations on the quantity of alcoholic beverages that may be purchased and brought into their jurisdiction by a purchaser from another state without requiring the purchaser, a seller or shipper to possess certain licenses or permits. Vintage Wine Merchants, Inc. does not, as a condition of sale, assume any obligation nor bear any responsibility whatsoever for applying or obtaining any permits or licenses. Therefore, we recommend that you investigate the possibility of such limitations, and determine the manner in which alcoholic beverages shall be brought into your state from California, so as to comply with all of your state’s requirements.
  • Wine shipping rules in the United States are controlled by the state you live in. We do not ship wine to the following states at this time:
