Tasting Notes

Gilbert Jacquesson's top offering comes from estate vineyards planted in the village of Troissy, in the heart of the Marne Valley. It is composed of 40% Meunier, 30% Chardonnay, and 30% Pinot Noir. The Meunier is all reserve wines from old plots that is barrel fermented and barrel aged for one year. (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne Buyer)

    This is a Champagne with real depth! The cépage of equal parts Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Meunier sees some time in barrel, which imparts creaminess and delicate spice notes. With aromas and flavors of subtle fennel and ripe, clean Granny Smith apple, the Cuvée Prestige is very well balanced and has a long, spicy finish.

    This Champagne is buttery, rich and long lasting. Not a shy wine at all! You can taste the oak contact, but it is elegant and not overpowering at all. New for us, we hope our customers enjoy the Jacquesson wines as much as we do so that we can continue bringing them in!

    Although this selection has not arrived, I was able to taste a preview of it today. Unlike its siblings, it tends towards higher acidity with Fino sherry notes, almonds, yellow fruits and persimmon. Long finish. Super interesting. Cannot wait until we get this into stock!

    This is an exciting Champagne that we are anticipating in the near (I hope) future! You're getting a lot of wine for the money! A brilliantly complex sparkler that has a really creamy mouthfeel. Hints of exotic spice and dried fruits play well with the mineral tone that permeates the entire experience. Bright acidity, and fresh apple fruits, bring your mouth a tantalizing, mouthwatering, lengthy experience!

    A bit different than the other Gilbert Jacquessons we have in house, the Cuvee Prestige is a blend of all three varieties and has some barrel contact. While his other bottlings are elegant and medium-bodied, this Champagne is bold and powerful! Concentrated yellow apples and dry wood stand firm on the palate while a savory, almost smoky character sneaks onto the finish--just enough for you to wonder what is it. I would be super interested to pick up a few bottles to cellar and see how they age!
