There mouthfeel has creamy, soft effervescence followed by a minerality and good length due to the high acidity. Beautiful with salmon, oysters or as an aperitif.
Expert Reviews & Awards
"‘Freshness, minerality, chalk, creaminess, ampleness and richness’ are the diverse aspirations for Jacquart’s Blanc de Blancs, and 2012 meets this ambitious brief more confidently than any before it. This was the first great season since Florian Eznack joined the house, and this cuvée resoundingly proclaims her elegant yet confident touch. Sourcing is adjusted according to the season, always from the Montagne de Reims or the Côte des Blancs; in 2012 a union of grand and premier crus from both, seamlessly uniting the generosity of Aÿ, Hautvillers, Villers-Marmery and Vertus with the tension and focus of Avize and Le Mesnil-sur-Oger. Bright lemon and succulent white peach fruit are generously underscored by the almond nougat and cream of five years of lees age, uniting seamless and poised on a finish of great line and length. The mineral signature of Avize and Le Mesnil are pronounced, deeply chalky and finely mineral, charging the finish with great freshness and finesse."

"The colour is light-straw and the bouquet is fresh crisp and complex, with some toasty background to the lemon citrus and meringue, nutty, nougat flavours and aromas. The palate is tight and refined, intense and very long. The line of the wine is quite excellent and the overall style and balance are superb. The finish is very dry, assisted by a slight phenolic grip, all in harmony. A superb blanc de blancs."

Made from 100% Chardonnay including 4 grand crus and premiers crus in the Côte des Blancs and the Montagne de Reims along with 2 grand crus and premiers crus from the Marne Valley.
All of the Champagne Jacquart cuvées are Chardonnay dominant. This in turn requires longer ageing (3.5 years) than the Pinot Noir -based marques (18 months), and as a result Jacquart has a very refined mousse. The Chardonnay also contributes to a dry aperitif style, refreshing wine.

The house of Jacquart was established in 1964 as a Chardonnay-growers co-operative. Today, it is the largest grower-producer in Champagne, with 100% of the fruit grown by the owners. Closely linked to the terroir, the wines represent a fascinating bridge between the smaller family estates and the larger Champagne houses – the Grands Marques. All cuvées are Chardonnay dominant. This in turn requires longer ageing (3.5 years) than the Pinot Noir -based marques (18 months), and as a result Jacquart has a very refined mousse. The Chardonnay also contributes to a dry aperitif style, refreshing wine. What’s in a name? The Cellar at the Jacquart Maison is adorned with a map of the 1,400 vineyards contributing to Champagne Jacquart. These are colour coded by variety, sub district, cru and soil type, all of which create a ‘mosaic’ that is brought to life in the Brut Mosaique.

The Champagne wine region is the closest wine region to Paris and the home of one of the world's most prestigious sparkling wines, Champagne. Champagne has a cool, continental climate that keeps the sugar levels in the grapes very low as well as keeping acid levels in the grapes quite high. This is why Champagne is ideal for sparkling wine production. In addition, the soils in Champagne are chalky, which enables good drainage and good water retention, depending on the seasons. The three most well known sub regions of Champagne are; Montagne de Reims, Vallée de la Marne and the Côte de Blanc. The three grapes varieties that are used in Champagne wine making are; Chardonnay (which provides acidity, floral and citrus characters), Pinot Noir (which provides the structural backbone and red fruit character) and Pinot Meunier (which provides lively fruit flavours). Champagne must be made in the traditional method, whereby the grapes are handpicked. Non-vintage wines must be aged for 15 months, including 12 months on lees. Vintage wines must be aged for 36 months. Vintage Champagne is only made in the best years whereas non-vintage Champagne is blend of the best wines from each year.
