Jac­ques­son Cu­vee 735 Late Dis­gorged

Halliday - - Global Notes -

FRANCE When only Cham­pagne will do, splash­ing out on a gift that is ex­tra de­li­cious and has a back­story

(this house is ac­tu­ally more in­ter­ested in low­er­ing its vol­ume to re­tain qual­ity) is al­ways a win­ner. This is part of Jac­ques­son’s 700 sin­gle-vine­yard se­ries and has 47% chardon­nay, 33% pinot noir and 20% pinot me­u­nier, and it’s based on the 2007 vin­tage. With gen­tle, warm­ing, gin­gery spice, the lus­cious­ness of pears and gen­tle tex­ture with fine bub­bles, this is one classy bot­tle of Cham­pagne.
