Description
 
The Jacquesson 740 is another worthy addition to the stunning 700 series from Jacquesson. It is based on the 2012 vintage, which Jancis Robinson called an "exceptional" year for Champagne, that resulted in "exemplary" maturity. Jacquesson's hugely successful 700 series differs from other non-vintage Champagnes. Each release aiming to retain the best characteristics of each harvest, while also preserving the variations each year brings. In the words of the house "we strive for excellence, as opposed to consistency". The champagnes are readily snapped up by those in the know, with Robert Parker calling them "excellent" and Galloni writing "this is a champagne that consistently over delivers relative to its peers".

Based on the 2014 vintage and disgorged with 1.5 grams per liter dosage in July 2018, Jacquesson's NV Extra Brut Cuvée No. 742 continues the house's pioneering series of cuvées that employ reserve wines not in pursuit of a constant "house style" but merely with the aim of complementing each base vintage to maximize its potential. Wafting from the glass with a complex bouquet of walnut oil, dried white flowers, saffron, citrus oil and crisp orchard fruit, along with a delicate top note of fino sherry, it's medium to full-bodied, sapid and incisive, with superb concentration, racy acids and a long, resonant finish. I found it irresistible. Wine Advocate 93+
