The NV Cuvée 740, based on the 2012 vintage, is superb. Rich, ample and creamy, yet with striking translucence, the 740 has it all. A classic Jacquesson Champagne, done in the house’s contemporary style, the 740 is a rare young Champagne from this house that will drink well with no cellaring at all. Pastry, orchard fruit, spice, dried flowers and chamomile all flesh out in the glass, but it is the wine’s exceptional balance that places it among the region’s top bottles. The 740 marks another stylistic shift for Jacquesson in which the preference is to focus more on the character of a specific vintage by lowering the amount of reserve wines from the 30% range, where it has been, to around 20%, where it is now. The 2012 is a blend of fruit from vineyards in Aÿ, Dizy, Hautvillers, Avize and Oiry. Disgorged July 2016. Dosage is 1.5 grams/liter. 

Attractive grilled peach and nectarine fruits with mellow, spiced, woody notes in the background. The palate has upbeat fleshy peach and citrus fruit flavors. These grapes were harvested with plenty of power and exuberance. Drink now. - James Suckling
Based around the 2012 vintage, the blend incorporates a lower percentage of base wines (20% as opposed to 30% in the past). The Chiquet brothers prefer to talk about villages rather than varietals, as they are obsessed with their terroir and therefore the grapes are noted to have been sourced from Aÿ, Dizy, Haut-Villiers, Avize and Oiry. Chardonnay makes up about half of the blend, with both Pinot Noir and Meunier to make up the difference, while the dosage is very low, at just 1.5 g/l. This is rounding out nicely and is very readable and correct with such precision. The fruit is expressive enough to compensate for the lack of dosage. - Jancis Robinson
