Very attractive aromas of cooked apple with fresh brioche. Bread dough and some lemon rind, too. Medium to full body with a creamy and refined mouth feel and a rounded finish. Some almond and cooked apple in the aftertaste. Very drinkable now. 45% chardonnay, 35% pinot noir and 20% pinot meunier.

2016 base vintage. Our harvest from Ay, Dizy and Hautvillers (55%), Avize and Oiry (45%). Winter and Spring were extremely wet; mild to start with but temperatures fell at the beginning of February and remained low with some serious frosts in late April. The end of Spring was sunny but cool, followed by a Summer which was very hot and very dry. Picking began on 19 September and .nished on 6 October, including a break of several days to make allowance for some late ripening parcels. The fruit of our labours was a crop of healthy, mature grapes with particular mention for the Pinot Noirs which were super successful. Reserve wines from previous 700 Cuvées complete the blend. - Champagne Jacquesson
