Jacquesson & Le Mesnil amongst World’s Most Admired Champagne Brands 2019

by Will

Writing for Drinks International, Giles Fallowfield states:

"... at [the winery's] heart remains the Cuvée 700 range, the only blended wine they still elaborate. The first time they made this wine was back in 2001 with Cuvée 728 based on the previous 2000 harvest. ...

"The Cuvée 700 concept is unique in Champagne and is the opposite of a non-vintage wine," says Jean-Hervé. "We seek excellence rather than homogeneity, respect for the character of the vintage rather than its denial, and the preference to create a house style," the doctrine most other producers in Champagne follow for their non-vintage blends."

As for Le Mesnil, the feature states: 

"This co-operative, located slap-bang in the middle of one of the Cote des Blancs most celebrated grand crus, Le Mesnil produces some of the most exciting wholly Chardonnay-based champagnes in the whole appellation.

The Le Mesnil wines can be very steely in their youth and really need time in the bottle to shine. Happily, they get that with the current NV based on 2014, plus 5% reserve wine from the two previous harvests."
