Champagne "Cuvée 745" Extra Brut

Champagne

2017 base vintage. Winter and Spring were exceptionally dry; the beginning of spring was mild but, in April, destructive frosts ravaged the vineyards, especially in the Côte des Blancs. Temperatures then rose and the weather was good until July. The end of the growing season was hot but very wet. We began harvest on 4th September, finishing on the 13th. Rigorous sorting resulted in a low volume of ripe and healthy grapes. The resulting wines provd to be rich and dense, and we completed the Cuvée with some reserve wines. - Champagne Jacquesson

"A firm, focused Champagne, with the lacy mousse carrying a lovely range of ripe yellow pear and cherry fruit, toast point, preserved lemon, ground ginger and anise flavors. A minerally underpinning of chalk and brine notes emerge to drive the racy finish. Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Meunier. Disgorged December 2021. Drink now. 17,097 cases made, 575 cases imported."
