Jacquinot Et Fils Vintages
15th October 2014
This Cuvée is the signature wine of Champagne Jacquinot.
It is a blend of 70% Chardonnay and 30 % Pinot Noir. To continue the Jacquinot style, we add 20 to 30 % of reserve wines.
The hue is golden and the tiny bubbles form a persistent and delicate mousse. The Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in this vintage are expressed in a fresh and fruity bouquet. Its roundness and freshness are perfectly balanced making way for a long and acidulous finish. Ideal for aperitifs and cocktails, it is also the perfect accompaniment to poultry. Serve at 8 to 10 °C
The Private Cuvée is available in bottles, half bottles, magnums and jeroboams. It is available in Brut and also, by special order, in Brut Nature (no dosage) and demi-sec.
Pierre Jacquinot was a keen violinist and his passion is reflected in the names of the vintages. The musical motif has been part of the logo of our brand since 1953.
Selection and compartmental wine making enable us to make wines from the oldest vines. It is kept in our cellars for many years to be tasted at full maturity.
This Symphony of 60% Chardonnay and 40% Pinot Noir presents a golden yellow hue. The trains of fine bubbles form a delicate mousse. The nose is built on flavours of candied fruits, vanilla and toast. This richness is confirmed in mouth with a long and woody finish.
It can be appreciated as an aperitif accompanied by gougères and with fish, especially the majestic lobster. Serve at 8 to 10 °C
The Symphonie Rose is only produced during exceptional vintage years. It is a blended Rosé
The grapes have the same origin as those of the Vintage Symphony and some of the Pinot Noir is vinified in Red Burgundian maceration ?? to obtain a fruity and soft wine after a few months in oak.
The Symphony Rosé is raspberry in appearance with hints of salmon pink and has a lively effervescence. Its bouquet is very delicate with notes of morello cherry and raspberry. Its liveliness and its length are very pleasant. It can be enjoyed as an aperitif or with chocolate desserts and fruit salads. It is also goes well with meats such as lamb.
This Vintage, created in 1976 by Pierre Jacquinot, is the quintessence of our wines.
Produced only in exceptional vintages, this harmony of 80% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Noir remains in our cellars at 12 °C at 19 metres in chalk for many in order to mature by yeast autolysis.
This extreme ageing however does not diminish the cordon of fine bubbles. After its delicate opening it develops subtle tertiary flavours of honey, brioche, mint and vanilla. The balanced and open palate reveals nuances of wood and wax.
A wonderful aperitif but equally good with a trilogy of foie gras. Serve at 10 – 12 °C. Ideally 10-15 minutes after opening.
