High quality grower Champagne from Le Mesnil

UK agent: Top Selection (

Not to be confused with Champagne Jacquart, André Jacquart is a small domaine with 18 hectares of vines, based in Le Mesnil Sur Oger in the Côte des Blancs. They also have holdings in the Vallée de la Marne and L’Aube.  Piérre Jacquart and his sister Chantal Doyard-Jacquart run the domaine. They are unusual in their use of oak for fermenting the base wines, sourcing wood from Radoux, Francois Freres and Antonin Rodet.


Champagne André Jacquart 1er Cru Vertus Blanc de Blancs NV
This is based on the 2004 vintage, and old oak is used in the fermentation process. It was disgorged in May 2008 and the dosage is low (4 g/litre) Complex appley, herby nose with some subtle toastiness. The palate is bold, savoury, intense and complex with lovely depth of flavour, and a hint of creamy toastiness. Stylish. 91/100

Champagne André Jacquart Grand Cru Le Mesnil Blanc de Blancs NV
70% barrel fermented in older oak. Complex, toasty and intense on the nose, this is really refined and super-elegant. The palate has subtle toasty notes backing up the intense, yet elegant, lemony fruit. Serious stuff with lovely complexity and depth. 92/100
