The Jacquesson story begins in 1798 when the Jacquesson family founded the house. Today, it no longer belongs to that family as it was acquired by the Chiquets, but the name stayed. They have managed to imbue this century-old brand with its own unique style that goes against the norm of most of the houses in the A.O.C. Champagne. While most of them strive to maintain the same taste and character of their sparkling wines (using traditional, hundred-year-old recipes), Jacquesson decided to draw on previous and current vintages to make the best possible blend each year. For the winemakers at Jacquesson, work and quality in the field are fundamental and their method works thanks to one crucial element: the quality of the fruit.
