André Jacquart – Le Mesnil Grand Cur Brut Nature NV
Domaine Andre Jacquart is a family owned Champagne house based in Vertus on the Cote des Blancs. Today, it is run by the second and third generations: brother and sister team Pierre Jacquart and Chantal Doyard-Jacquart, assisted by Chantal’s husband Maurice (whose father Pascal Doyard was a leading light in the CIVC) and their daughter Marie.
Renowned for their brilliance with the Chardonnay grape, their estate covers 16 hectares in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger and Vertus (Grand Cru and Premier Cru Chardonnay) plus 4 hectares of Pinot. The house’s current annual production is 90,000 bottles of elegant, graceful and classically styles champagnes.
Light lemon colour with refined bubbles. Buttery and toasty aromas on the nose with hints of pear and flowers. Mouth filling palate with fresh acidity and exotic notes. Long and sweet citrus finish. A very pure expression. Suggest food pairings: aperitif, scallops or monkfish with champagne sauce.
