"On this night, though, the focus was on wine. I had been dying to drink – not taste – Jacquesson's Brut Cuvée 736, following my visit to the domaine a few months ago. This bottle was every bit as great as I remembered. Built on a base of 2008, the 736 was brilliant, focused and chiseled from the very first taste. What a wine!" (Oct 2013)
" A cool, pure and restrained nose of citrus, green apple and soft yeast nuances serves as an elegant introduction to the equally refined flavors that possess a wonderfully fine mouth feel as the supporting mousse is perfectly integrated. As the Extra Brut designation would suggest this is quite dry but in contrast to many examples of the genre the Cuvee 736 is not especially austere. Moreover, relatively few zero dosage examples are as refined as this one and this could accurately, and aptly, be described as a Champagne of finesse. Note that while it could easily be enjoyed now, Jacquesson fans know that the wines age beautifully." (Jun 2014)
