"Each year, the Jacquesson blended nonvintage is identified by a new cuvée number, meaning the vintage basis of the blend and the composition has changed. But not the style, which remains firmly dry, full of gravitas and intense quality. The wine has plenty of freshness, but the ripe fruit shows signs of opening out and becoming more complex."

"Distinct notes of smoke, graphite and chalk emerge as the NV Brut Cuvee No 733 opens up in the glass. This focused, taut Champagne offers exceptional harmony in a focused and energetic style. A gorgeous array of minerals, grapefruit and lemon comes to life on the perfumed, vibrant finish. The NV Brut Cuvee No 733 is 52% Chardonnay, 24% Pinot Meunier and 24 % Pinot Noir from grand cru and premier cru villages in the Vallee de la Marne and Cote des Blancs. The majority of the wine in the 733 is 2005 (78%). The wine was fermented and aged on its lees in barrel, bottled without filtration and disgorged in the first quarter of 2009 with a dosage of 2.5 grams per liter. This signature wine is a great effort from Jacquesson." (Dec 2009)

"A dry style, boasting malt, whole-grain toast and yeast aromas and flavors, with hints of grapefruit and apple. Light-weight and intense, with a firm finish." (Oct 2009)
