Gold Medal - 2014 France Gilbert & Gaillard. Winner - Drinks Business Champagne Master94 pts - Huon Hooke (The Real Review)
Light to mid-straw-yellow colour with a brassy tint. The bouquet is toasty and mellow, complex and showing some positive development. The palate is also rich and soft and mellow, with more maturity than expected, and a very dry savouriness that lingers. Lip-smacking crisp dryness. A good food wine.90 pts - Tyson Stelzer (Champagne Guide 2020-21)
‘The essence of Jacquart is to be a mosaic,’ says Florian Eznack. A fresh and refreshing style of medium straw hue and red apple, raspberry, lemon and candied citrus is true to her aspiration, accurately reflecting more elegant pinot and meunier parcels to highlight the structure and elegance of chardonnay. It concludes with accurate acid line and elegant persistence in a fresh and lively apéritif style. The dosage has always shown a little in this cuvée, and while its level hasn’t changed on paper, it looks more candied on the finish in the 2013 base than it did in 2012. Its phenolics are better controlled than ever, which means it would shine with less sugar in a great base year like this.
