JACQUESSON EXTRA BRUT ROSE DIZY TERRES ROUGES 2009
Offered JUNE 21st, 2017
“Founded in 1798, Jacquesson established itself as one of the most important Champagne firms of the 19th century…When the house was purchased in 1974 by the Chiquet family, it was moved to the village of Dizy, where it remains today. Under the hand of Jean Chiquet, Jacquesson developed a portfolio of wines of exceptional quality, establishing a reputation as one of Champagne’s finest houses. Since 1988, Jacquesson has been managed by Jean’s two sons, Laurent and Jean-Hervé Chiquet, who have embarked on an ambitious program to take the house to an even greater level of quality.
In the past, Jacquesson made a blended rosé in both vintage and non-vintage versions, but these were discontinued in 1997 and 1999, respectively. In 2002, however, they decided to make another attempt, although under a completely different aesthetic. Sourced from the vineyard of Terres Rouges in Dizy, along the road to Reims, this is a bold, intensely-flavored and deeply-colored saignée rosé, full of richly fragrant fruit while retaining the finesse and harmony that is the hallmark of Jacquesson’s wines.” – Peter Liem, Champagne Guide
Jacquesson Extra Brut Rose Dizy Terres Rouges 2009
36 bottles available, $85 per bottle
93 points Vinous: “The 2009 Dizy-Terres Rouges Rosé is an unusual Champagne for Jacquesson in that is the first time this wine was bottled with no dosage. Crushed rose petal, tobacco, anise and star anise are all super-expressive, but the non-dosage style results in a powerful, almost tannic Rosé endowed with considerable structure and intensity. Readers should expect an intense Rosé that will offer its best drinking at the dinner table. Hints of crushed rose petal, tobacco, and star anise add the closing shades of nuance.”
