Located in Dizy in the heart of the Marne Valley, the Jacquesson Champagne House, founded in 1798, was taken over by the Chiquet family in 1974. Jean-Hervé and Laurent Chiquet, two passionate brothers, produce exceptional cuvées thanks to their parcel-based approach and their unique vinification and ageing philosophy. The brothers express the unique character and richness of their very large 28-hectare chalk terroirs.
With its individually numbered vintages that are renowned for their finesse, their aerial purity and their exceptional ageing potential, Jacquesson is poised among the elite of the finest names in Champagne.
