Blanc de Blancs Vintage
“ A vintage wine is the jewel in any collection. It has been finely chiselled from the top growths to capture the quintessential qualities of an outstanding vintage in the bottle. The Champagne Jacquart vintage Blanc de Blancs elevates the spirit of Chardonnay and roots it as much in history as in its own specific provenance. ”
2012: A year of changing weather patterns
The Champagne wine region suffered in 2012 from numerous adverse weather events, with winter and spring frosts, rain during flowering and cool temperatures lasting into July.
Despite this, warm, sunny days with frequent wind and cool nights in August enabled us to harvest superb, albeit small clusters. The resultant must then wines showed impeccable balance and substantial ageing potential.
