Description
  •  Presentation of the winery

Jacquesson, owned by Chiquet brothers since 1974, is one of the jewels of Champagne. About 30 hectares of vine and 10 hectares of direct supply allow them to produce their different wines. Respect of the grounds, and vinification by parcels are key words for Chiquet brothers, and at Jacquesson, they also take the necessary time for champagne ageing. As a result, their champagnes are very characteristics, and well-appreciated by connoisseurs.

The new Champagne reference

 

The Maison Jacquesson & Fils was founded in 1798 by Claude Jacquesson, near the little town of Dizy, in Châlons-sur-Marne (on the famous Côte des Blancs, in the Champagne region). The cellars were dug under the adjacent hill and the Château Jacquesson was built on the premises that same year. Claude’s son, Memmie Jacquesson, entered a partnership with his cousin François-Félix Juglar (who owned a Champagne house as well) in 1804. Together, they developed the Maison Jacquesson, insisting on exports. It was a resounding success at the time. Napoleon Bonaparte even awarded them a gold medal in 1810, to celebrate their flourishing business. Adolphe Jacquesson, Memmie’s son, began working with his dad in 1832. The Champagne house thus changed its name to "Jacquesson & Fils".

Adolphe Jacquesson was a precursor. He developed numerous production and bottling techniques. In 1844, he even invented the "muselet", that little wire cage you find surrounding champagne corks. Later on, he created a washing machine for champagne bottles, as well as a lighting system for his cellar. For the record, Johann-Joseph Krug started as Jacquesson’s cellar master, working for this Champagne genius before founding the world famous Maison Krug in Reims. When Adolphe died, in 1876, the Champagne house unfortunately was sold to the highest bidders.

Léon de Tassigny notably bought it in 1925, and then Jean Chiquet became the owner in 1974. The Champagne house Jacquesson still currently belongs to the Chiquet family, as Jean-Hervé and Laurent (Jean's sons) are now its managers. These two wine enthusiasts were able to turn the business around and make it a reference in the world of Champagne once again. With its 35 hectares of vineyard, the Maison Jacquesson produces 100% organic champagne, outputting 350,000 bottles per year. Quantity was replaced by quality.
