Champagne Jacquart Brut Mosaique NV w awarded The Coup de Coeur Award for Guide Hachette 2016 in the Champagne category!
This is probably the most outstanding Champagne in the Jacquart range particularly when one considers it’s recent awards and it’s most affordable value for money.
A perfect blend of 40% Chardonnay, 35% Pinot Noir and 25% Pinot Meunier.
This Champagne won the only Grand Medaille d’Or awarded to a Champagne house at the Mondial du Vin in Brussels 2000. It is the largest wine competition in the world! It was also the only Champagne to be awarded 20/20 by the Sommeliers of France ( a judging panel made up of the top sommeliers from France’s most exclusive restaurants) In their words " …if only other Champagnes could be as good as this! A perfect cuvee!…".
Extremely stylish and elegant with the refinement that the Chardonnay grape brings to it s cuvees, this is one of my, and obviously the world’s favourite cuvees….
THE FACTS: A blend where Chardonnay is the dominant grape variety (35%-40%), giving Brut Mosaïque its freshness and delicate aromas. Pinot Noir (30%-35%) adds structure and Pinot Meunier (25% -30%) brings fruit.The grapes are sourced from exceptional terroirs, including the Grands Crus of the Côte des Blancs and the Montagne de Reims. The presence of 25% reserve wine ensures regularity of style, while more than three years ageing and a light dosage of 10 g/l result in a balanced and complex champagne.
THE LOOK: Pale yellow with tints of white gold and a stream of fine bubbles.
THE NOSE: Aromas of fresh pear, fig and almond, with hints of orange flower. A light swirl of the glass brings out richer notes of honey and freshly baked bread.
