Jacquesson's NV Extra-Brut Cuvée No. 738 Dégorgement Tardif (2010 base) is superb. So fresh and vibrant in the glass, the 738 dazzles from start to finish. Lemon confit, white flowers, almond and dried orchard fruit all race out of the glass. The Dégorgement Tardif was aged on cork and spent ninety-six months on the lees, which works so well in preserving the wine's freshness and explosive energy. Time in the glass brings out the wine's tension and vibrancy. This release is based on the 2010 vintage, with 33% reserve wines. The blend is 61% Chardonnay, 21% Pinot Meunier and 18% Pinot Noir. Disgorged July 2019. Dosage is 0.75 grams per liter.
