Solera Premier Cru Blanc de Blancs
Champagne André Jacquart
Premier Cru Blanc de Blancs AOC
Andre Jacquart is a “grower champagne” in the truest sense.
For four generations, the parents and grandparents of André Jacquart only produced Champagne grapes. In 1958 André Jacquart introduced a new spirit in the family, producing his own estate-bottled Champagne in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger Grand Cru.
Since 2004, Champagne André Jacquart has been located in Vertus Premier Cru. Major work was undertaken and the fifth generation, represented by Marie Doyard (the granddaughter of André Jacquart) stepped in to run the business and inspire it with her own philosophy. Interestingly, Marie’s paternal grandfather, Maurice Doyard, was instrumental in the creation of the AOC Champagne and the delimitation of its vineyard areas.
André Jacquart’s 60 acres are all sustainably farmed under “culture raisonnee” guidelines and are HVE3 certified.
Champagne Solera is a Blanc de Blancs obtained from Chardonnay grapes coming from Premier Cru vineyards in Vertus, within Côte des Blancs.WINEMAKING & AGEING
