Jacquesson & Fils Champagne Dizy Terres Rouges Rosé 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Jacquesson farm 6 hectares of the lieu -dit of Terres Rouge, located in the<br/>Premier Cru village of Dizy, and so-called because of its distinctive<br/>reddish-brown calcerous soils. The vineyard is shared equally between Pinot<br/>Noir and Pinot Meunier, but the latter is in the ascendant in 2004, making up<br/>71% of the blend. 2004, after the excesses of 2003, was a much more classic<br/>vintage, the excellent September weather contributing to a large but generally<br/>highly -regarded crop of fruit. <br/> <br/>The wine, having been vinified and aged in oak foudres, combines the classical<br/>austerity which one has come to expect from Jacquesson, with a fruity richness<br/>that one associates generally with a Rosé, more specifically from one<br/>dominated by Pinot Meunier, 10% of which has been added by assemblage. Biscuit,<br/>brioche and even hints of pain au raisin here; one is clearly in the<br/>boulangerie; then the red berries and gentle herbs, but the low sugar (4 g/l<br/>sugar) and oak-influenced winemaking lend a gravitas to the mouth-feel, which<br/>is by turns pure, powerful and finely-focused. <br/>(Simon Field MW, BBR Buyer)
