About the Champagne Maker
For decades now, the basis of Champagne JACQUART'S fortunes has been the ingrained knowledge of their 600 growers to produce the right quality fruit from over 800 hectares stretching across all the main regions of Champagne, especially the Montagne de Reims, the Vallée de la Marne and the Côte des Blancs.
Their vineyards are spread over 130 different villages of which 22 are rated as Premier Crus and 10 as Grand Crus.
Grapes are sourced from all over the Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée of Champagne; they come from the top cru vineyards thus positioning JACQUART cuvées above 90% in the échelle des crus.
The JACQUART cuvées are made with the utmost care in Reims. More than 30 million bottles are kept 20 metres underground in the three-tiered cellars.
Professionals and consumers all over the world are familiar with the style and quality of JACQUART Champagne. Showing the Champagnes at well attended tastings has rewarded the brand with international acclaim, in France, throughout most of Europe, in the United States and in Asia- not forgetting of course, Australia!
About the Champagne
Champagne Jacquart 'Brut Mosaique' is undoubtedly the most outstanding Champagne in the Jacquart range, particularly when one considers it’s recent awards and it’s most affordable value for money. It is a skillful blend where Chardonnay is the dominant grape variety (35%-40%), giving Brut Mosaïque its freshness and delicate aromas. Pinot Noir (35%-40%) 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 20% reserve wine ensures regularity of style, while more than three years ageing and a light dosage of 10g/l result in a balanced and complex champagne.
This results in a sensational pale yellow champagne with tints of white gold and a stream of fine bubbles. 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. The flavour is fresh and supple. Full, with a long fruity finish.
Ready to drink anytime and anywhere! Day or night, as an aperitif or with fish or cheese. For a special occasion or meal or for sharing with friends, Brut Mosaïque makes the moment.
Frederik Deceuninck from Restaurant SEL GRIS, Knokke Heist, Belgium (Winner of the Champagne JACQUART Trophy 2008) suggests serving this champagne with “Red mullet with cream of marinated Dublin Bay prawns, served on a bed of salad leaves, exotic fruit and fresh coriander.”
