André Jacquart is a family-owned Maison, producing artisanal Champagnes of excellent quality and elegant, refined style. Its origins date back to 1908, when the family purchased the first vineyards in Mesnil-sur-Oger, a famous Cru on the Côte des Blancs. In 1958 the Maison was officially created, and within a few decades it emerged as one of the most vibrant and interesting in the area, so much so that Michel Jacquart also became president of the Récoltants-Manipulants au Syndicat Général des Vignerons and a member of the INAO. Since 2004 the domaine has been managed by Marie Doyard-Jacquart, who has helped to develop sales in international markets and to bring some innovations: a return to barrel winemaking to increase the complexity of the wines, longer ageing to give greater intensity and maturity of taste, and very low dosages to enhance the purity of wines of excellent quality.
Under Marie's impetus, the Maison's success grew rapidly, and by 2010 the old site in Mesnil-sur-Oger was now insufficient for production volumes. A new winery was thus built in the nearby hamlet of Vertus. Over the years, awareness also grew of the value of the environment and biodiversity in the vineyard, prerequisites for genuine grapes and healthy wines. The process has led the Maison to adopt cultivation techniques that are increasingly respectful of nature, culminating in the Haute Valeur Environnementale HVE level 3 certification achieved in 2019 to crown a virtuous path.
Maison André Jacquart's vineyards are located in the extraordinary territory of Mesnil-sur-Oger and Vertus, characterized by soils composed of chalk and limestone banks, which give the wines an exceptional finesse and crystalline mineral freshness. These particular soils of the Côte des Blancs are very suitable for the cultivation of Chardonnay. Mesnil-sur-Oger is classified Grand Cru and gives refined wines of great freshness. Vertus, on the other hand, is a Premier Cru located in the southern part of the Côte des Blancs and is famous for its lively, mineral wines with a rich, enveloping sip. The base wines do not undergo malolactic fermentation to preserve the expressive tension typical of great Chardonnays. The result is a range of labels that faithfully interpret the characteristics of the terroir.
