Another release, another beauty. A sophisticated and beautiful bouquet of Jerez, chalk, honey, lychee and lemon candy. Round, well-balanced with great volume and some evolution of the taste. Generous and delicious.

Consistent Jacquesson level. 745 is a sophisticated wine that balances well delicacy and expressiveness. Jerez, chalk, honey, stone fruits and lemon candy. Round, fresh, persistent and almost perfectly balanced. It shows the evolution of taste and long aftertaste. Just wow.

Wine #7 on Mixed Bag Vol. 7.

One of my favourite NV Champagnes. And I am happy that everyone I shared this wine with enjoyed it that much. A friendly and sophisticated style at the same time. A mixture of chalk, Jerez, honey, stone fruits and lemon candy. Round, fresh, flavourful, persistent and almost perfectly balanced. Criminal level of deliciousness.

Tasted blind and didn’t guess. Even more, I literally said that it’s a traditional sparkling of a very good effort, but probably not Champagne. Somehow it lacked acidity and aftertaste. Baked apple with cinnamon and a half-spoon of honey. Gingerbread! After some time it reveals notes of Jerez with wet earth. It’s fresh - the acidity is good, it could be higher, but there is nothing to counterbalance it. It lacks structure and persistence. The pear candy in the finish is really nice. Overall nice, but the other bottle of 745 I tasted recently was completely different (and that’s not only my experience). The only observable difference - lot numbers (L18 vs L28).

P.S. Initially, I rated it 8.0 (e.g. 4.0/5.0) but increased it a bit after tasting all the other wines of the evening.
