André Jacquart Champagne Grand Cru Brut Blanc de Blancs (2006)
For four generations, the parents and grandparents of AndrŽ Jacquart only produced Champagne grapes. In 1958 AndrŽ Jacquart introduced a new spirit in the family, producing his own estate-bottled Champagne in Le Mesnil-sur-Oger (Champagne Village classified Grand Cru). Since 2004, Champagne AndrŽ Jacquart has been located in Vertus (Champagne Village classified Premier Cru). Major work was undertaken and the fifth generation, represented by Marie Doyard and her brother Benoit (the grandchildren of AndrŽ Jacquart ) stepped in to run the business and inspire it with their own philosophy. Interestingly, Marie and BenoitÕs paternal grandfather, Maurice Doyard, was instrumental in the creation of the AOC Champagne and the delimitation of its vineyard areas.
