Founded in 1798 by Memmie Jacquesson, Champagne Jacquesson quickly prospered, drawing the attention of Napoleon Bonaparte, who awarded it a gold medal in 1810 “for the beauty and wealth of its cellars.” Maison Jacquesson has continually honed its production techniques, maintaining its status among Champagne's most renowned producers through the generations. Bought in 1974 by the Chiquet family, the estate now focuses its efforts on producing extremely high quality wines, restricting themselves to 350,000 bottles annually in order to continue using non-industrial production methods that help create exemplary Champagnes. Thanks to more than 200 years of history and a unique and rigorous savoir-faire, Champagne Jacquesson is one of the luminaries of Champagne today.
