Jacquinot and Fils
Champagne house Jacquinot et Fils is a family estate whose roots in Epernay in France's Champagne region date back to the 17th century.

In 1918, Pierre Jacquinot commercially developed the family vineyard, which dates back to the French Revolution, and acted as both a grape broker and Champagne wine merchant. Ten years later, Pierre purchased his own press and began to make wine out of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier.

A passionate violinist, Pierre named these wines to reflect the fact. With titles such as Symphonie (Vintage) and Harmonie (produced only in exceptional vintages) the Jacquinot brand also features a treble clef as a tribute to its founder. Pierre's two sons Jacques and Jean-Guy joined their father's business in 1947 and officially created the Jacquinot et Fils brand. Jacques directed the marketing activity, while Jean-Guy oversaw the vineyards, which totalled over 17 hectares.

Today, Pierre's grandsons are at the head of the business and grape production. Champagne Jacquinot et Fils still supplies fruit to other Champagne houses in the region.
Champagne
Champagne is a wine region to the north-east of Paris where wine has been grown since the Romans first planted in the 5th century and the region is most well known for the sparkling wine that goes by the regions name.

Champagne is made from 3 grapes. The two red grapes Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier and the white grape Chardonnay. All three are commonly blended though a ‘blanc de blanc’ meaning ‘white from white’ indicates that only Chardonnay was used. Conversely a ‘blanc de noir’ or ‘white from black’ indicates that the two red grapes were used.
A common misconception is that Champagne was invented by Dom Pérignon. Although this is not the case, he made considerable contributions to the quality and production methods used in the region. The very first bottles of Champagne were created by accident, and coined ‘the devil’s wine’ for all the popping corks. Sparkling wine in Australia was referred to as Champagne but this practise has long been disallowed.

Methode Champenoise is the traditional method by which Champagne is produced and if you see Millisime on a bottle, it represents the fact that the wine comes from a particular vintage rather than being blended, which is the more common practice.

Icons such as Dom Pérignon and Kristal are world reknowned, but we find as much pleasure in the smaller Champagne houses such as Gosset and Jacquinot. Magnums are perfect for the festive occasions and half bottles are also available.
