Jacquesson’s Cuvée 736 is base year 2008 and was finished with a dosage of 1.5 grams per liter. The cépages here is fifty-three percent chardonnay, twenty-nine percent pinot noir and eighteen percent pinot meunier, with just over a third of the blend being reserve wines. This wine has blossomed nicely and is even more ready to drink than the Cuvée 737, as the wine wafts from the glass in a wide open and complex constellation of pear, apple, fresh-baked bread, chalky minerality, a touch of fresh almond and that signature upper register smokiness of this bottling. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, crisp and focused, with a fine core, pinpoint bubbles, and a long, complex and vibrant finish. The Cuvée 736 is now entering its plateau of peak maturity, where it should continue to cruise along with style and grace for another couple of decades. (Drink between 2017-2035) 92+  (8/2017)
