Modern, precise and gourmet, the Jacquinet-Dumez Champagnes come from a specialized and passionate research. They are aimed at lovers of "Grands vins de Champagne".
Each vintage has built its own personality and knows how to be accessible. "Fresh maturity" is the common denominator of the House. The requirement of the winemaker is apparent, while leaving the full part to pleasure and sharing.
Through soil cultivation, the choice of vinification in vats and barrels, the control of relatively low doses, and a "picking" of wines at the right moment, Olivier presents different expressions of the Jacquinet-Dumez language.
The Jacquinet-Dumez Champagnes are the result of a specialized and passionate research, while leaving a lot to pleasure. Olivier Jacquinet practices, first and foremost, a sensible viticulture (soil cultivation, weeding, rational control).
