Jacquart’s head winemaker, Floriane Eznack, was quoted in The Drinks Business when she joined the house in 2011, “My role is not to make a big change but to define the style and stick to it.” The style, as she defines it, is smooth and textured, with a focus on bright acidity.
The Mosaic Collection was introduced to mark Jacquart’s 50th anniversary. It’s a fine tribute to the house, if the three wines I tasted are an indication. Any - or all - will be welcome at holiday festivities of any sort.

The Jacquart Blanc de Blancs 2006 vintage shows apple and citrus on the nose, with a lovely palate of lemon peel and a slight hint of toast. All Chardonnay, the wine leaves me wanting more, with a beautiful expression of creme brûlée on the finish.
