Cuvée 742 is based on the 2014 vintage – a varied year in Champagne that required meticulous selection. The Chiquet brothers are constantly fine-tuning, and this year saw the wine aged on lees under cork rather than crown cap, and two months further ageing in oak. The result is even more complex than previous releases.
Cuvée 742 has a powerful aromatic complexity with minty, floral and orchard fruit elements, while the fresh, generous yet silky texture is supported by fresh, well-judged acidity. Intelligent, supple and full of energy.
