2022 Les Cordères P & M Jacqueson

Grapes Aligoté
Colour White
Origin France, Burgundy
District Côte Chalonnaise
Village Bouzeron
ABV 13%
Vineyard Les Cordères

(Tasted in October this was bottled in August). The Bouzeron comes from a vineyard planted in 1937. It spends 10 months in old barrels. This perfectly judged élevage is spot on. Wow - the fresh lick of acidity is so pure and drives this on with real joyous verve. Crisp - silky smooth and arrow like energy. Finishes with some weight and polished concentrated mass. Serious Aligoté which will be hard to resist but will age for years. L&S (Oct 2023)

Don’t miss out on the majestic 2022 Bouzeron, Les Cordères, from P&M Jacqueson, it’s a gloriously nutty, mineral and wood-smoke gem.Jane MacQuitty, The Times (Apr 2024)

Aroma of zingy grapefruit and slightly herbal. I wondered if this was slightly corked but I think it is just very dry and stony on the palate. Steely, mineral, long. (JH) 13% Drinking range: 2025 - 2028 Rating: 16 Julia Harding MW, (Feb 2024)

P & M Jacqueson

The domaine was founded in 1946 by Henri Jacqueson and passed to his son Paul. Marie joined her father in 2006 and since 2015 she and her brother Pierre run the estate, now known simply as P&M Jacqueson. The domaine consists of 18 hectares of vines, mostly in Rully, but also 5 in Mercurey and some in Bouzeron. The team also tend vines owned by their neighbours and make some beautiful wines from other peoples' fruit that they themselves have worked all year.

Traditional methods meticulously applied inspire everything they do: the grapes are harvested by hand and vinified in classical fashion, before an élevage in barrel (up to 25% new wood for the reds, just 20% for the 1er Cru Whites). The domaine has become adept at a sophisticated use of barrels, the élevage here is key to the quality they consistently achieve.
