Extra Brut ages for five years rather than the usual three of the normal Jacquart Brut. With a higher percentage of Chardonnay (35-40%) and less Pinot Meunier (25-30%) with 30-35% Pinot Noir, Extra Brut also notably uses less than 4g/l of sugar resulting in a fine balance of freshness and maturity.

Honeyed toasty nose with shortcrust pasty and lemoncurd citrus.

Dry palate (as billed) but with honeyed notes balancing bracing acidity and chalky minerality with lemony citrus.
