94 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "Jacquesson's NV Extra-Brut Cuvée No. 738 Dégorgement Tardif (2010 base) is superb. So fresh and vibrant in the glass, the 738 dazzles from start to finish. Lemon confit, white flowers, almond and dried orchard fruit all race out of the glass. The Dégorgement Tardif was aged on cork and spent ninety-six months on the lees, which works so well in preserving the wine's freshness and explosive energy. Time in the glass brings out the wine's tension and vibrancy. This release is based on the 2010 vintage, with 33% reserve wines. The blend is 61% Chardonnay, 21% Pinot Meunier and 18% Pinot Noir. Disgorged July 2019. Dosage is 0.75 grams per liter. Drink: 2020-2030. (Aug 2020)"
94 points Yohan Castaing (Decanter): "Based on 2010 vintage, this possesses a stunning, yet complex bouquet of liquorice, apricot, smoke with menthol and fresh notes. With 96 months on lees, the palate is pure with a creamy texture, but perfectly balanced with remarkable overall precision. An excellent choice for drinking now and over the next few years. Disgorged in June 2019 and has a dosage of 0.75g/l. Drinking Window: 2020-2030. (Sep 2020)"
93 points Allen Meadows (Burghound): "(from the 2010 harvest from Aÿ, Dizy, Hautvillers, Avize and Oiry, plus some reserve wines; disgorgement June 2019 after 96 months on the lees, dosage 0.75 g/L). A fully mature and attractively yeasty nose is beautifully complex, freely offering up notes of baked bread, poached pear and lemon confit. There is the same outstanding complexity on the utterly delicious flavors that are underpinned by a moderately fine mousse, all wrapped in a lingering and balanced finale. Despite the low dosage, this drinks less dry than the Extra Brut designation would suggest. In sum, this is really lovely stuff. Drink: now+. (Oct 2020)"
