I’m a big fan of the wines of Jacques Picard, and I enjoy tracking their evolution over time in my cellar. Unfortunately, following the progress of these wines can be difficult - it is hard to tell how old a particular non-vintage cuvée is since there are no clearly printed disgorgement dates on the bottles. However, Jacques Picard does throw us a bone by giving us a small code on the bottom of the front label with some disgorgement date information.

The code on the lower left of the Jacques Picard labels is L

where:

L: Means “Lot”

: An identifier of the wine type. For example if X = 1, it signifies the NV Sélection Brut.

: This identifies the year of disgorgement. So, if ## = 09 then the wine was disgorged in 2009. If ## = 10 then the wine was disgorged in 2010.

With the above information, you can now tell the disgorgement date of your favorite Jacques Picard cuvée.
