Champagne Frerejean Frères
14th November 2019
The three Frerejean-Taittinger brothers build on the deeply entrenched family heritage and local expertise to create craft Champagne inspired by modern luxury.
Frerejean Frères is a Champagne of character; both complex and elegant, produced from some of the best parcels across the Côte des Blancs. The production process honours the land, with a low-chemical approach, using minimal pesticides and low levels of sulfites in their cuvées. Chef de Caves – Didier Pierson hails from a long line of growers in Avize and meticulously hand-selects the grapes for the Champagne.
Crafting a bottle of Frerejean Frères takes at least five years and up to twelve years for some cuvées. This immense dedication to the ageing process allows minimal dosage for the finer notes of the terroir to shine through.
Maison Frerejean Frères is nestled between the rolling vineyards in the Grand Cru village of Avize. Renowned for the chalky, oceanic soils, the vines of Avize produce a uniquely mineral driven Chardonnay, exceptionally characterised in Frerejean Frères cuvées.
