2005 Cuvée des Hussards Premier Cru FJF Frerejean Frères
Named in homage to Napoleon’s light cavalry - who were the first to use sabrage - Cuvée des Hussards is powerful and it pays tribute to an amazing vintage, 2005. This Blanc de Blancs, 100% chardonnay from Premier & Grand Cru plots, is undoubtedly a great wine of Champagne. Its grapes were handpicked from very special vine plots of 55 years of age before undergoing an aging of minimum 8 years in the cellar. After the disgorgement, the wine was underlined by a low dosage. A beautiful robe with a golden yellow and bright reflection. A thin bead of delicate and regular bubbles give to the eyes a moment of pure voluptuousness. This is how our exceptional vintage reveals itself. The nose is dense with touches of white and yellow candied fruits like apple, pear, apricot, peach with a medley of saffron and curry spices finishing with a touch of light toasted aromas. Serve at 10 ° or 12 °. Decanting highly recommended.
