Champagne Frerejean Frères FJF NV Blanc de Blancs Premier Cru, 750mL

The Frerejean Taittinger brothers are the latest generation in a line of cannon-makers, who supplied the French army defending the region against the Prussians, during the Napoleonic Wars. Frerejean Frères take a fresh approach to Champagne, which respects traditional methods, but leaves room for innovation. Rooted in the grand cru village of Avize, Frerejean Frères only uses grand cru and premier cru plots from the Côte des Blancs.

 

100% Chardonnay, low brut dosage, aged for 5 years.

The FJF Blanc de Blancs Premier Cru develops aromas of citrus fruits, passion fruit, mango and papaya, followed on the palate by a balanced intensity, minerality and a balanced acidity, delivering structure and elegance.

"Rich and reverberant. Lots of depth. Far from a typical Blanc de Blancs. Hint of oxidation which is what they want, apparently. Big and bold, very long. Obvious autolysis." 17/20 - JANCIS ROBINSON 

"One of the ultimate Blanc de Blancs on the market" RICHARD JUHLIN - The # 1 Champagne Expert in the World
