Champagne Frerejean Frères FJF NV Extra Brut 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.
50% Chardonnay, 50% Pinot Noir from plots over 40 years old, low brut dosage, aged for 5 years. The FJF Extra Brut Premier Cru is perfectly balanced, with a beautiful tension and acidity. Its expressive nose develops aromas of candied apples and dry fruits leading to aromas of toasted almonds. On the palate, nuances of white fruits, spices, candied fruits, honey and brioche are enhanced by a delicate mousse.
