NV Extra Brut Premier Cru FJF Frerejean Frères

50% Chardonnay and 50% Pinot Noir from plots over 40 years old in Premier and Grand Cru vineyards of the Côte des Blancs.

On  the  nose,  noticeable  presence  of  a  perfect  balance.  A  Chardonnay with shy aromas of toasted almonds, tempered by a mineral and tense Pinot noir.   On the palate, at first the Chardonnay shows notes of can-died  apples  and  pears,  evolving  with  aromas  of  a  home-made brioche, which are all signs of prolonged aging in the cellar.  This  champagne  remains  tense  thanks  to  the  Pinot  noir which awakens the wine and frames it with a slight hint of salinity and energetic acidity. As a whole it is refined by a very low sugar dosage which allows the aromas to develop in a natural and clear ways.
