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.
