Champagne Frerejean Frères
Notre Maison de Champagne
A FAMILY PASSION
The three Frerejean-Taittinger brothers build on the deep entrenched family heritage and local expertise to create craft Champagne inspired by modern luxury. Frerejean Frères is found in the most distinguish dining restaurants, prestige hotels and luxury outlets around the world.
Frerejean Frères is a Champagne of character; both complex and elegant, produced from some of the best parcels across the Côte des Blancs. The production process honors the land, with a low-chemical approach, using minimal pesticides and low levels of sulfites in their cuvées. Chef de Caves - Didier Pierson hails from a long line of growers in Avize and meticulously hand-selects the grapes for the champagne.
Crafting a bottle of Frerejean Frères takes at least five years, and up to twelve years for some cuvées. This immense dedication to the aging process allows minimal dosage for the finer notes of the terroir to shine through. Frerejean Frères Champagnes are wines of luxury and character; both complex and elegant. The three brothers take their time...
