The Rich Heritage of Champagne Frerejean Freres

Nestled among the picturesque rolling hills of vines in the Côte des Blancs, Champagne, lies the grand cru village of Avize. Renowned for its chalky soil, this region produces a remarkably mineral Chardonnay that is truly unique to the area.

A Symphony of Unique Grapes

Within this extraordinary terroir, each tiny parcelle of land yields grapes with distinct characteristics. Champagne Frerejean Freres skillfully blends these diverse grape varieties to craft exquisite and harmonious Champagnes that captivate the senses.

A Home Rooted in Tradition

With a profound knowledge of the region, Champagne Frerejean Freres takes pride in calling Avize their home. Their founders, Guillaume, Richard, and Rodolphe Frerejean-Taittinger were born and raised in this very land, spending their childhood exploring the vineyards on their bicycles. Today, they continue to split their time between Paris and Champagne, preserving the legacy of their family's winemaking tradition.

A Heritage of Craftsmanship

The lineage of Champagne Frerejean Freres traces back to a family of cannon-makers who supplied the French army during the Napoleonic Wars, defending the region against the Prussians. In 2005, the brothers embarked on their journey of Champagne production, initially crafting Champagne for their inner circle. Word of mouth quickly spread, leading them to establish their own business.

A Fresh Approach to Champagne Making

At Champagne Frerejean Freres, they adopt a fresh perspective on Champagne production. Striving to honour tradition while embracing innovation, they create Champagnes that harmoniously blend old and new techniques.

Small-Scale Craftsmanship

Despite their global presence, Champagne Frerejean Freres remains committed to their small-scale approach. Their champagnes are meticulously crafted with traditional techniques and uncompromising expertise. Using the finest parcelles of vines from the Côte des Blancs region, they produce characterful wines that embody complexity and elegance, exclusively sourced from Premier Cru and Grand Cru vineyards.

A Commitment to Quality and Sustainability

Champagne Frerejean Freres demonstrates their commitment to quality from the moment the grapes are hand-selected on the vine. Respecting the land and employing a low-chemical approach, they minimize the use of pesticides on their vines and maintain low levels of sulphites in their champagnes. The meticulous fermentation process culminates in the careful assembly of each Champagne, incorporating different grape varieties, vintages, and crus to create the final cuvée.

The Art of Time

Champagne Frerejean Freres understands that great Champagne cannot be rushed. The Champagne is turned by hand, reflecting the craftsmanship and dedication invested in every bottle. Minimal sugar is added in the final stages to preserve the distinct terroir style. It takes between 4 and 12 years to bring each bottle of Frerejean Freres champagne to perfection, as they steadfastly honour the passage of time.
