Frerejean Freres Cuvee Des Hussards Champagne 2012
|Grapes||Pinot Noir, Chardonnay|
started out making Champagne for friends and family, but word spread, and we
went into business in 2005. They take a fresh approach to Champagne, that
respects traditional methods, but leaves room for innovation. Their Champagne is
now sold in hand-selected outlets the world over, but have stayed true to a
small-scale approach. Named in homage to Napoleon’s light cavalry - who were
the first to use sabrage, the opening of a bottle of champagne with a sabre in
celebration - Cuvée des Hussards is powerful and expressive. They craft it from
Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes, from vieilles vignes of more than 40 years
old, specifically chosen for the chalky soil that gives an elegant minerality.
"An expressive nose of citrus, white flowers and summer fruits. A silky palette,
developing into layers of white fruits, with a beautifully mineral finish."
