Described by Forbes as “a leading example in the quiet revolution in champagne”, Frerejean Frères is at the forefront of the grower champagne movement. The champagne house has been run by brothers Guillaume, Rodolphe & Richard, who are also cousins to the Taittinger family, since 2014. They are firmly committed to respecting the land and allowing the fruit to shine. Employing a low-chemical approach, they minimize pesticide use and sulphite levels.

The Frerejean Frères’ team stays true to a small-scale, environmentally friendly approach (only 150,000 bottles are made annually across their cuvées). Their vineyards consist of small parcels in prestigious Grand and Premier Cru locations and are exclusively Chardonay and Pinot Noir. The brothers revive some of the oldest traditions of Champagne, including low dosage and extended lees ageing (5 years and up). The extended lees ageing adds depth and finesse to their Premier Cru Blanc de Blancs which is bigger and silkier than many others of its kind. This wine features regularly in ‘top choice’ selections, including The Independent’s 10 Best Grower Champagnes for Fizz with Personality.
