Noble Spirits has added a premium brand to its portfolio – Frerejean Frères Champagnes.
The Frerejean-Taittinger brothers grew up with love and respect for the Champagne tradition and were surrounded by prestigious Champagne makers. They built their own Maison de Champagne, an independent house, as a tribute to their passion for the historical terroir. Today, Guillaume, Richard and Rodolphe are fulfilling their vision of producing cuvées in the manner of great wines.
In the quest of authenticity and purity, Frerejean Frères only work with grape variety from Premier Cru coming from the famous Côte des Blancs (9% of the best vines in Champagne). The Frerejean Frères Premier Cru Champagnes are aged for a minimum of five years in the cellar.
Frerejean Frères is having great success overseas, with their Champagne available in 2 and 3 Michelin Star venues such as The Dorchester in London, Coi Restaurant in San Francisco, Le Grand Véfour in Paris and Bocuse in Lyon.
Frerejean Frères are breaking the codes, it is not just a drink for ‘special occasions’, but a refined drink for summer and the festive season.
Noble Spirits has brought the full range of this premium brand here for the Australian consumer. This includes the Brut Premier Cru, which is characterised by the tastes of crystallised fruits, spices and honey, and made from a blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. The delicate and satin textured Blanc de Blancs, which is made from Chardonnay of different years; and finally Cuvée des Hussards, a powerful gastronomy champagne that is well supported by a creamy and delicate foam, with scents of candied fruits and saffron spice. This range has already been picked up by premium independent bottles shops and prestigious restaurants across Australia.
Rodolphe Frerejean-Taittinger, one of the three owners, will be visiting Australia in November. He will be running masterclasses and sharing his knowledge of Champagne and Frerejean Frères. This is an exciting time for Noble Spirits and the Champagne world in Australia.
