VV26 GRAND CRU

FREREJEAN FRÈRES, AVIZE, FRANCE

VV26 GRAND CRU
VV26 GRAND CRU

Aged for eight years and sealed with a traditional ‘agrafe,’ this is the “main course” Champagne, with serious richness and depth. Like the Hussards, we recommend drinking this in a wine glass rather than a flute: it needs to open up and express itself. In fact, we suggest drinking all champagne in a wine glass…
Vinification 100% Grand Cru Chardonnay from the 2008 and 2009 Vintages, this wine spends 7 months in Argonne oak casks and 8 years on lees.
Tasting Notes Almonds, vanilla, and custard on the nose, with an incredibly rich and complex palate. A wine that balances the appeal of great Champagne with a touch of a great white Burgundy.
Food Think main course: game would be ideal, as would Pot au Feu or a complex stew.
Cellar Drink anytime before 2030
