We Begin
with the
Earth

The Grand Cru village of Avize nestles between rolling hills of vines in the Côte des Blancs, Champagne.

The chalky soil in the area produces the beautifully mineral Chardonnay in our Grands Vins de Champagne.
Each tiny parcelle of land produces different grapes. We grew up riding our bikes through the vines and know every single one in the area.
With 30 years of Champagne expertise, our team is rooted in the region. That’s why we’re proud to call Avize home.
Family
Our founders, Guillaume, Richard and Rodolphe Frerejean-Taittinger, live between Paris and Champagne, with their families.

They’re the latest generation in a line of cannon-makers, who supplied the French army defending the region against the Prussians, during the Napoleonic Wars.
We started out making Champagne for friends and family. Word spread, and we went into business in 2005.
We take a fresh approach to Champagne, that respects traditional methods, but leaves room for innovation.

Our Champagne is now sold in hand-selected outlets the world over. But we have stayed true to a small-scale approach.
Craft
We produce champagnes with traditional craftsmanship and rigorous expertise. The fruit of the unique terroir of the Côte des Blancs region, our wines are crafted from the best parcelles of vines in the area.

They are wines of character; both complex and elegant, produced in Premier Cru and Grand Cru only.

With a focus on modern-day craftsmanship, we work the terroir using traditional methods.
Our production process honors
the land, with a low-chemical approach, using minimal pesticides on our vines and low levels of sulfites in our champagne.

From the moment the grapes are hand-selected on the vine, our focus is quality.
After fermentation, each Champagne is carefully ‘assembled’ from 25 wines from our different parcelles.

The Champagne is turned by hand several times a day as it ages. We have tens of thousands of bottles in our cellars at any one time, to be ‘riddled’.

We add minimal sugar in the final stages, to retain the style of the terroir.
It takes between 5 and 8 years to make each bottle of Frerejean Frères Brut Premier Cru, and at least 8 to make a vintage cuvée.

We take the time.
