Frerejean Frères Extra Brut 2006 Premier Cru

Extra Brut 2006

$250.00

- 2006 Vintage

- 50% Chardonnay and 50% Pinot Noir from plots over 40 years old inPremier and Grand Cru vineyards of the Côte des Blancs

- Aged 11 years on lees

The ripeness and softness of the Pinot Noir, combined with the freshness and finesse of the Chardonnay, allowed for a very low dosage. Aromas of dried and candied fruits, followed by notes of mature fruits and marzipan.

18/20 Jancis Robinson
"Deep gold. Mmm, delightfully pronounced autolysis on the nose with notes of umami plus brioche. Fine bead is decidedly gentle. Very serious wine that’s not austere at all. A particularly satisfying Extra Brut. Drink 2018-2024"
