Wines Cabernet Franc
A new Champagne House to the UK but one that over the years has become a firm favourite on the continent. The three brothers, from the Frerejean-Taittinger family, have embarked on a mission to revive some of the oldest traditions of Champagne and notably the sabrage. As the lot tear about London lopping off bottle caps, with the help of our Wine Director Tom Harrow, the Champagne has caused quite a stir.

Extra long maturation in their cellars for a minimum of 5 years on the lees, all premier cru vineyards, and all with a complexity to rival any 'branded' Champagne on the market.

The Cabernet Franc Grape

Cabernet Franc is a bit of a heavyweight in the wine world: a global black grape variety, principally grown for blending in the Bordeaux style, a single varietal particularly in the Loire, France, and it is a parent of Cabernet Sauvignon. Ripening a little earlier than its offspring, Cabernet Franc is often planted as an insurance in case Cabernet Sauvignon doesn’t fully ripen. It is in the world’s Top 20 of grape varieties planted. Found in the USA, Canada (where it is getting a reputation as a great Ice Wine), China, Kazakhstan, the Southern Hemisphere New World and of course Europe.
