Aged for eight years and sealed with a traditional agrafe, Frerejean Frères VV26 Blanc des Blancs is creamy and mineral. They source the Chardonnay grapes from 90-year-old Grand Cru vieilles vignes, including vines that dates back to 1926, then leave them in oak barrels for seven months, blending the best of 2008 and 2009 harvests from their Côte des Blancs vineyards.

"Bright gold. Very fine bead. Particularly arresting bready nose. The Chardonnay tension is evident only on the very end of a delicate, creamy palate. Hint of putty. Really very good indeed." 17.5/20 - Jancis Robinson

“The combination of these two great vintages gives a Champagne of extraordinary intensity and complexity, all wrapped up with a silky texture.” 94/100 - Bordeaux Index, Fine Wine & Spirits Merchant

“This beautiful cuvee offers us a moment of greed and of a sublime intensity. It is a lovely meeting for the passionates of wines and wines of Champagne.” Fabrice Sommier, MOF Sommellerie (2007)

"A bright golden colour. Wonderful Champagne with reverberant character with aroma reminiscent of balmy spices, vanilla, Brioche, nuts and dried yellow stone fruits. Hints of candied lemon zest in the background. On the palate well balanced with intense flavour reminiscent of mild spices, Brioche and yellow stone fruit, hints of honey and roasted almonds in the background. Truly a Grand Cru quality with aromatic depth and length "blending" freshness and maturity." 95/100 - Markus del Monego MW

"A blend of the 2009 and 2008 vintages, Frerejean Frères' NV Brut Blanc de Blancs VV26 was disgorged after eight years on the lees. Bursting from the glass with a rich bouquet of dried citrus fruit, yellow apples, honeycomb, toasted bread and walnuts, it's full-bodied, fleshy and enveloping, with a frothy mousse and a generous, expressive palate that's underpinned by lively acids. This is showing beautifully in its somewhat old-fashioned style and comes warmly recommended. The VV26 is a blend of Chardonnay from Cremant, Avize and Oger—dominated by the former to the tune of 90%—from older parcels, some of which date back to 1926. It's the highlight of the range by some margin." 94/100 - William Kelley, Wine Advocate
