"A silky palette, developing into layers of white fruits, with a beautifully mineral finish."

Frerejean Frères founders, Guillaume, Richard and Rodolphe Frerejean-Taittinger, started out making Champagne for friends and family, but word spread, and they went into business in 2005. They take a fresh approach to Champagne, that respects traditional methods, but leaves room for innovation. Their Champagne is now sold in hand-selected outlets the world over, but have stayed true to a small-scale approach.

Named in homage to Napoleon’s light cavalry - who were the first to use sabrage, the opening of a bottle of champagne with a sabre in celebration - Cuvée des Hussards is powerful and expressive. They craft it from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes, from vieilles vignes of more than 40 years old, specifically chosen for the chalky soil that gives an elegant minerality.

"Pale yellow colour with slightly greenish hue. Delightful nose reminiscent of lemon zest, green figs, greengage, Nashi pear, starfruit and a discreet hint of iodine marine air. On the palate well structured with crisp acidity, lively and fine mousseux, exquisite fruit flavour on the restrained side, distinct minerality. An excellent wine with depth and salivary character." 98 pts, Markus del Monego MW

"Lush, plush and very luxurious with layered notes of dried apple, honey and soft spices. The palate is pure velvet and savoury, braced with toasted nut and the merest hint of smoke. Accomplished Winemaking!” 97 pts, Decanter World Wine Awards, Platinum Award Winner
