Frerejean Freres founders, Guillaume, Richard and Rodolphe Frerejean-Taittinger, started out making Champagne for friends and family, but word spread, and we 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.

"An expressive nose of citrus, white flowers and summer fruits. A silky palette, developing into layers of white fruits, with a beautifully mineral finish." Frerejean Freres
