Meet the Maison: Rodolphe Frerejean-Taittinger
Experience the grandeur of the Côte des Blancs in this exclusive champagne tasting, hosted by Rodolphe Frerejean Taittinger from Maison Frerejean Frères. Please note this is an Emperor Champagne Club Event. You must be a member to join the champagne tasting.
Based in the Grand Cru village of Avize, Frerejean Frères is led by Head Winemaker Didier Pierson, who crafts high quality, terroir-driven champagnes. Working alongside Didier is Rodolphe Frerejean Taittinger, CEO and co-founder of the house, a visionary who thrives on mixing innovation with tradition. Combining long ageing, premium fruit from the best crus and uber cool bottle designs, this house is pushing the boundaries of champagne making.
Kyri Christodoulou & Rodolphe Frerejean Taittinger will dive into the story of the house, founded between the three brothers: Guillaume, Richard and Rodolphe. Living between Paris & Champagne, they're the latest generation in a line of cannon-makers, who supplied the French army during the Napoleonic Wars.
