Hussards 2012 Immergée (EN)


In 2018, Maison Frerejean Frères attempted an unprecedented experience: the immersion in the Atlantic Ocean of the cuvée des Hussards 2012 Premier Cru.

At a depth of 60 meters, off the island of Ouessant, these bottles of Blanc de Blancs are stored for 12 months. The darkness is almost total, the temperature constant, the maximum humidity and the pressure of 6 bars optimal.

They did this aging for the first time and the result was wonderful.

Supple, easy-drinking champagne, the acidity doesn't clash with the palate.


Generous champagne with great intensity.

Long on the palate

Champagne aromas linger on the palate.


"A superb cuvée with a nose of white fruits, a fresh palate with tension and great length. The aging has been slowed by this iodine immersion and offers a wine of exceptional beauty. Paired with a king crab with yuzu butter, it's exceptional."

About this house

"Our founders, Guillaume, Richard and Rodolphe Frerejean-Taittinger, live between Paris and the Champagne region, with their families. They are the last-born of a line of cannon makers, who supplied the French army against Prussian attacks during the Napoleonic wars.

Our approach to champagne is different: rich in the expertise of a family team specialized in champagne, which respects traditional methods, yet is open to innovation. "
