Boisset Family Estates is an innovative, eco-minded, family-owned producer and importer of fine wines based in Burgundy, France. Founded in 1980, we offer wines from a variety of countries and key production regions around the world, seeking to express the qualities of our wines with an “art de vivre” and style that consistently enhance terroir, provenance, history, heritage and quality. Each house in our family of wineries has a unique history, identity, and style, yet all are united in the pursuit of superior quality. Simultaneously, we lead innovations in the wine world that address climate change, reduce waste and CO2 emissions, and protect the long-term sustainability of winegrowing. This approach has helped us to build a diverse and balanced portfolio that provides wines for every moment, mode of consumption, and occasion. Jean-Charles Boisset, President of Boisset Family Estates, grew up in the vineyards and developed a life-long passion for wine – both its production and its enjoyment. He possesses a long-term vision for his family’s company that stems from a dedication to innovation and the environment while continually focusing on crafting fine wines of distinction. This vision has led to pioneering efforts in sustainability from the vineyard to the vessel. He has implemented sustainable, organic, and biodynamic farming practices at the family’s vineyards, while simultaneously introducing alternative packaging innovations that reduce a wine’s environmental impact and carbon footprint.

The secret of sparkling wines is the blend, whether they are from Champagne or other regions of France. This is the winemakers art. It is the choices he makes that determines what is often referred to as the House style. The style of Charles de Fre is to voluntarily refuse territorial limits, building close partnership relations with growers so that we can select cuves from northerly vineyards for their freshness and elegance, together with cuves from southern vineyards for ripe fruit, body and smoothness. This bold approach adds finesse, structure, and a complex harmony of flavors that makes Charles de Fre what it is today.

This pale gold wine has white fruit aromas with a touch of hazelnut. The palate is elegant and long lasting.

Tasting Notes:

This sparkling wine is a blend of Chardonnay, Ugni Blanc, and Chenin. The nose includes notes of white fruit and bread dough with a hint of hazelnut. The long-lasting palate contains full flavors of butter and ripe apple. Recommended as a holiday aperitif, or to pair with French cheeses and crusty bread.
