Champagne Fleury BdN Brut NV

Côte des Bar, Champagne, FranceA winegrowing family for four generations, Champagne Fleury has been organic since 1970, and biodynamic since 1989. They own 15 hectares in the Aube, 90% of which are planted to pinot noir. Their success with biodynamics have inspired others in the village to begin farming this way, and Fleury are the largest certified biodynamic producer in Champagne. The winery is now in the capable hands of Jean-Sébastien Fleury and his sister Morgane. This biodynamic blanc de noir is entirely pinot noir, from the village of Courteron. This was native fermented in vats with full MLF and low sulphur, with reserve wines held in large format oak. It was disgorged in May 2022. Pouring a light gold hue, this shows perfumed cherry, raspberry, and light toast, with kisses of meringue and a layer of toast. Nicely structural, with good length and a lingering kimmeridgian buzz lending charm.Tasted: 07 May 2023Tasted by: Prices:
