Fleury Blanc de Noirs Brut Champagne

$54.99

This is a real-deal Champagne from Courteron, a village in the Aube department of Champagne, closer to Chablis than the city of Reims! Their methods are as Burgundian as their location. They practice biodynamic farming, which is the strictest form of organic viticulture. The assemblage of several Pinot Noir vines from different years results in a very expressive and intense Champagne. Fruity and delicate, this elegant and long-lasting Champagne is classic, smooth and quite rich in style. Mr. Fleury’s obsession with quality shows through in the wine; it is the most exciting all-Pinot Noir blanc de noirs in our stock. The dosage is very low–one of the driest Champagnes we have–with a wonderful black-cherry-fruit quality that reminds us that it is all Pinot! It is long and refreshing and very well balanced

  The original ‘green’ Champagne producer, organic since 1970 and biodynamic since 1989. I picked the Brut Sonate 2011 to include in my book, which is a little more expensive, but this blanc de noirs is also brilliant, rich and creamy but dancing with a salty minerality. (JA)   (12/2017)

  Beautiful florals with light and bright red fruit and brioche pastry. The palate has a crisp, silky feel with fine, red-fruit flavors. From organically grown grapes.   (7/2018)

91 points Wine Spectator

  This balanced version is lightly mouthwatering and open-knit, an accessible Champagne with a fine range of crushed black raspberry, blood orange granita, toast and spice flavors. (AN, Web-2017)
