Champagne Fleury Fleur De L'Europe Brut Nature
Champagne Fleury has been run by the Fleury family for over a century, with each generation contributing to its reputation for innovation. In 1901, Emile Fleury became the first grower in Champagne to replant Pinot Noir after phyloxerra. His son, Robert Fleury, then made the unusual decision to bottle his own champagne in 1929. In the 1970s, Jean-Pierre Fleury became concerned about the effects of chemical agriculture on the environment and began experimenting with manual tilling and composting followed by a trial of biodynamy on 3 hectares of the estate in 1989. Within 3 years he decided to apply those principles to the entirety of his vineyard holdings. Located in the Côtes de Bar in the village of Courteron, the Fleury estate vineyards stretch 15 hectares on both slopes of the Seine valley.
85% Pinot Noir, 15% Chardonnay, zero dosage. This wine is the result of a special pressing of the grapes (the fleur) that reserves the optimum juice for this cuvee to ensure a rich yet delicate must. Clear and fine bubbles suggesting an impression of lightness. Honey and dry fruits aromas, long mouthfeel, vinous and mineral. First Champagne made from biodynamic vineyard, this cuvee is all about aromatic freshness, very expressive because of the Pinot Noir but balanced with the finesse of the Chardonnay. Serve as an aperitif, sea food or grilled fish.
