AOC Champagne Fleury Carte Rouge (jeroboam)
Produced in the Champagne region of France, this delightful vintage is the handiwork of the master biodynamic winemaker Jean-Sébastien Fleury. Thanks to his sustainable wine-growing practices and quality terroir, this is a vintage that deserves a place in any celebration. This organic wine is bold, with strong bready notes and a fine balance and weight. Produced from Pinot Noir grapes, the champagne is both delicate and fruity. You'll love the strong raspberry flavour that comes out of the vintage, with accents of ginger and vanilla to back it up. There are piercing aromatic notes of lemon wax, red fruit, and hazelnut, and a mouth-wateringly perfect balance between acidity and sweetness.
Biodynamic since 1989, Champagne Fleury has always been a trailblazing estate. In 1904 Emile Fleury was the first to plant grafted pinot noir vines in the area post-phylloxera. In 1929 his son Robert took the plunge and decided to make single-vintage champagnes. Subsequently, Jean-Pierre Fleury was the first grower in Champagne to convert to biodynamics. He began with just 3 hectares, then in 1992 the whole estate. The Fleury vineyards are located on chalky slopes on both sides of the Seine valley, 90% planted with pinot noir and the rest with chardonnay.
