AOC Champagne Sonate No. 9
Made from 100% Pinot Noir with no added sulphur by the region's first biodynamic producer. Whether it's the lack of sulphur, or simply the unique terroir of the Côte de Bar, the flavours here are as intense as they are varied. True artisan wine of the highest quality, Champagne doesn't get any purer than this.

'Wild and exciting (biodynamically grown). The complexity of the aromas really lifts the wine out of the ordinary. Bone dry but with masses of wild-flower character and great texture. Admirable tension.' Jancis Robinson, December 2014 (2009 vintage)

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.
