Organic Champagne Wines

We're proud to have the amazing range from Champagne Fleury, the organic and biodynamic pioneers of the region who now also make a no added sulphur Champagne! Available in all sizes from quarter bottle to jeroboams. Travel about 150 kilometers to the east of Paris, and you enter the rolling hills and sunny slopes of the Champagne region. Here, you will find the ONLY producers in the world that produce true Champagne--everything else is "sparkling wine"!

The region’s proximity to Paris has made it one of the primary wine producers in the world, and it has developed a reputation for quality and class. Its terroir is unique, and it sits 100 miles east of Paris close to the northerly limits for wine regions. With its high altitude and an average temperature of 10 degrees C, it is harder to grow grapes–meaning those vines that flourish tend to be hardier. The result is a grape with high acidity, ideal for producing sparkling wines.

A more southerly area of Champagne exists a couple of hours drive south of Epernay. Called the Aube vineyards of the Côte de Bar, it is here our biodynamic Champagne producer Fleury, produces a range of award winning Champagnes, including Blancs de Noir, Blancs de Blancs, Rosé and Vintage, as well as a rare Pinot Blanc, and a Sulphur Free Champagne also.

There are a number of wines that come from the Champagne wine region:
• Non-Vintage (NV) is the most traditional champagne production method, blending multiple vintages and varieties to provide a consistent blend.
• Vintage Millésime is wine produced in any of the years deemed “vintage” years (46 of the last 60 years).

• Cuvée de prestige are the best wines a champagne house produces.

• Blanc de Blancs are champagnes made using ONLY white grapes.

• Blanc de Noirs is a champagne made using red grapes.

• Rosé wines are whites and reds blended (using about 15% red) to produce a wine that is pink BEFORE its second fermentation, or by the better ‘saignée’ method, where the red skins are left for a short time in the must, so some colour (and flavour) bleeds out. This style of rosé Champagne tends to produce a richer taste.

The flavours of the wines vary from region to region. Côte des Bar and Montagne de Reims are known for their Pinot Noir, Vallée de la Marne is renowned for its Pinot Meunier, while Côte des Blancs and Côte des Sézanne are famous for their Chardonnays.
