NV Fleury Carte Rouge Blanc

The vineyards of the house of Fleury are located near the village of Courteron in the valley of the Seine. After phylloxera invaded Champagne in 1901, Emily Fleury , a botanist and viticulturist, became the first to plant grafted Pinot Noir vines in the area. In 1989, Jean- Pierre Fleury became the first Champagne producer to use biodynamic practices. 100% Pinot Noir, Côte des Bar. A blend of the 2003 and 2004 vintages. · Gold in color. Floral notes in the aromatics. Creamy and roundness with plenty of power. Red berry tones among the flavors. The finish has lively acidity and is quite “tranquil.” My favorite Champagne in the lineup. Reviewed August 6, 2007
