What

The biodynamics pioneer in Champagne first converted in 1989. Originally an RM (since 1929), they are now a small house, with biodynamic practices still universally applied.


Where

Courteron, Côte des Bar; 15ha of estate vineyards, with an emphasis on pinot noir.


Why

Even if the biodynamic angle doesn’t move you, the ripe, vinous, soulful style of Fleury amply reflects the meticulous care in viticulture and winemaking. Also, if most pink champagne leaves you unsatisfied, be reassured that this is a gutsy, flavourful rosé obtained by 24 hours maceration before pressing.


What else

Look out for their idiosyncratic Notes Blanches, a single-vineyard pinot blanc that has an appealingly sensuous, waxy texture.

Tasting Notes

Fragrant strawberries drive the nose almost into indulgence before pulling back into Herbs de Provence, rose petals and powdery peonies. On the palate, bracing acidity and a tactile, chalky grain tighten everything up another notch.

Try It With 

Roasted meats: pork, duck or goose.

When To Drink

Main course

Perfect For

A wine lovers' gathering.

TL/DR

Juicy, chalky, lively rosé.
