Description

The crystal golden robe reveals fine and creamy bubbles, with beautiful aromas of raisins and mirabelle. The palate exudes flavors of white flowers, peach and almonds, with a complex evolution, accented with notes of brioche and dried fruits.

Tasting note

Despite being a less represented grape variety in the southern part of the Champagne region, this cuvée takes its charm from the nearby Chablisienne terroir. Anchored just off the slopes of Champraux and the old vines of Valprune, this wine exudes opulence, richness and vivacity.

Food pairing

Glazed chicken with a girolle mushroom risotto Roasted quail with a cream of nutmeg squash Raisin Kougelhopf brioche

About the producer

The Fleury estate was founded 1895 in Courteron in the heart of southern Champagne in the Côte des Bar. The domaine is situated among the clay-limestone
hillsides formed in the Kimmeridgian period by the first tributaries of the Seine. The Source of the River Seine begins 70 km upstream, towards Saint-Seine-l’Abbaye.
The family’s passion for viticulture has been fuelled by Biodynamic principles, sitting on 15 hectares of land, which is comprised of 85% Pinot Noir and 10%
Chardonnay; the remainder is split between Pinot Blanc (a historical variety in Champagne), Pinot Gris (replanted in 2010) and Pinot Meunier. The oldest vines were
planted in 1970, and every year new ones are replanted to preserve the quality and vitality of our vineyard.
