2002 Fleury "Cuveé Robert Fleury" Brut Champagne

SKU #1110492

Champagne Fleury has been around since 1895, releasing their first bubbly in 1929. The vineyards themselves are located on steep slopes that have a calcareous clay soil and see ample amounts of sun, so the grapes have an outstanding ripeness. Continental and oceanic climates combine for cool mornings and nice bursts of heat in the afternoons. Fleury was one of the first vineyards to start converting to biodynamics, beginning in 1989, completing the process for all of their vineyards by 1992. This is a barrel-fermented blend of one-third each Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Noir. Pinot Blanc is a real rarity in Champagne, and only exists in a few spots in the Aube. Although it sounds as if it would be exotic, this Champagne is one of the most effortless and elegant in our stock. If you enjoyed the 2000, you will find more concentration and length in this great bottle. Unfortunately, only 48 bottles were imported! (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne buyer)

To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Champagne

- The French region of Champagne (comprised of the towns of Rheims, Epernay, and Ay) was the first region in the world to make sparkling wine in any quantity. Today, the name of the region is synonymous with the finest of all sparkling wines, and winemaking traditions of Champagne have become role models for sparkling wine producers, worldwide. Surprisingly, the region of Champagne is now responsible for only one bottle in 12 of all sparkling wine produced. Styles of champagne range from the basic brut (often blends of several vintages), single vintage champagnes, and rose. View our bestselling Champagne.
