2005 Fleury "Cuveé Robert Fleury" Extra Brut Champagne

SKU #1266352 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The barrel-fermented 2005 Robert Fleury Millésime Extra Brut is a blend of 30% Chardonnay, 25% Pinot Blanc, 25% Pinot Noir and 20% Meunier that was aged under natural cork until the disgorgement in October 2015. Very rich and intense on the nose where ripe fruits with honey and wax flavors are displayed, this is a full-bodied, pure and elegant, finesse-full and tension-filled Champagne. It has a very salty and persistently mineral finish. (SR)  (6/2016)

K&L Notes

Barrel-fermented Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Blanc, which is a real rarity in Champagne--it only exists in a few spots in the Aube and it adds a ton of body to this very rich wine. Fleury was one of the first to farm biodynamically in Champagne.

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. 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.
