Fleury Blanc de Noirs Brut Champagne (375ml)

SKU #1020442 95 points Decanter

 The original 'green' Champagne producer, organic since 1970 and biodynamic since 1989. I picked the Brut Sonate 2011 to include in my book, which is a little more expensive, but this blanc de noirs is also brilliant, rich and creamy but dancing with a salty minerality. Drinking Window 2017 - 2024. (JA)  (12/2017)

91 points James Suckling

 Very attractive spicy and floral aromas make this an alluring proposition. But don't be fooled – the palate has yellow and pink grapefruit amid a savory, deep and embracingly powerful finish. Drink now.  (10/2017)

91 points Vinous

 (100% Pinot Noir; 9 g/l dosage; disgorged on November 7, 2013): Bright yellow. Mineral-accented redcurrant and blood orange scents are complicated by smoky minerals and dried rose. Chewy and tightly focused, offering bitter citrus pith and red berry flavors and a touch of toasted brioche. Shows very good clarity and lift on the taut, energetic finish, leaving smoky mineral and floral notes behind. (JR)  (1/2015)

91 points Wine Spectator

 This balanced version is lightly mouthwatering and open-knit, an accessible Champagne with a fine range of crushed black raspberry, blood orange granita, toast and spice flavors. Drink now through 2021. (AN, Web Only-2017)

Jancis Robinson

 Exclusive from Champagne Fleury based on the original label design for the 1929 vintage. Fleury was the first producer in Champagne to become biodynamic (certified in 1992). Based on the 2013 vintage. Intense and proper with almost painful acidity. Honey and wild flowers. Massively interesting even if not tight-knit. 16.5/20  (10/2018)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The NV Blanc de Noirs Brut is based on the 2010 harvest and includes 25% of reserve wines. It was disgorged in October 2015 with seven grams of dosage. The wine opens very pure and fresh on the nose, with ripe pear aromas and a lovey purity of fruit. Intense and fruity on the palate, light and finesse-full, this wine has a very nice grip. It is very delicate and pure, with great finesse, lightness and grip. This Champagne is promising. (SR)  (6/2016)

K&L Notes

This is a real deal Champagne from Courteron, a village in the Aube department of Champagne, closer to Chablis than the city of Reims! Their methods are as Burgundian as is their location. And they practice biodynamic farming methods. The assemblage of several Pinot Noir vines from different years results in a very expressive and intense Champagne. Fruity and delicate, this very elegant and long-lasting Champagne is classic, smooth and quite rich in style. Mr. Fleury's obsession with quality shows through in the wine; it is the most exciting all-Pinot Noir Blanc de Noir in our stock. The dosage is very low--one of the driest Champagnes we have--with a wonderful black cherry fruit quality that reminds us that it is all Pinot! It is long and refreshing and very well balanced. (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne Buyer)
