Fleury

Le Champagne Fleury is an artisanal Champagne house, a pioneer in the Domaine of biodynamic viticulture and the production of organic Champagnes. Founded in 1895 by Emile Fleury, this family-run house is located in the village of Courteron, in the heart of the Côte des Bar, in the Champagne region.

The Fleury family history goes back more than five generations, when Emile Fleury decided to embark on viticulture and the production of Champagne. Over the years, the Fleury family has passed on its winemaking know-how and heritage from generation to generation, preserving an attachment to traditional values while adopting innovative practices. 

The terroir of the Côte des Bar is an essential characteristic for the quality of Fleury Champagnes. The vineyards cover almost 15 hectares, mainly located in villages classified as Premier Cru appellation, such as Courteron and Riceys. The Côte des Bar terroir is distinguished by its clay-limestone soils, which give the grapes remarkable ripeness and characteristic freshness. 

The Fleury family is particularly committed to biodynamic viticulture, an environmentally-friendly farming method that considers the vine as a living organism interacting with its environment. This approach aims to enhance the health of the soil and vines by promoting biodiversity and avoiding the use of synthetic chemicals. The vines are cultivated in harmony with nature, helping to produce grapes of the highest quality, authentic and... See more ...

Description Fleury Sonate 2012.

A nod to the complex and harmonic expression of the notes that make up this masterpiece...

It is a blended champagne produced exclusively on the Fleury vineyard with 60% Pinot Noir grapes and 40% Chardonnay. The grapes were selected and picked manually from 35-year-old vines.

Partially matured in French oak barrels, the wine will then age for several years in the bottle in the cellars of the House.

The color is shiny gold.

Perfume and flavor: very beautiful harmonic palette with a great aromatic presence on flavors of brioche, lightly toasted bread, candied fruit with notes of stewed quince and Belchard apple.

Perfect as an aperitif but also throughout a meal to enhance turbots, John Dory, Basque-style grilled chiperons, or white meats or even desserts such as peach Melba, Belle-Hélène pear or chocolate fondant
