Champagne Fleury Blanc de Noirs Brut
Previously known as “Carte Rouge Brut Tradition,” the name and label changed in 2010 to “Blanc de Noirs”. This is Fleury’s “house cuvee” and most of the Domaine’s production.
Pinot Noir 100 % from all parcels. Age of the vines : 20 – 25 years. The amount of new vintage wines and reserve wines varies from year to year. Reserve wines usually consist approx. 30-40% of the final blend. For this cuvee, the base wine is from 2016 vintage which saw spring frosts followed by mildew and gave low yields. As a result, the blend here is 25% of 2016 vintage and 75% of reserve wines. The dosage varies from year to year and was 3.5g in this cuvee. The higher than usual portion of reserve wines gives this cuvee more balanced body that doesn’t require more dosage, according to Jean-Sebastien. Winemaking in thermo-regulated tanks and wooden foudres for reserve wines.
Ageing 3 to 5 years before bottling, Malolactic fermentation, Alcohol content : 11.90 ABV, Vegan
