Fleury is located in southern Champagne, in the Côtes de Bar. Their 15 hectares are all farmed biodynamically since the early 1990′s, making them one of the largest biodynamic producers. The Carte Rouge Brut is 100% pinot noir. Nutty, toasted but still with plenty of fruit character.
Location: Stockholm, AB
Top organic/biodynamic and natural champagnes
Chilly, humid Champagne should be a challenge for organic growers. Before Anselme Selosse of Champagne Jacques Selosse or Champagne Fleury proved them wrong, it was even said that it couldn’t be done. The climate was too risky, and a grower could lose an entire crop to mildew. However, the region is now an excellent example of organic/biodynamic and ”natural” winemakers producing more interesting wines than the standard. Here is a list of champagnes with personality, class and good price/performance (though not all by any means cheap!). They are not the only ones, however, and I encourage you to ask your retailer for other suggestions in the category!
