Champagne Extra Brut, 'Bolero,' Fleury 2008

Availability: In stock

100% Pinot Noir.

The Fleury estate was founded 1895 in Courteron in the heart of southern Champagne in the Côte des Bar and has been influenced by each generation of the Fleury family. The domain lies nestled among the clay-limestone hillsides formed in the Kimmeridgian period by the first tributaries of the Seine. The source of the River Seine begins 70 km upstream, towards Saint-Seine-l'Abbaye. The Fleury estate vineyards stretch 15 hectares on both slopes of the Seine valley.

Winemaking Team Notes: "Previously named 'Millésimé' this cuvée was blended with Chardonnay. In 2004 it was renamed 'Bolero' and became a pure Pinot Noir. Through the inspiration of Benoit, this high quality vintaged Champagne exudes the personality of the region. Winemaking in thermoregulated tanks (70 %) and oak barrels (30 %). Malolactic fermentation. 0 g/L dosage.

Tasting Notes: The vintage expresses an array of complex aromas, dried fruits, toasted almonds, apricots, followed by herbaceous and mineral notes. On the palate we find flavors of freshly baked-bread, and juicy grapes, with a crystalline effervescence."
