– Champagne, France
Jean-Pierre Fleury was the first farmer in the Champagne to go -as early as 1989- fully biodynamic. His son Jean-Sébastien continues this today. The house makes very energetic champagnes, mostly in very dry styles, from sizzlingly fruity to rich and complex. All in all, a dream of a champagne house: impeccable quality for the lover of Great Champagne.
@champagne.fleury operates on a 15-hectare vineyard primarily growing 85% Pinot Noir and 10% Chardonnay, with smaller quantities of Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, and Pinot Meunier.
Their “Time Vault” serves as a wine library, showcasing reserve wine barrels. It features unique architecture and symbolism, including the Fibonacci sequence, the zodiac, and precious stones, resonating with life’s forces and harmony in the cellar.
Sounds esoteric? Maybe. One thing is certain: these wines rank amongst the best champagnes in the world. So come and taste. And for those who want to dive deeper, there is going to be also a workshop by Jean-Sébastien at 11.15 on Saturday the 18th > to get access, book a ticket for the first time slot of NWFA.
