Courteron - Côte des Bar

What to expect


The blanc de noirs is a swathe of dark fruit, notably black cherry, red fig and blood orange. With some time in the glass it opens up to some roasted almond and spice with the palate showing freshness and lift from the clean acids and vibrant fruit. There is great balance in this wine with a long-lasting finish that goes on and on.

This is 100% pinot noir blended from the 2008 and 2009 vintage. The fruit is sourced from the family Biodynamic vineyards of between 20 and 25 years of age and the grapes go into a traditional Coquard champagne press. Jean-Sebastien also uses aged wines for blending which are all stored in oak casks for complexity.

Food suggestion

The original and some would suggest the best of the Biodynamic Champagnes (certified by Ecocert and accredited to Demeter and Biodyvin), Champagne Fleury is based in the Côte des Bars, which is in the South of Champagne and surpasses in the production of Pinot Noir. “We were the first Champagne producers using biodynamics’, claims Jean-Sébastien Fleury. Champagne Fleury’s conversion to biodynamics was at the hands of Jean-Sébastien’s father, Jean-Pierre. His interest in sustainable wine growing began in the 1970s when he tried using manual tilling (as opposed to herbicides) and composting (as opposed to synthetic fertilizers). He began a trial with biodynamics, applying it to just 3 hectares, in 1989 and then in 1992 used it across the whole of his vineyard holdings. All 15 hectares that Fleury own (90% of which is Pinot Noir) are cultivated using biodynamics, which makes them the largest biodynamic producer in the entire Champagne region. Recently, two colleagues in the same village of Courteron were so impressed by the benefits that they have also switched, bringing the total to some 30 hectares in this village.

We would love to partner an energetic and fruit rich wine like this with duck pancakes, plum sauce and sliced cucumber.
