Change things up with a rosé Champagne made with Pinot Noir grapes that’s truly expressive and packing latent power. Intensely aromatic, this sparkler boasts lush strawberry fruit, Bing cherry, and mixed florals. It's supported by an unparalleled structure of fine bubbles and pleasing acidity. Refined, elegant... yes, hunny.
Champagne Fleury has been run by the Fleury family for over a century, with each generation contributing to a reputation for innovation. In 1901, Emile Fleury became the first grower in Champagne to replant Pinot Noir after phylloxera ravaged vineyards on the continent. His son, Robert Fleury, then made the unusual decision to bottle his own champagne in 1929. And in 1989, the estate — driven by a concern for the effects of chemical agriculture — implemented biodynamics in the vineyards. Today, winemaking is led by Jean-Pierre Fleury, who has gained international recognition for his work.
