About Champagne Fleury Brut Rosé de Saignée

Champagne Fleury Brut Rosé de Saignée is composed of 100% Pinot Noir and is made by maceration, with all of the skins in contact with all of the juice. Most rosés made in this style are very big, but this one is the exception; it is very elegant. In the glass, it has a wonderful, fresh Pinot Noir nose of strawberry fruit and forest air intrigue. On the palate, it has a great small bubble texture with magnificent depth and terroir.

About Champagne Fleury

This family domain from Aube is a pioneer in biodynamic viticulture, and following years of rigorous work, their champagnes now benefit from a high quality, based on accuracy, righteousness, and amazing digestibility. Its level of savory intensity is simply exceptional in Champagne, and its cuvée is dominated by a vinous expression, from the generous Pinot Noir. The House’s champagnes reach a very high level of quality, widely acclaimed in specialized books and magazines.

Types of Champagne

Champagne’s flavor, aroma, and experience on the palate is affected by the three grapes used in making it: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier. Chardonnay is generally the main grape used in blending Champagne (and nearly all Champagne is a blend), but some versions use only the black grapes.

Blanc de Blancs
A lovely french term meaning “white of whites.” In Champagne, this means the wine is 100% Chardonnay. Blanc de Blancs typically have more lemon and apple-like fruit flavors.

Blanc de Noirs
If you’re keeping track, you know this means “white of blacks,” which indicates a wine made entirely from the black grapes: Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. Blanc de Noirs typically have more strawberry and white raspberry flavors. The minimal contact with the grape skins can make these wines slightly darker or more yellow.

Prestige Cuvée
The good stuff! These wines are single-producer blends that are considered the top of the range for a Champagne house. Commonly aged longer, resulting in creamy and yeasty qualities (but not always, talk with your friendly wine experts!) These will also make your wallet cry.

Rosé Champagne
The pink style is usually made by blending blanc Champagne with a teensy bit of red Pinot Noir or Pinot Meunier wine. The red wine made for Champagne is very different from Pinot Noir you might think of. Its purpose is to provide pure fruit flavors such as strawberry and raspberry in the taste.
