Fleury Fleur de l'Europe Brut Organic Champagne Reviews

Fleury Fleur de l'Europe

Very pleasant biodynamic champagne


Pros: Biodynamic, clean taste, very pleasant

Cons: A little pricey

Fleury Fleur de l'Europe is definitely one of the only organic (and in particular biodynamic) champagnes.  Needless to say, you can only really compare it to non-organics.  It's not especially dry, but it's also not too sweet (a big step up from Andre).  It's got a bit of a citrus/fruity taste which is pleasant and not too overpowering.  It could have a little bit more bubble.  It's got a nice aroma, good color, and clean finish.  It's not quite Veuve Clicquot, but I enjoyed it and I'd certainly get it for a special occassion.
