  • THE BRIEF
  • Baron-Fuenté is a négociant that owns almost 90 acres of vines and purchases another 90 acres "sur pied," meaning that they pick the grapes. This is an important distinction since many négociants buy "sur lattes," meaning in bottle!

    This delicious Champagne is composed of 10% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay and 60% Meunier and had been aged three years on the lees. It is fermented at relatively cold temperatures in stainless steel with 100% malolactic fermentation.

    The wine has a very light, white-gold color for the blend, which is predominantly black grapes and a very pretty, tight bead. On the nose it is flowery and exotic, with a doughy richness to anchor down the wildflower elements. On the palate the wine is well balanced, light and finishes very cleanly. This Champagne is a spectacular aperitif. The current batch is 40% reserve wines and dosed at 9 grams per liter.

  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • 70% Pinot Meunier, 30% Chardonnay, this blend is the perfect illustration of the Meunier from the Marne Valley.

    WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?


    Light yellow in colour with very fine mousse. The bouquet is discreet and elegant with note of brioche and candied or stewed fruits, with a light honey aroma. The mouth is supple and well balanced. Unctuous with a good length in the mouth.

  • WHO MADE IT?
  • Since the 17th century, the Baron family owned a vineyard in Charly-sur-Marne, in the west of the Champagne area. In 1961, Gabriel Baron was gifted 1ha of vineyards by his father, on the occasion of his marriage to Dolores Fuente. As a symbol of this union, Gabriel and Dolores founded Baron-Fuente. The first bottles were produced and sold directly from their house. By 1992, they had grown their vineyard holdings to 13 ha, and added a daughter and a son to their family - Sophie and Ignace. Today, Baron-Fuente owns 38 ha of vineyards, and the house is managed by Ignace and Sophie. All of their bottles are stored on slats for a period of between 3 and 7 years before they are disgorged, bringing the deep and varied aromas to each of the cuvees. They disgorge each bottle every three months, which ensures fine mousse and light bubbles. For over 50 years these different phases of production have allowed people in France and in 30 countries around the world, to enjoy Baron-Fuente Champagnes!

    SAM KIM - WINE ORBIT


    Wonderfully complex and engaging, the bouquet shows ripe apple, nectarine, brioche and yeasty characters, leading to a concentrated palate that is supple and beautifully flowing. It is generous and flavoursome, while remaining elegant and vibrant, backed by bright acidity, finishing impressively long and expansive.
