NV Champagne Baron Fuente Brut Tradition

Felix Gentle

"A lovely Champagne with aromas of apple blossom, brioche, citrus and minerality. The palate is savoury and complex with a touch of salinity on the finish. Great value."

Antoine Huray

"Smoky, buttery, yeasty characters on the nose. The palate is intense yet elegant with a lively mouthfeel, and wonderful finish. Quality."

Want a real Champagne, that's not your usual big house, mass market fizz, at a fair price? This Baron Fuente is what you've been looking for. The key to this fizz's appeal is the soft palate. With more Meunier in the mix, it's a gentle and rounded Champagne that we absolutely love.

Expert Reviews

94 Points - Sam Kim - Wine OrbitWonderfully 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.

How's it taste?

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.

How was it made?

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

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!
