Champagne Veuve Fourny Blanc de Blancs (750ml)
Veuve Fourny has been an active family domaine since 1856. The estate is located in the prestigious Côte des Blancs, in the premier cru village of Vertus, an appellation that gives them the rare opportunity to grow Pinot Noir as well as Chardonnay. Veuve Fourny produces classic grower Champagne, raising pedigreed fruit, adhering to high standards, and hand-crafting wines that showcase the chalky terroir of Vertus. All of the Fournys’ vineyards are farmed according to the same meticulous practices and principles, and each parcel is vinified individually. The house style at Veuve Fourny is best characterized as classic Côte des Blancs: a fine bead, rich, deep aromatics, and a complex minerality emphasizing freshness and purity. The Fournys believe in minimal dosage for all of their Champagnes, preferring to let the individual terroirs express themselves more clearly. This technique, in addition to their dedication to partial malolactic fermentations in their overall blends, impeccable vineyard management, and their decision to age most base wine partially in barrel, all contribute to their unique style.
A Champagne that expresses purity, finesse and elegance. It combines creaminess and sharpness with a saline finish.
A blend of different plots of hand harvested Chardonnay grapes from three consecutive harvests and 20% reserve wines. First pressed juice rests 7 months on the lees with minimum use of sulphur; 75% aged in vat and 25% in oak casks. The wine is then bottled and rests in cellar to undergo a secondary fermentation in bottle. This is a brut Champagne with just 5 grams per liter of dosage.
