95 Points - James Halliday "...a lovely, lissom Blanc de Blancs"
Wow, what a delicious glass of fizz this is. It's light, bright, fresh and delicate, the bead is so fine. Made from 100% Chardonnay off some of the finest plots in the Les MontFerrés (Vertus Premier Cru), Cotes des Blanc, France.
The real excitement in Champagne is from the small artisan producers in Cotes des Blanc. Charles and Emmanuel Fourny from Vertus are at the forefront of that excitement. They produce fabulous Cuvees of ridiculously good quality. This is beautiful Champagne from salt of the earth, hard working people and as good as it gets for the special moments.

Veuve Fourny is a small family-owned estate business offering great value for money. Three vintages plus older reserve wines spend 2½ years on tirage, with a low disgorgement dosage. A flowery bouquet with citrus zest, hints of spice and toast; a long, intense palate with some nutty/biscuit notes before a vivid, fresh finish. This is a lovely, lissom Blanc de Blancs.
