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.

4.5/5 - Tony Love
One of the best value Champagne houses available in Australia. This multi-vintage premier cru cuvee is an 80:20 mix of chardonnay and pinot noir with 40 per cent reserve wines from older vintages included for complexity. The key to this delicious drink is the freshness at first, then deeper biscuit/bread brioche like richness, followed finally by a mouth-pleasing minerality.
