Cuvée ‘R’ de Veuve Fourny Extra Brut

$85.00

Soils
Chalk.

Vineyard
The area of ‘Les Barilliers’ and ‘Les Justices’ give high quality grapes which are the main terroirs of Cuvée ‘R’. Slopes face South and South-East giving optimal maturing conditions.

Vine Age
Average vine age 45 years.

Varieties
Predominantly Chardonnay with a little  Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier for complexity.

Harvesting
Hand-picked.

Vinification
The immaculate fruit is gently pressed and fermented in small oak casks. As the juices are transformed into wines, they rest quietly in the underground chalk cellars until the following spring. The wines undergo ‘battonage’ or lees stirring to encourage the lees to release some of their lovely aromatics.

Ageing
On tirage for 4 years.

Dosage

3 grams / litre (to taste)

Tasting

Opulence, complexity, creaminess, textural. Terrific with food.
