Veuve Fourny Grande Réserve Brut Vertus Premier Cru

$65.00

Soils
Chalk.

Vineyard
The fruit comes from several plots near the village of Vertus. Chardonnay plots are quite fine and minerally, whilst the Pinot Noir component fuller, richer and more flesh. Slopes face South and South-East giving optimal maturing conditions.

Vine Age
Average age of the vines is 39 years.

Varieties
80% Chardonnay for finesse and elegance, 20% Pinot Noir for body and texture.

Harvesting
Hand-picked.

Blending
Fine but complex and funky aromas typical of Vertus. Quite chalky and creamy with some biscuit like characters from the Pinot Noir. 40% Reserve wines from previous vintages added. Traditional ‘house’ style.

Ageing
On tirage for 2 ½ years.

Dosage

6 grams / litre.

Tasting

Excellent combination of fruit and subtle biscuit aromas, a lovely balance of breadiness and freshness.
