Fourny & Fills Brut Premier Cru Champagne
With the real name of the Champagne being Veuve Fourny Grand Reserve Brut Vertus Premier Cru, this fabulous Champagne would suit anyone looking for something a bit different.
80% Chardonnay for finesse and elegance, 20% Pinot Noir for body and texture.
Soils are brown topsoil over chalk. 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 fleshy. Slopes face South and South-East giving optimal maturing conditions. Average age of the vines is 40 years.
Excellent combination of fruit and subtle biscuit aromas. A lovely balance of breadiness and freshness.
Hand-picked. 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.
