About the Producer:
Veuve Fourny produces classic grower Champagne, raising pedigreed fruit, adhering to high standards, and hand-crafting wines that showcase the chalky terroir of Vertus. All of the Fournys’ vineyards are farmed according to the same meticulous practices and principles, and each parcel is vinified individually. The Brut ages in their cellars for three years before release, the vintage Champagne for five years, and the Clos for nine years. The house style at Veuve Fourny is best characterized as classic Côte des Blancs: a fine bead, rich, deep aromatics, and a complex minerality emphasizing freshness and purity. The Fournys believe in minimal dosage for all of their Champagnes, preferring to let the individual terroirs express themselves more clearly. This technique, in addition to their dedication to partial malolactic fermentations in their overall blends, impeccable vineyard management, and their decision to age most base wine partially in barrel, all contribute to their unique style.

About the Wine:
Unique know-how of the Veuve Fourny House: a blend of hand-picked Pinot Noir and Chardonnay Premier Cru from Vertus. Kept in small oak casks, the reserve wines enhance the complexity of this exceptional cuvée. A fresh and fruity Champagne, a perfect balance of liveliness and freshness. A great tasting moment

• ¼ of cuvée goes through malolactic fermentation
• Ages in bottle for 2 ½ years before release
• Dosage between 5-6 grams/liter (extra brut)

Ratings / Reviews:

93 Points - Vinous Media:
"The NV Brut Grande Réserve wraps around the palate with striking depth and pure, crystalline purity. A host of lemon and citrus notes meld into smoke, graphite and honey. Rich and dense to the core, the Grand Réserve impresses for its vinosity and depth. This is a serious Champagne endowed with plenty of grip and tension. There is much to admire here. Disgorged June 2013." - Antonio Galloni (November 2014)

90 Points - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar:
"(80% chardonnay and 20% pinot noir; L10030): Pale gold. Citrus fruits and green apple on the high-pitched, mineral-tinged nose. Spicy, penetrating and refreshingly brisk, offering Meyer lemon and bitter pear skin flavors that put on weight with aeration. Closes firm and long, with lingering spiciness and a touch of anise." - Josh Raynolds (Dec 13)

90 Points - Wine Spectator:
"A firm Champagne, with a fine, lively bead, this offers ripe and tangy fruit flavors of apricot and juicy blackberry, aromatic apple blossom and smoke notes, and accents of honey and brioche. Disgorged June 2013. Drink now through 2019. 250 cases imported." – AN (Web Only - 2014)
