Tasting Notes

Elegant and graceful aromatics with lemon oil, dried pineapple, light florality, and a touch of biscuit.  The palate is medium-plus in weight, fleshy, and delightfully fruity. Flavors include citrus, apple, and green pear that are balanced by great purity and softness.

 

This grower Champagne has been an active family-run domaine since 1856, and since 1993, brothers Charles-Henry and Emmanual have managed the estate.  Veuve Fourny & Fils manages 9 hectares of sustainably-farmed vines planted on chalky soils with clay and limestone deposits.

 

This 100% Chardonnay Blanc de Blancs comes from hand-harvested, estate-grown, 40-year-old vines.  Primary fermentation takes place in stainless steel, while 70% is then aged in stainless steel and the reminder in French Burgundian barrels.
