Tasting Notes

Veuve Fourny & Fils produces classic grower champagne that showcases the chalky terroir of the village of Vertus. All of Fourny's parcels are vinified individually. The Brut ages in their cellars for two and a half years before release. An elegant, fine champagne.

Staff Pick Notes

A great Champagne made from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The result is a crisp wine with aromas of peach and delicious notes of grapefruit and lemon on the palate support by mild brioche. This Champagne has a great intensity and a long finish. The vineyards are located in a very respected area, which has helped the Fourny family attain an excellent reputation. Production started in the 1930s and the winery is run by the fifth generation of the family today. I personally like sparkling wines with pronounced fruity notes and this wine is a great example!

During a huge popularity surge beginning in the late 1980s, Chardonnay plantings have increased dramatically -- not only in California's wine country, with which the variety is nearly synonymous, but also in Burgundy (its original, Old World home) and just about everywhere else in the winemaking...
