A family domaine since 1856, Veuve Fourny has been run by brothers Charles-Henry and Emmanuel Fourny since 1993, the fifth generation of the family to take charge. They farm 9 hectares of land in the premier cru of Vertus, including the walled monopole vineyard of Clos Faubourg Notre Dame with its unique microclimate and deep, chalky subsoils. Indeed, their vineyards in general are characterised by chalk, even areas that are pure chalk below a thin layer of topsoil, and all are blessed with east, south or a south-easterly aspects. Their chardonnay and pinot noir vines average 40 years of age, and they are nurtured with great care, farmed without any chemicals or artificial fertilisers. The aim is to express finesse and purity, blending their parcels to create harmony and never losing sight of the expression of terroir. Cracka rating "Here's a Champagne with 'feel good' factor. Produced from organically-grown vines, it shows appealing lemon, buttered croissants and nuttiness on the nose, whilst the palate is quite peachy and punchy, with fine bubbles, tight, flinty acidity, and bright, lemony finish."
