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. A beguiling cuvée, with its complex aromas, deliciously round with lovely honey notes, minerality and exceptionally long on the palate. This champagne made only with grapes from their own Clos, is really appreciated by amateurs and collectors. Ageing: In bottles, for a minimum of nine years on lees in their 19th century cellars with a low and constant temperature. 100% Chardonnay.
