Steven Spurrier, writing in Decanter Magazine, picked this out as one of his top wines to try, saying: “From the village of Vertus, this spends three years on its lees with 20% reserve wine, and is all white flowers and natural ripeness. The low 6 g/l dosage brings a fine dry finish.” We think there’s a wonderful vibrancy and a daring nakedness to the fruit that awakens your tastebuds in the most appetising way, making it the perfect aperitif Champagne. Not a rich style, but very perky and refreshing without being shrill thanks to the ripe and beautifully balanced fruit. 12%. Drink 2015-2017. 

Decanter Magazine: “This cuvee is a great introduction to this small family house that specialises in Chardonnay. This wine offers richness but also subtle, white floral notes. It spent three years on its lees and was bottled with very low dosage. Very vinous with a nice mouthfeel. Great Price!” 17.75/20

Decanter (Xavier Rousset MS): "Veuve Fourny's Champagne often come out with high marks when I taste them blind. Under the radar for most of us, but worth highlighting and of course tasting." 17.5/20 points

Tyson Stelzer, The Champagne Guide 2014-2015: “Fourny’s mandate of purity and precision shimmers in lemon zest, grapefruit pith, fresh pear, crunchy white peach and granny smith apple of soap-powder brightness. Pristine fruit expression, wonderful concentration and refinement are upheld at every moment, propelled by the texture and depth of barrel-aged reserves, adding hints of roast nuts and a suggestion of anise. A long, soft, salty mineral finish speaks clearly of the terroir of Vertus.” 94/100 points
