One of the best grower Champagnes on the market today. And because a lot of Champagne is sold on price, we'll begin with the price; it's just $60. While this compares very favorably with the bigger houses, what you get is something worth so much more. Of all the grower Champanges we sell, this is without doubt the most popular and for one reason, it's just so darn nice. Like most non-vintage Champagnes, this embodies the house style at Veuve Fourny impeccably well with elegant aromatics, a highly refined texture and a combination of orchard fruit and minerals that embraces Champagne’s more elegant side. The Aussie reviewers are getting their hands dirty with this wine as we speak, but alreadyHuon Hooke and Tim White have sung praises for this stylish Champagne.
Plenty of forest berry pips and granny smith apple fruit in this: deep and complex-smelling but also full of sea-spray vitality. Lipsmacking, complex and pippy fruited in the mouth, with corella pear crispness and a long dry finish. Mouth-sucking and moreish to close. 9/10 - how much I like it. 94 Points;Tim White, The Australian Financial Review, Oct 2011
This welcome new arrival is imported by De Bortoli. The style is chardonnay driven but very complex, with some aldehydes in a nutty, appley bouquet of great depth and complexity. It's nervy, taut and refined in the mouth with lip smacking tang. 95 Points;Huon Hooke, Sydney Morning Herald, Nov 2011
