Veuve Fourny produces fabulous Cuvees of ridiculously good quality. The Vertus Blanc de Blancs is a blend of Chardonnay grapes, coming from several plots on the Les Mont-Ferrés (Vertus ler Cru), where the soil is chalky. The 40 year old vineyards slope South and South-East giving optimal ripening conditions. This is a hand-picked, pure expression of Chardonnay. 20% reserve wines from old vintages are blended to give complexity as well as consistency of style. All liveliness, purity, finesse and elegance at a bargain price for this quality. A beautiful wine.
