2012 Veuve Fourny et Fils Clos Faubourg Notre Dame Extra Brut
A captivating wine with complex aromas, a delicious roundness, wonderful ripe citrus notes, minerality and above all an exceptional length on the palate. A Champagne made from Chardonnay harvested by hand and sourced exclusively from the property’s enclosed vineyard.
Emmanuel and Charles-Henry Fourny are making some of the most exciting wines in Champagne and are emerging as stars of their generation. They now own and lease (from other family members) some 20 hectares of 1er Cru vineyards in the Côte de Blancs and all exclusively from the limestone and pure chalk soils of Vertus. The hallmark of their wines is freshness, elegance and purity.
