MV 2000 Veuve Fourny & Fils 'Vinotheque' Extra Brut Rose Champagne 1.5L
Winemaker Notes: It is the representation of the best Pinot Noir and Chardonnay terroirs, classified as a Premier Cru in the village of Vertus, in the Côte des Blancs. A unique experience, the fruit of more than 20 years of aging on lees in magnums in our cellars. A wine collection from the Vinothèque family, mostly from the 2000 vintage and enhanced by Reserve wines (MV: “multi vintages”) kept in small wooden containers. This fabulous Cuvée Rosé gives the taster unique sensations. Standing out with the astonishing subtle citrus freshness, a structure that moves towards inimitable saline notes mixed with delicate red fruits.
Champagne Veuve Fourny & Fils has been an active family domaine since 1856. The estate is located in the prestigious Côte des Blancs, in the premier cru village of Vertus, an appellation that gives them the rare opportunity to grow Pinot Noir as well as Chardonnay. Brothers Charles-Henry and Emmanuel Fourny sustainably farm nearly nine hectares of vineyards and have been carrying on the family winegrowing tradition since 1993. Their “Clos Faubourg Notre Dame” is a rare jewel in Champagne, primarily due to the fact that there are few existing clos parcels left in the region. In this walled plot of land, their older vines benefit from a unique microclimate with deep, chalky subsoil and clay and limestone deposits. Southeastern sun exposure optimizes grape maturity in an area of France where ripe grapes are a precious commodity. Their other vineyards share the soil composition of the clos and get east, southeast and southern sun exposure.
