Expert Reviews

Veuve Fourny is a small, family-owned estate business in France offering great value for money. The chardonnay grapes are 25% fermented in barrel, 75% in tank. Three vintages plus older reserve wines spend 2½ years on tirage. A flowery bouquet with citrus zest, spice and toast; a long, intense palate with biscuit notes, then a fresh finish.

Rating 95 - James Halliday, Weekend Australia - NOV 2014

Winery Tasting Notes

Pure expression of Chardonnay from Vertus. Blend of selected plots from harvests. 40% of Reserve wines from old vintages to give complexity as well as consistency of style.

This wine is all liveliness, purity, finesse and elegance.
