NV Veuve Fourny, Champagne Brut, Rose (RT93+) From Lot 47401, disgorged 10/19.Like all other wines from this champagne house, this is closed under the Mytik Diamant corks, which is my view is one of the finest ways a producer can demonstrate their commitment to protecting their hard work. Crafted from 40 year old vines mostly grown in the Premier Cru Vertus vineyard, and manually foot crushed with a long maceration. The dosage is 6g/liter for this blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir (both PN Blanc and PN Red), aged mainly in casks on lees for 7 months. The result is an exceptional value in Rose Brut where you’ll find the fruit wonderfully knitted together with masterful skill as the dark cranberry hue belies its elegance. Notes of orange, strawberry, brioche and smoky chalk dust emerge from the glass, this is highly attractive. The palate is refined, smooth and packed with layers of delicious fruit. This fits perfectly into the house style, which is built on succulent, lavishly dosed fruit. This is a terrific value in Champagne Rose, if you can find it it’s worth checking out!
