As the name suggests, the Veuve Fourny Blanc de Blancs Brut Vertus Premier Cru is 100% Chardonnay and a pure expression of this variety from Vertus. Slightly broader than the Grande Reserve, it shows some honeyed characters and fruit purity, finesse and elegance. Which do I prefer? I’m not sure perhaps after working through a six-pack of each I could make a clearer call, with a gun to the head I would take the aperitif perfect Grande Réserve, though seasoned Champagne connoisseurs may go the Blanc de Blanc. Passionate about their land which has been cultivated by their ancestors since 1856, the Fourny family produce Champagnes from grapes grown in the premier crus of Vertus, a village located in the south of the prestigious Cote des Blancs.
