- Biodynamic Practice
Region: Vertus, Champagne
Grape Varieties: 100% Chardonnay
Grapes from over 50 years old vines located on mid slopes, growing on pure chalk soils perfect for a long maturation. 7 months on lees during vilification and at least 6 years with lees in cellars. The style is very neat, mineral and saline.
Pure grapefruit, white peach and lemon, with oak integration. Aromas of ginger nut biscuits and mixed spices, propelling fruit upwards and driving all pervading mineral texture long into the finish, flickering with intriguing notes of liquorice, which the Fourny say are characteristics of the chalk minerality of Vertus as it ages.
Food Pairing: Appetizer, Cheese, Cold cut, Fruits, Seafood
