Veuve Fourny Blanc de Blanc 1er Cru Millesime 2006

$105.00

"...From old vineyards in the heart of Vertus, this premier cru is built around a purity and depth of fruit and grand cru proportions. White peach, yellow plums, grapefruit and mixed spice, it's all here in its enticingly pure glory and its profound mineral texture, hauntingly reminiscent of the grand cru of Le Mesnil-sur-Oger (next door). Its all-pervading minerality propels its fruit upward and drives its finish very long indeed. Quite a contrast to the weaker 2005 vintage, the oak sits decisively in the background here. An impressive 2006, and sensational value for money." 95pts Tyson Stelzer
