Loved this as it is so easy to enjoy as an aperitif or with a well suited meal. Biscuit, bread and leesy notes dominate with fruit taking a mild be seat.

Exceptional Fizz! Veuve Fornay Cuvée R does it in style! Stunning grower Champagne. Every so often you come across a Champagne that has such great fruit quality that you wonder if it would be just as good or better without the bubbles in it. This baby doesn't hide behind sugar or winemaking trickery. With only 3g/l sugar it's super dry! 90% Chardonnay with a splash of Pinot from some great vineyards. It's barrel fermented and aged for about 9 months prior to spending 4 years on lees in bottle. The efforts of working with barrels and taking time to age base wines in them have paid off. It's a full on style, a real food wine, so much personality. Incredibly length and depth! Great flavours and plenty of intrigue. At $67 a bottle it punches well above it's weight.
This one makes it 3 great wines from 3 for Veuve Fornay all different all with personality!

Like this one a lot. Slight hints of lemon and bread yeast. Very tasty. Doesn't have a biting taste. Almost a nutty port like bit of a nose
