Our wealth : a mosaic of terroir ...
In order to enlarge our Domain in Vertus, already quite diversified, we purchased a new plot in 2009. The former owners, a family of winemakers, were looking for a buyer with a good reputation, and especially one practising a vinification by plot in order to express the full potential of this great terroir.
Naturally, they selected the Maison Veuve Fourny & Fils. Since then, we have had the privilege of looking after “Les Barilliers”, in the heart of the historical Vertus terroir. Planted with old Pinot Noir vines, the clayish rendzine soil over a chalky subsoil strengthens the fruitiness, freshness and lovely finesse of our Rosé cuvée. A rarity which we are proud to share with you. With time, our mosaic of terroirs enlarges to provide more champagnes with a strong identity.
