The date of the harvest is a crucial decision. Moreover, we were the last to complete it in Vertus in this particularly early year.
In fact we started the picking 6 days after the official harvesting date in order to obtain the ideal phenolic ripeness. We have always paid great attention to the ripeness of the flesh and the skin of each grape. At Veuve Fourny it is essential to have fruit which has taste and a ripe texture. In order to reach the optimum date we have to be patient.
We are producing wines with a freshness that are more saline than acidic and which are more long-lasting. A good omen for wine lovers.
