The Veuve Fourny & Fils was one of four wines to top the tasting with 96 points.
Veuve Fourny & Fils Vertus 1er Cru Brut Rosé has a pale salmon pink colour. It combines chardonnay and pinot noir from three consecutive vintages, a portion of the latter as red wine. The great feature of the wine for me was how it combined delicate yet intense flavours, subtle complexity and great depth. Yallop loved its “intense redcurrant and Turkish delight fragrance. Quite dry, with beautiful flavour – strawberry, liquorice and red vermouth.” The balance and line through the mouth are superb.
