It’s always great to catch up with a producer that launches their tête de cuvée from the vintage 2008 – now it is time for ’Cuvée du Clos Notre Dame’ from Veuve Fourny in Vertus.

VINTAGE 2008

★★★★★

The weather gods were in their best mood this year, and the vines remained unusually fresh from the attack and gave a very good harvest- ing. An absolutely gorgeous vintage that has it all! Best vintage since 1996, and unlike the tart 1990s, there are wonderful wines directly with their delicious fruit intensity and match- less balance. All the ones I tasted from the vats are magical, and I have a hard time imagining nothing other than buying everything you see of this vintage. So far the leaders are Diebolt- Vallois fleur de Passion ahead of Vouette & Sorbée and Michel Turgy, but many giants will surely win over them.
