Description

"This is a hugely appealing sparkling wine. The inviting bouquet shows stone fruit, citrus, almond and floral characters, leading to a refreshing palate that's smooth and rounded. It's well balanced and silky to the finish" Sam Kim Wine Orbit

A fine bead and persistent mousse. Tres French and lively on the nose, bouquets of good dry crunchy fruit with characters of supple spice, apples and subdued cinnamon, peachy elements and sweet smelling clovey punch. Straight onto the palate with crisp apple and nectarine flavours, heightened profiles of rich cashew and toasty, yeasty brioche, simple almond characters with complexities of mint, confectioned citrus and vanilla. This wine is fresh and appealing, florid and tangy at the finish, it lingers with long buttery, lemony elements. Comparable to France's finest, a wine of pleasant surprises, many discriminating palates have embraced Veuve du Vernay as their favourite French sparkling wine

Veuve du Vernay claims an intimate link to the history of French sparkling wine, through the exploits of scientist Jean Eugène Charmat, who's son Robert created the brand in the 1960s. The excellent quality of the base wines and fruit used, in combination with careful monitoring of the secondary fermentations, result in a delightfully fresh and delicate sparkling wine with a charming touch of fruitiness. Although the Brut is typically created from wines of a single vintage, Vernay is not vintage dated, to allow the inclusion of other vintages for balance and consistency. Veuve du Vernay Brut is a pleasantly easy drinking, dry sparkling wine, but it is not austere, rather it suggests the characters of the fine fruit from which it is made.

Have sampled this wine on many occasions and have sampled many bona fide French Champagnes and it is difficult to tell the difference. Recommended.

Ian - 19/07/2018

I love a good sparkling wine, but find some are very unsettling for my stomach. Verve has never done this. Very tasty drop!

Great champagne. Only complaint I have is the courier deliveries, they are getting worse. This is the second shipment that we have had complications with. You need to change the courier company. They do you no justice. It has been such a hassle to sort we won't buy from you anymore. We will continue to go to Fine Wine unless deliveries change.

John - 14/12/2016

Great value wine

Lovely French bubbles, extremely well priced and reliable quality. Perfect for an afternoon drink by itself or with dessert.

Roz - 24/11/2016

A good French bubbles without the price tag of champange but lacks the finesse of champagne

Peter - 21/11/2016

C
This is classy stuff for this price. Great summer drinking. Probably not a celebration type bubbly though - unless of course the celebration is a minor affair!!!!!
