The Côteaux Champenois En Vieux Fombrés by Doyard is a white wine made from 100% Chardonnay grapes harvested in 2017 from the lieu-dit "Vieux Fombrés" planted in 1956 near Vertus, a Premier Cru village in the Côte des Blancs. Fermentation and ageing for about 15 months in oak barrels before bottling.

"The 2017 Coteaux Champenois Blanc En Vieux Fombrés has turned out nicely, offering up aromas of pear, walnuts, lemon, nutmeg and spices. Medium-bodied, elegantly fleshy and incisive, it's bright and chalky, with a mineral, delicately oak-inflected finish."
