Veuve Fourny Grande Reserve Brut 1er Cru

Pristine aperitif champagne of sufficient subtlety to allow its chalky minerality to speak softy but confidently. Its pale hue anticipates the purity and freshness of its tight, linear palate, shimmering with pure lemon blossom, crunchy granny smith apples and fresh lemon juice. $59 at WineStar and Cloudwine.
