Champagne Grand Cru Extra Brut VP

by Egly-Ouriet NV

Producer : Egly-Ouriet

Region : Champagne (France), France (France)

Bottle Per Case : 6 x 750 ml

Tasting Notes

“A blend of the 2009, 2010 and 2011 vintages that was bottled in 2012 and disgorged in early 2019, the latest rendition of Egly's NV Extra-Brut Grand Cru V.P. will be released later this year, and it will be well worth seeking out. Unfurling in the glass with notes of crisp yellow orchard fruit, pastry cream and almond paste, the wine is medium to full-bodied, concentrated and precise, with a layered core, impressive structuring dry extract and an elegant, pinpoint mousse, concluding with a long and penetrating finish. Even in the context of an impressive track record, this rendition of the V.P. impressed for its purity and definition.”

The Producer

Egly-Ouriet

Domaine Egly-Ouriet Champagne is sensual, unforgettable and highly sought after. This is a “cult” wine for Champagne lovers who crave the power and finesse of Pinot Noir-based wines. What you’ll find at this small family “grower” estate is truly vinous Champagne, striking in their concentration and complexity. There are winemakers who craft fine wine, and then there are artists who redefine their craft. When we witnessed the transition in the 1980s from Michael Egly to his son, Francis, it was clear that Francis wasn’t going to be satisfied with the Champagne status quo. He doesn’t consider his competition to be among the great Champagne houses, but instead among the legendary producers of Burgundy. Egly’s practice of harvesting very ripe grapes and aging their wines in barrels for years longer than almost any other Champagne houses, are some of the practices that set his art apart from the rest; yet it is the results that captivate. Egly-Ouriet Champagne is age-worthy, sumptuous and at times surreal; these bottles are unquestionably the pinnacle of Pinot Noir-based Champagne. A paradox of luxurious generosity and crystalline purity.
