Wine:

Entirely vinified in oak barrels, the Grand Cru Brut Rosé Champagne features a full and generous character, based on the 2017 harvest supplemented by the 2016 harvest (30%), a share of reserve wines (20%) including a touch of pinot noir from Coteaux Champenois. The aromas of morello cherries, red fruits, pepper and curry, a very delicate and refined palate, a swirling bubble and a magnificent final percussion make this a winey and subtle rosé at the same time. Ideal at the table with a duck with red fruits, a sweetbread with spices or even a lobster snacked with shellfish oil. Impeccable !

Egly-Ouriet, a paragon of Champagne excellence and awarded 3 stars by the RVF Guide, has carved out a name commensurate with its high standards. Spanning nearly 17 hectares, with ten classified as Grand Cru (in Ambonnay, Bouzy, and Verzenay), Francis Egly continues his remarkable work, which very few houses can match, now with the support of his son Charles and daughter Clémence. The balance and finesse of his wines are unmatched and represent an exceptional classicism.

From the very first cuvée in the range, one is captivated by this honest style, which balances strength and restraint while skillfully handling pinot noir. These are robust champagnes, underscored by very old vines, wines vinified in barrels and matured extensively in the cellar to refine and blossom at just the right moment. Purity, nobility, and definition are impressively regular features.
