Tasting Notes

This excellent, Grand Cru Champagne shows flavors of peach, peach skin, stony minerality and yeasty notes. Well balanced with both power and finesse, it is always a treat to open a bottle.

90% of the grapes come from Grand Cru Ambonnay and the rest come from Grand Cru Verzenay and Bouzy. Half the wine is from the 2015 vintage, 20% from 2014, 20% from 2013 and 10% from 2012. The wine is fermented and aged in barrel (15% new). It does not undergo malolactic fermentation. It is aged 48 months on the lees with only 2g/L of dosage and is bottled unfined and unfiltered.


Robert Parker April 2020: 93 points

"With this release, based on the 2014 vintage and disgorged in June-July 2019, what was formerly Egly's Brut "Tradition" becomes simply his NV Brut Grand Cru, a simplification that paves the way for several new cuvées from this reference-point grower that I'll be reporting about in due course. Changes in nomenclature aside, the wine in the bottle has never been better, and the latest release soars from the glass with an expressive bouquet of golden orchard fruit, honeycomb, citrus zest and freshly baked bread. On the palate, it's full-bodied, deep and layered, with real concentration and intensity, built around racy acids and chalky dry extract. The finish is long and lingering."
