Tasting Notes

The V.P. stands for Vieillissement Prolongé (prolonged ageing), as the wine spends so long on lees. A blend of 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay. The fruit comes from Ambonnay, Bouzy and Verzenay – all great Grand Cru terroirs. Vinification and élevage are in oak casks, with the dosage being a tiny 2 g/L, so seriously Extra Brut. The power of the fruit, plus the extended lees ageing grants such harmony, so much length, complexity and texture, that the dosage seems irrelevant. It’s a vinous, pure Champagne of great stature and breed. Powerful, yet with so much finesse. After resting some seven years in bottle in the Egly-Ouriet cellars, this cuvée is singing. - Importer Note

'Few producers can equal Francis Egly in skill and experience, and larger houses cannot hope to emulate the cultivation norms, " - Michel Bettane, The World's Greatest Wines.


'What Larmandier-Bernier achieves with Chardonnay, so Egly-Ouriet manages for Pinot Noir: wines of riveting purity and concentration. " - Andrew Jefford, The New France


'Egly-Ouriet is one of the reference-point growers in Champagne, with a deep selection of wines that offer remarkable transparency to site, vintage and variety ... These are among the most pure, unmanipulated Champagnes readers will come across, and the estate's new releases are all highly recommended. " - Antonio Galloni, The Wine Advocate
