Tasting Notes

The V.P. stands for Vieillissement Prolongé (prolonged aging), as this wine spends an extended period on lees—about 84 months. It is a blend of 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay, and as for the Brut, the fruit is also from Ambonnay, Bouzy and Verzenay—all great Grand Cru terroirs. Vinification and élevage was in oak casks, and the dosage was a tiny three grams per litre.

The power of the fruit, plus the extended lees aging grants such harmony, so much length, so much complexity and texture, that the dosage seems irrelevant. It’s a vinous, powerful, super-pure Champagne of great depth and class. Intense and statuesque, there’s so much finesse as well… - 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
