The NV Brut Rosé Grand Cru is distinguished, among other things, by the five years it spent on its lees, which is quite long for Rosé Champagne. Bright and beautifully sculpted, the Rosé sizzles with tension and yet it also possesses a sense of inner suaveness that is impossible to miss. This is such a classy wine. Disgorged: July, 2020.

Egly-Ouriet's NV Brut Rosé is terrific. Bright cranberry, raspberry, white flowers, citrus and chalky notes are some of the signatures. Fine, elegant and chiseled, the Brut Rosé possesses terrific balance and class. Bright, saline notes extend the finish. Rating: 92 Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com(Jul 2017)

The NV Brut Rosé is a rich, weighty wine that blossoms on the palate with a multi-dimensional, textured expression of fruit. The wine possesses striking minerality and nuance which paints a very complete picture of how great rosé Champagnes can be. Simply put, this is an utterly beautiful wine readers will not want to miss. Rating: 92 Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com

Champagne Egly-Ouriet

Francis Egly is the current fourth-generation head of Ambonnay Champagne grower-producer Egly-Ouriet. He is against 'vins stereotypés', believing that his mission is 'to please but also to surprise', and insisting that 'the biggest mistake in Champagne is to go against nature'.

With the exception of the Pinot Meunier vines in Vrigny, the 9 hectare estate is exclusively Grand Cru, stretching across Ambonnay, Bouzy and Verzenay. Pinot Noir is planted on 7 ha, Chardonnay on 2 ha, and the average age of the vines is more than 35 years. The exposure of many of the vines is south or south east, which gives exceptional ripeness, while the poverty of the shallow and chalky subsoil give a strong mineral streak.

The already high natural ripeness levels are raised higher still by the green-harvesting. Egly is adamant that acidity is not fundamental, and almost always sufficient, while bitterness is always fatal. An advocate of 'lutte raisonée' he avoids all insecticides, uses only organic fertilisers and continues to plough as his predecessors have always done.
