Based on the 2014 vintage and disgorged in July 2020, the latest release of Egly’s NV Brut Rosé Grand Cru is showing beautifully, wafting from the glass with aromas of tangerine oil, crisp red berries, toasted almonds and white flowers—in other words, much as I described the 2013-base last year but with a touch more aromatic intensity. Full-bodied, vinous and enveloping, with superb depth at the core, racy acids and a pillowy mousse, it concludes with a long, penetrating finish. While it’s showing beautifully today, I’d love to revisit it with another year on cork. 94+ points, William Kelley, The Wine Advocate

Rumbling power with delicate finesse, this is a rose of medium salmon hue, bursting with the exuberance and beguiling transparency of Ambonnay pinot noir. Fragrant rosebuds and wild strawberries open into glorious depth of black cherry fruits of exacting ripeness, cherry kernel, fig and mixed spice. Very fresh and focussed for its age, with a universe of complexity lingering very long, precise and lively amidst fine chalk mineral texture. 96 points, Tyson Stelzer, The Champagne Guide

This is simply one of the greatest rosé wines of Champagne. The blend is 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay with 50% from the 2016 vintage and the vins de réserve split between 2015 and 2014Then there is the five per cent of Egly’s Coteaux Champenois Rouge (the finest red wine of the AOC in our opinion—and not only ours!) that gives the wine its colour and a great deal of character as wellDosage is a negligible two grams per litre. The fruit is from 100% Grand Cru vines, grown by one of the most meticulous vignerons in the region. This is why it’s so good. Interestingly this is always Egly’s most delicate wine. Whereas power is typically a key feature of any Egly wine, the Rosé is unbelievably fine, perfumed and red-fruited; something truly special.
