The NV Brut Rosé Grand Cru pulses with real energy. Cranberry, white flowers, chalk and mint give the Rosé an airy brightness, especially in the aromatics, but there is plenty of depth as well. Far from an easygoing wine, Egly's Rosé has the charm to drink well as an aperitif as well as the structure to pair with just about anything at the dinner table. I would give it a few months in bottle, as the wine appears to still be recovering from its recent disgorgement in July, 2019.
The NV Brut Rosé Grand Cru is a serious wine. The Brut Rosé starts as the same wine as the Brut Tradition, and then sees about 2-3% still red wine, which, along with a very low dosage of 2 grams per liter, take the wine into a dimension of brightness, tension and focus, with little of the creaminess found in the Tradition. The white pepper, cranberry, rose petal and chalk notes are finely sketched in a Champagne endowed with remarkable purity and translucence. Disgorged December 2017. Dosage is 2 grams per liter.
