Tasting Notes

One of the highlights in this range, the NV Extra-Brut V.P. Grand Cru (Vieillissement Prolongé) is pure, vibrant and pulsing with energy. There is a crystalline purity to the flavors that is truly remarkable. Lemon confit, white flowers and mint give the V.P. a distinctly bright profile, even though the blend is 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay. There is so much to admire in this finely sculpted, nuanced Champagne from Egly-Ouriet. A crescendo of aromas, flavors and textures builds effortlessly, making it nearly impossible to put the glass down. The current release is a blend of vintages 2009, 2008 and 2007. Disgorged December 2017. Dosage is 2 grams per liter.

Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, July 2018

The NV Grand Cru Extra Brut V.P. (V.P. stands for Vieillissement Prolongé) is an assemblage of three vintages: one-third from 2009, one-third from 2008 and one-third from 2007. It's a blend of 70% Pinot Noir from Ambonnay, Bouzy and Verzenay and 30% Chardonnay from Ambonnay. Disgorged in July 2017, after 84 months on the lees, this intensely yellow colored wine shows an intense and complex bouquet with deep and rich yet precise fruit and some mineral notes. This is a concentrated, minerally fresh and complex cuvée that has a firm structure and a refreshing finish. It is the same blend as the Tradition, but the combination of three vintages and two and a half more years of bottle aging adds complexity and structure. This is salty and terribly fresh, not because of acidity but because of minerality, not a pinch of fat here, just minerals and structure.
