Product Description

Yet another striking release of this wine, made from superb Grand Cru vineyards (predominantly Ambonnay but also Bouzy and Verzenay). It's made up of 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay from low-yielding, perfectly tended vines that have been harvested fully ripe. Natural fermentation with wild yeasts only and the first period of maturation (before going to bottle) lasts almost one year with the wine remaining on its fine lees for the whole time. The wines clarify slowly and naturally, as was once typical across the region, and as such there is no fining nor filtration. Over 50% of the wine is fermented and aged in oak casks and the dosage is around 3 g/l, so Extra Brut territory. Make no mistake, even at this level, we are already soaring to remarkable heights of quality. If Egly made only this wine, he would still be one of the superstars of the Champagne region. Yes, the price has risen over the years, yet it remains a wine that easily backs up the price in the glass. It is perhaps scandalous to point it out, but it is nonetheless true, that this is a wine that puts to shame many a prestige cuvée at considerably higher prices. 

"The latest release of the NV Brut Grand Cru (which will no longer be known as "Tradition") was disgorged in June with three grams per liter dosage and is based on the 2014 vintage, complemented by reserve wines from 2013, 2012 and 2011. Opening in the glass with aromas of warm bread, fresh peach, green apples and dried white flowers, it's medium to full-bodied, elegantly textural and layered, with refined structuring extract, a bright spine of acidity and excellent concentration, concluding with a long and precise finish. This cuvée amounts to some 50,000 bottles, effectively half the domaine's production, and it remains one of Champagne's finest values." 93 points, William Kelley, The Wine Advocate, August 2019

"Francis Egly is one of the top handful of Champagne growers on everyone’s lips in the region at the moment, and rightfully so. His Brut Tradition is signature Egly – brilliantly crafted yet capturing the power of low yielding pinot noir in champagnes finest villages, within a profile of fresh definition and mineral character. A wonderfully expressive personality of red fruits, wild strawberries and cherries meshes with notes of vanilla and the taut definition of lemon zest, pulling into a scintillating and eminently textured finish, reflecting both its oak fermentation and the mineral structure of Egly’s magnificently positioned vineyards."
