60% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay, with a small addition of Ambonnay Rouge, drawn from cask. A bouquet of roses and small red berries announces the wine's subtle, delicate perfume. The mouth shows more red fruit with a smooth, almost buttery quality; the density and complexity here are unparalleled. White pepper and wet stones follow on a lengthy, lively finish. A superb rosé.
The NV Brut Rose Grand Cru is made from vineyards in Ambonnay, Bouzy and Verzy. This is another totally convincing wine from Egly-Ouriet, not to mention one of the strongest wines in the line-up. The Rose Grand Cru captivates for its gorgeous, fragrant fruit and silky, refined finish. It is a jewel of a wine. The Rose Grand Cru spent 48 months on its lees and was disgorged in July, 2010. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2015.
Bright salmon-tinged pink. Wild strawberry, cherry skin and potpourri on the nose, which is complicated by candied ginger and gentle leesiness. Supple red fruit flavors are firmed by dusty minerals and given bite by a late note of white pepper. A juicy, deeply flavored pink Champagne that could handle rich fish dishes or aged cheeses.
A blend of vintages (60 percent from 2008, with '07, '06, '05 contributing to the balance) and varieties (65 percent pinot noir and 35 percent chardonnay), this grows in Egly's vineyards Ambonnay, Bouzy and Verzenay. It's a similar blend to Brut Tradition, with the addition of eight percent still red wine and a lower dosage. As such, it's extremely dry, presenting delicate herloom apple flavors and a stemmy, almost tannic tenson. Spice pours out of fthe tight finish, lasting with the fruit. Formidable rose.
