DESCRIPTION
  • The V.P. stands for 'Vieillissement Prolongé' (prolonged ageing), as the wine spends so long on lees. A blend of 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay, the fruit comes from Ambonnay, Bouzy and Verzenay - all great Grand Cru terroirs. The power of the fruit, plus the extended lees ageing grants such harmony, such length, so much complexity and texture. A vinous, pure Champagne of great stature and breed. Powerful, yet with so much finesse. After some seven years in Egly's cellar, this cuvée is truly singing.

  • REVIEWS

    'Full brassy yellow colour; big and ballsy, aldehydes-plus, slightly lighter and rounder than the 2006 Grand Cru Millesime, soft and easygoing. A very complex, mellow, layered wine. Big structure, flavour and a very smooth, round palate. A wine of great power and harmony. '

    '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 litre.'
