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. Vinification and élevage are in oak casks, with the dosage being a tiny 2 g/L, so seriously Extra Brut. The power of the fruit, plus the extended lees ageing grants such harmony, so much length, complexity and texture, that the dosage seems irrelevant. It’s a vinous, pure Champagne of great stature and breed. Powerful, yet with so much finesse. After resting some seven years in bottle in the Egly-Ouriet cellars, this cuvée is singing.


“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.” 94+ points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com, July 2018

Details

“Few producers can equal Francis Egly in skill and experience, and larger houses cannot hope to emulate the cultivation norms…” - Michel Bettane, The World's Greatest Wines.

“What Larmandier-Bernier achieves with Chardonnay, so Egly-Ouriet manages for Pinot Noir: wines of riveting purity and concentration.” - Andrew Jefford, The New France

“Egly-Ouriet is one of the reference-point growers in Champagne, with a deep selection of wines that offer remarkable transparency to site, vintage and variety ... These are among the most pure, unmanipulated Champagnes readers will come across, and the estate’s new releases are all highly recommended.” - Antonio Galloni, The Wine Advocate
