Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 90

($98; this spent 61 months on its lees and was disgorged in August, 2006) Medium gold. Rich, smoky, deep aromas of leesy apple, apricot pit, pomegranate and rhubarbs. A chewy, substantial, medium-bodied wine with a distinctly toasty cast to its flavors of ripe pit fruits, toffee, fresh porcini and truffle. Serve this big, dense Champagne (I'm more tempted to call it a wine) with hearty, richly sauced dishes or the strongest cheeses. Not for those who prefer a racy style, but fans of the type will love it.

Wine Spectator | 90

Refined and racy, with hints of butterscotch and marzipan leading to flavors of quince paste, lemon meringue, black currant candy and smoky mineral. Citrusy acidity drives through to the moderate finish. Disgorged June 2010.

About This Producer


One of the small grower elite, Michel Egly's "cult" status owes to his ability to be somewhat of an alchemist when combining the elements that transform themselves into his phenomenal Champagnes. The quality and originality of these Champagnes stem from the land (grand cru and premier cru vineyards), the age of the vines (on average 40+ years), the precise vinification methods employed, and that intangible magical touch - knowing just what to blend and when.
