    Golden in color, the 2004 Brut Millesime Grand Cru offers an intense and precise aroma of slightly toasted whole-grain bread, brownish apples, apple strudel, oranges, dried fruits, raisins, brioche, and hints of mocha and nougat. This full-bodied yet lovely, really pure and dry wine is very elegant, quite expressive on the palate, and finishes with a refreshing lime aroma and citric acidity. This is a classic for fans of complex Champagnes of great purity and finesse. The wine is very well structured and quite firm in the finish and aftertaste, and can be stored for 4-5 years. The wine was sourced from old vines in grands cru vineyards of Ambonnay and bottled for the second fermentation without filtration. It was then kept on the lees for 100 months and disgorged in November 2013.

  • 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.
