Winemaker Francis Egly has earned a place at the very top of the grower Champagne elite, and his wines have achieved "cult" status. Egly Champagne is produced in microscopic quantities; it has few peers in terms of quality. Each bottle is a stunning example of the potential of Champagne.
The Brut Tradition Grand Cru—made from 35- to 40-year-old vines—exhibits exquisite elegance. Complex, intricate, deep, pure, extremely fine, with great balance and super finesse. There's great structure and length on the palate which features flavors of red fruit, dried flowers, mint, spice, green apples, mineral, toast, dried citrus, ginger and lemon zest. Perfect with sashimi.
