A glowing light pink hue, the Grand Cru Brut Rose NV by EGLY-OURIET is composed of Pinot Noir aged on the lees for almost a year for clarity, accompanied by a third of Chardonnay for a floral finish. The nose is greeted with a pleasant attack of softy macerated red berries from the Pinot Noir. An exceptional aperitif, this champagne is also ideal with foie gras and smoked salmon canapés, or as an accompaniment to fish à la plancha.
"Based on the 2016 vintage and disgorged in early 2022, Egly's NV Brut Rosé Grand Cru is now bottled in dark glass, protecting it from light strike. Bursting with aromas of pear, tangerine, cherries and toasted almonds, it's medium to full-bodied, pillowy and vinous, with racy acids and a long, sapid finish. This brilliant, characterful wine is worth a special effort to seek out."
