This bottling of 100% Pinot Meunier expression sourced from 40-year-old vines in the south-facing Vrigny vineyard. Low yields and ripe fruit, combined with Egly's winemaking, make this among the most complex and layered of its kind. Unfined and having just one gram of dosage per litre, it offers vibrancy and notes of ripe pear, yellow flowers, and a hint of nuttiness. Refined and elegant, it is sure to impress!
"Based on the 2018 vintage, Egly's newly disgorged NV Brut Premier Cru Les Vignes de Vrigny bursts with aromas of white peach, crisp orchard fruit, apple blossom and wet stones. Medium to full-bodied, ample and vibrant, with a pure, seamless profile and a precise, saline finish, it's an immensely charming wine produced from Pinot Meunier vinified in tank."
