Few winemakers plant Pinot Meunier on premier cru land; fewer still on terroir that is essentially an extension of the noble Montaigne de Reims. This 100% Pinot Meunier spent 38 months on its lees, way more than any other Pinot Meunier wine in the region. (For most Champagne houses, this is the time they give their very top cuvées; for Egly, this is the minimum). Aromas of red currants, roses and lively, warm notes of lemon curd on toast. Rich, fresh and extraordinarily complex on the palate; Mirabelle plums and peaches combine with a peppery energy. A classic Champagne that has no peer.
