Based on the 2016 vintage and deriving from vines in the Massif de Saint-Thierry, Egly’s debut release of the NV Brut Les Prémices, a tank-fermented Champagne that displaces the Vignes de Vrigny as the house’s entry-level bottling, was disgorged in July 2020 with two grams per liter dosage. Offering up aromas of peaches, orange rind and orchard fruit, it’s full-bodied, rich and fleshy, with ripe acids and an enveloping, generous core of fruit. It’s a blend of equal parts of the three grape varieties, and fully 30,000 bottles were produced.
