Nose of ginger, raspberries, black-berries, pepper, nuts and stone fruits. Lots of pepper and raspberry on the palate with chalk, peaches and more pepper and raspberry on the finish. This single-vineyard Champagne is made up of 100% Pinot Noir, from 60 year-old vines in the Grand Cru village of Ambonnay. With this wine, Francis Egly is trying to resuscitate the true taste of the Montagne de Reims region. This is the way it tasted 50 years ago, when before it was customary to mix in 25-40% Chardonnay. He intends this to be an expression of the vineyard's super-chalky soil, which is a sort of amplified version of Champagne's usual soil composition: 10-11 inches of real soil on the surface, and then solid chalk beneath.
