Galloni über: Champagne Grand Cru Extra Brut "V.P."

-- Galloni: The NV Extra Brut V.P. Vieillisement Prolongé is a blend of fruit from vineyards in Bouzy, Ambonnay and Verzenay, all Grand Cru villages. Extended time on the lees of 84 months gives the V.P. its depth, texture and resonance. Ample and inviting on the palate, with tremendous richness, the V.P. is just sublime. Red cherry, kirsch, chamomile, mint, apricot, honey and dried flowers all open up in a beautifully resonant Champagne that hits all the right notes. Disgorged: July, 2019. 96/100


Decanter über: Champagne Grand Cru Extra Brut "V.P."

-- Decanter: Although this appears as the 'house' non-vintage, in character it is more akin to a vintage wine that needs some time on cork. Tasted young, the saturated fruit – apricot, spiced apples, grilled lemons – is already expressive, yet not fully unsprung. Based on 2018 with 40% reserves back to 2016, the heat of 2018 is in the fruit profile rather than weight or grip, and is more about persistence than pure power, underlined by the oak élevage yet not coloured by it. 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay from Ambonnay, Bouzy and Verzenay. 100% barrel fermentation. 95/100


Parker über: Champagne Grand Cru Extra Brut "V.P."

-- Parker: A blend of the 2009, 2010 and 2011 vintages that was bottled in 2012 and disgorged in early 2019, the latest rendition of Egly's NV Extra-Brut Grand Cru V.P. will be released later this year, and it will be well worth seeking out. Unfurling in the glass with notes of crisp yellow orchard fruit, pastry cream and almond paste, the wine is medium to full-bodied, concentrated and precise, with a layered core, impressive structuring dry extract and an elegant, pinpoint mousse, concluding with a long and penetrating finish. Even in the context of an impressive track record, this rendition of the V.P. impressed for its purity and definition. 94/100
