Egly-Ouriet Ambonnay Rouge Cuvee des Grands Cotes Coteaux Champenois 2020 Overview

-
Champagne Egly-Ouriet is known for its dedication to traditional and meticulous winemaking methods. Founded in 1930, Egly-Ouriet has become a cult Champagne producer with a loyal fanbase around the world. They focus on producing single-vineyard, vintage Champagnes, emphasising terroir expression and each vineyard parcel’s unique characteristics. The estate owns and manages vineyards in some of the most prestigious areas of Champagne, including Ambonnay, Bouzy, Verzenay, and others. These Grand Cru and Premier Cru vineyards are known for their high-quality Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes, the primary varieties used in Champagne production.

From an old-vine parcel in Ambonnay, Egly’s Coteaux Champenois Ambonnay Rouge is about as good as it gets for still Pinot Noir in Champagne.

Weather: The 2020 growing season and harvest occurred during the Covid-19 pandemic and the weather was favourable. After a wet winter, a warm latter half of March prompted the vines to start their growth cycle well in advance of a typical year. Budburst took place in early April and warm conditions ensured rapid growth. The weather in May was ok with flowering taking place early at the end of the month. June and July were cooler than average with some cloud-covered skies and rains. Due to the heatwave in early August, ripening advanced quickly but decelerated towards the end of the month. The 2020 season ended up with one of the shortest ripening periods ever, sugar levels were slightly below those of 2019 and 2018 but acidity levels remained fresher than in 2018.

Expert Reviews
94/100
William Kelley
“This bottling is reliably the most "Burgundian" of all the still wines produced in Champagne, and the 2020 Coteaux Champenois Ambonnay Rouge Cuvée des Grands Côtés Vieilles Vignes is certainly no exception, delivering aromas of dark berries mingled with spices, rose petals and toasty oak. Medium to full-bodied, deep and gourmand, with a layered core of fruit framed by rich, powdery tannins, it is just at the beginning of a long life.”
