Review:
The 2018 Coteaux Champenois Cuvée des Grands Côtés is laced with bright red berry fruit, spice and new French oak. In this vintage, Egly's Coteaux Champenois is lithe and gracious more than it is rich, as it has been in some recent editions. I would prefer to drink it over the next few years.
