"Toasty and yeasty aromas dominate on the first nose, with swirling smoky intrigue. It's full and rich on the tongue, with grilled brioche and creamy intensity paired with bruised apple skin and mashed apple flesh. Custard and viennoiserie characters give weight and body, while the finish perks up with bitter nut skin and greengage freshness. This is a Brut NV to stock up on, as the complexity is impressive for the price. An all-round winner."

"The NV (2019) Extra Brut Les Prémices is a heady Champagne. Apricot, ginger, pastry, spice and tangerine peel confer an exotic flair, a theme that is ever-present. Rich and generous, with tons of textural presence, the 2019 is striking in its beauty. Dosage is 1 gram per liter. Disgorged: July 2023."

"Based on the 2019 vintage and disgorged this year with one gram per liter dosage, Egly's NV Brut Les Pr,mices offers up attractive aromas of orchard and stone fruits mingled with fresh bread and honeysuckle. Medium-bodied, fleshy and racy, with bright acids, a pretty mousse and a saline finish, it's the finest rendition of this new cuv,e to date."
