NV Egly-Ouriet Grand Cru

Egly-Ouriet, based in the village of Ambonnay in the Montagne de Reims, was established in 1930. The Champagne house has become a reference point for grower Champagne and rose to greatness under current owner Francis Egly, who took over the family estate in 1982. It is a small estate of 12 hectares with great holdings of vineyards in Grand Cru and Premier Cru villages. Egly firmly believes that extended lees aging is crucial for expressing the terroir of his wines, giving the wines great complexity for which this grower is rightly famous. The lees aging for the wines ranges remarkably from 40 months to nearly 100 months for the vintage one. The results speak for themselves!


Why do we like it?

Yet another striking release of this wine, this is made exclusively from Grand Cru vines predominantly in Ambonnay but also Bouzy and Verzenay. It’s 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay from low-yielding, perfectly tended vines that have been harvested fully ripe. Natural fermentation was with wild yeasts only and the first period of maturation (before going to bottle) lasted almost one year, with the wine remaining on its fine lees for the whole time.Over 50% of the wine was fermented and aged in oak casks. The dosage was two grams per litre, so extra-brut style and a lot of ripe pear, toasty, ritrsu oil flavours and creamy mouthfeel! Another great delivery from Egly-Ouriet!
