NV Egly-Ouriet 1er Cru Vignes de Vrigny

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?

As always, this is 100% Pinot Meunier from 40-year-old vines, south-facing vineyard in Vrigny. Straight Pinot Meunier remains a rarity in Champagne and in Egly’s hands it is something truly unique. Low yields, old vines and ripe fruit make this one of the most intense, layered and opulent Meunier wines kicking around. Bottled without filtration, the dosage for this bottling was one gram per litre. Very vibrant showing ripe pear, yellow flowers and nuttiness, incredibly fine and expressive, simply gorgeous!
