Tasting Notes

A unique cuvée of 100% old vine Pinot Meunier from the village of Vrigny

"The NV Brut Les Vignes de Vrigny 1er Cru, Egly's 100% Meunier, is positively gorgeous in this release. Warm and resonant, with a real sense of immediacy, the Les Vignes de Vrigny is showing beautifully today. Dried pear, spice, dried flowers and chamomile are all laced together in a Champagne of total class and personality. This release spent 36 months on its lees."

The Producer

Egly-Ouriet

Domaine Egly-Ouriet Champagne is sensual, unforgettable and highly sought after. This is a “cult” wine for Champagne lovers who crave the power and finesse of Pinot Noir-based wines. What you’ll find at this small family “grower” estate is truly vinous Champagne, striking in their concentration and complexity. There are winemakers who craft fine wine, and then there are artists who redefine their craft. When we witnessed the transition in the 1980s from Michael Egly to his son, Francis, it was clear that Francis wasn’t going to be satisfied with the Champagne status quo. He doesn’t consider his competition to be among the great Champagne houses, but instead among the legendary producers of Burgundy. Egly’s practice of harvesting very ripe grapes and aging their wines in barrels for years longer than almost any other Champagne houses, are some of the practices that set his art apart from the rest; yet it is the results that captivate. Egly-Ouriet Champagne is age-worthy, sumptuous and at times surreal; these bottles are unquestionably the pinnacle of Pinot Noir-based Champagne. A paradox of luxurious generosity and crystalline purity.
