    November 13, 2016 - CF's Birthday: Disgorged July 2014. Lemon pie, ginger, orange, roses and earthy notes. Powerful and full bodied but there is genuinely good texture and balance, with a little more acid than the last bottle I had of this wine. Drinking well now.

    November 12, 2016 - Egly-Ouriet Tasting (Restaurant Gustav Zürich): Deg. July 12,
    A mighty champagne which I like most of Francis Egly. Some oxidative "Whisky" notes but the freshness in the foreground. Some brioche, toast notes, spicieness, oak perfectly integrated, nuts in the aftertaste. I prefer this wine around 5 years after degorgement, 94-95

    November 6, 2016 - Knightsbridge Annual Holiday Burgundy/Champagne Tasting and Sale: Tasting, brief note. Current release. Rich, precise, very long, very powerful with very elegant textural mouth feel. A highlight of the day. A Champagne I always enjoy.

    October 30, 2016 - @ Restaurant Vineum in Rotterdam: Replacement for the Comtes. Closed on the nose. The palate is full, tight and structured, will take on more complexity with time. (date of disgorgement: july 2015)

    October 4, 2016 - Clear, gold with a touch of salmon.
    Some oxidative notes on the nose.
    Ripe red apples, lemon peel, young strawberries, limestone minerality, apricots and biscuit. Dry with high acidity, this had an interesting style (apart from the oxidative character); on the one hand, it felt tight as if still developing, on the other hand it also sat rather heavy and full in the mouth.
    Powerful, yet complex and still balanced. Would be nice to try this again a couple of years down the road to see if it has improved. (Disgorged 2015)

Rockss and Fruit

  • By Lyle Fass

    (NV Egly-Ouriet NV Blanc de Noirs Grand Cru "Les Crayeres") It was very bready, very yeasty with a nice very pale rose color. The palate was a touch out of balance but there was nice concentrated fruit and wonderful delicate mousse but this definetly was in the typical powerful Egly style. Not that refined. Drink with steak. Expensive too for what it is. The Pinot Meunier (Les Vignes de Vrigny) is way better and a much better value.

    (NV Egly-Ouriet Blanc de Noirs Vieille Vignes) A tasting of the NV cuvée on the market at the time, I believe. A producer I have ear-marked for my forthcoming Champagne feature. A little cheesy on the nose, denoting Pinot here. Apples too, as pointed out by Toby. Good, altogether palate.
