    June 5, 2017 - Good breadth and depth here with soil tones nicely framing the not too ripe orchard fruit. Seems as if this will put on more weight with additional time in the bottle. 92+

    April 15, 2017 - Deg. January 2017. Super complex notes of just ripe apples, mirabelles, small red strawberries, chalk, baking spices, some honey, brioche and nutty notes. It's medium-full bodied, dense but with impeccable balance, slightly creamy mousse, but also pretty high acidity to balance everything. Excellent length. Still very young but another superb BdN from this fantastic producer. You can literally taste the old vines from this unique terroir providing plenty of minerality.

    March 25, 2017 - It's definitely one of the best Champagne I've ever had. A very expressive Blanc de Noirs (recommend to use a big red-wine glass rather than a flute to feel its aroma) - black fruit aroma coming out straight from its yellow gold liquid color. Magnificent bottle! Highly recommended!

    February 15, 2017 - pseudo note here as I was so engaged with eating and talking I couldn't give this my full attention. but whoa, that's good. deep gold color with a faint peach hue and scant fine bubbles. weighty. aromas of yellow apple, ginger, chalk, and plenty more. medium bodied and round in the mouth with a short burst of foam. palate shows ripe yellow apple, orange, red currant, ginger, cinnamon, and chalk with a long rolling finish approaching 60 seconds. many more components on the nose and palate I didn't get a chance to think through. went seamlessly with all components of the meal- Dijon vinaigrette salad, French bread, sous vide tarragon buttered lobster, and a sautéed mushroom medley with a champagne vinegar reduction. grand cru indeed.

    February 11, 2017 - From memory. @Albert 1er. Deg. 07/2015. 72 months on lees. Wow, this gave so much more pleasure than what I had expected from such a recent edition. Really broad and expressive. The 72 months on lees have been spent well. Classic and racy Egly Crayeres, perhaps only a bit more fruity than how I prefer them but this was soo good. How long will it hold when it is soo good alredy, I am not sure but I felt that there was material here for at least another 6-8 years for sure. Perhaps more.

Rockss and Fruit

    (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.
