    November 29, 2014 - Champagne tasting from different crus ans styles with sushi and salmon, 8 champagnes in 4 flights,
    1. Flight Guy Charlemagne BdB Brut Reserve against Cazals Clos Cazals 2000
    2. Flight Gosset Grande Reserve vs. Dethune Cuvee des Princess
    3. Flight Diebolt-Vallois Rose vs Krug Rose
    4. Flight Egly-Ouriet VV Crayres vs Perrier-Jouet Belle Epoque 1982

    For me 2 nd best and overall 4th place.

    Disgorged 2013, mainly from the great 2008 vintage. Like always a great pleasure. Getting much better with air and temperature. in 5 years getting his whole excellence. In the future 96 from this vintage possible. Strong, oaky wine with a long finish

    October 26, 2014 - Really full-bodied and powerful, this is still crunchy and minerally. 100% barrel fermented PN, this blend of 07 and 08 spent 5 years on it's lees and saw a 3g/L dosage, it's really chalky for such a big wine. Impressive.

    September 18, 2014 - Blind ChAMpagne tasting of 4 bottles DE Sousa Le Mesnil 2005 (93p.) Egly-Ouriet GC VV Les Crayeres (93), Pol Roger NV Brut (92), Diebolt-Vallois Blanc de Blancs (90).

    I recognised the Egly. strong, nutty, chocolate, wood notes, complex, developing in the glas, disgorged 2013, great acidity and minerality, perfect to food. In my experience it is best to drink it 5 years after disgorgement, give him air and time

    July 18, 2014 - It is a bomb, this style of wine I like, dark golden coleur, fine perlage, red berries and few oxidative notes in the nose, bread, whisky, brioche in the palate, very long aftertaste, potential for at least 10 years (50+5+13+17+9)

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.
