    July 24, 2017 - 46months on lees - Deg 2012. Mix of 06/07
    Amber yellow. Mature funk. Like complex pear cider. Good acidic bite.
    4 bottles left.

    July 23, 2017 - Dinner at Formento's (Chicago, IL): Disgorged July 2016. It's a little surprising that this is actually my first time trying an Egly-Ouriet. But in any case, I found a wine that seems to me to be on the cusp of becoming a more oxidative style. This is a thick and fleshy champagne, full of heft and body, and there's a sappy, bruised apple character here that reminds me of the best of those oxidative wines. This is on the richer side of the champagne spectrum, and there's also a slight breadiness to this wine as well.

    July 1, 2017 - Always my favorite low cost NV. Lovely rich bouquet -- toasty, citrus, floral... gorgeous palate for a young EO.

    May 23, 2017 - Degorgement January 2017. 100% pinot meunier. Pear, lime, brioche. Creamy fullbodied, spicy, good acidity, fine length. Fantastic quality for price.

    (NV Egly-Ouriet Les Vignes de Vrigny) Purchased Summer 2007. This is a 100% Pinot Meunier cuvée. A moderately rich golden hue, with a huge bead - there are bubbles just everywhere. The nose is very aromatic, floral and yet rather meaty, with a biscuity, caramel character at first, and then plenty of candied fruits. The palate starts off fresh, with a full and lively mousse as might be expected from the wine's appearance, and it is full of characterful flavour. It is nicely rounded, soft, fairly well composed, but to be critical the definition isn't really there; there is good flavour, but without the framework of acidity or structure behind it. But it is certainly interesting to drink, but I think the reason Pinot Meunier is employed most commonly as a blending grape - not in the grander cuvées - is evident here.
