    August 22, 2016 - Deep golden color. Lots of brioche on the nose but lacking some oomph. Tired maybe? The palate confirms that this bottle's best years are behind it. Initial attack is fine with good mature complexity. Falls off fast and turns slightly bitter. Not the best but has some nice features. Drink up. (84)

    August 15, 2016 - My 1st 100% Pinot Meunier and I believe the 4th or 5th wine I've had from E-O. This was spectacular as the others. Brioche, herbs and slight white pepper, oyster shell and sea bed, citrus for days with an elegant mouth feel and with others improved and expanded with out getting flabby as it warmed up. Great starter but also killer pairing with heirloom and chard octopus salad and Coho salmon.

    May 27, 2016 - September 2015 disgorgement. I liked this more than I expected given the recent disgorgement and 100% pinot meunier. Clean on the nose although not necessarily crisp. Pear and apple with wet slate. Fruit and limestone on the palate with balancing mid-range acids across the midpalate and finish. A straightforward wine at this point lacking complexity and secondaries, but certainly well constructed

    April 22, 2016 - Yummmm. Very bready aromas, lots of autolysis and leesy action which is nice. Grandiose palate of explosive stonefruit, peaches and cream. Lovely length and acid. Solid champers, will buy again. Date of Disgorgement: September 2015

    (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.
