    April 21, 2017 - Deg. Jan. 2017. Medium-lighter golden color. First holding back a little but opening up nicely in the glass. Pretty notes of orchid, ripe pear, some baking spices and brioche, also some small red berries (red currant, forest strawberries) and some mineral notes too. It's medium+ bodied with pretty high acidity and great slightly creamy mousse. Beautiful length. This is the 100% Pinot Meunier "entry-level" bottling of this fantastic producer... go figure!

    April 12, 2017 - Disgorge Jun-15. Same as previous bottles. Vibrant, young yet rich for a young EO. Lovely fruits and brilliant acidity. Undoubtedly it will improve with further ageing but already very enjoyable right now.

    March 8, 2017 - Agreed with the notes, very pleasant champagne with a bit of chewiness to it

    March 6, 2017 - Fine beads. Poached pear, quince, lemon drops, brioche, and honey on the nose; some yeastiness too. Can definitely tell the rich meunier fruit aged on lees. This sweet, rich nose is contradicted on the palate which surprises you with zinging acid and a ton of nervy minerality. To me, this combines the best of both worlds. Long finish.

    (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.
