Clean, clear. tons of bubbles (aggressively dancing) Brioche, almonds (nutty), off the nose Super tight, steely, astringent, super crisp. Apple tartness, Fresh, chalky, high minerality. Amazing champagne. Drinks like a 200+ dollar of bubble. Eclectic producer bonus point.
Medium yellow, not very bubbly. Toasty oak and stone fruit on the nose. Big, rich, black fruited with wood base. Lovely, concentrated old vine feel, excellent length, and a dose of tart acidity to enliven the finish.
Good Champagne. I didnt find it that special though, and although enjoyable, I think that I can do a little better for the price. May be due to the setting though as I had this at a dinner party. May have to revisit this again in a different setting to re-evaluate.
NV Champagne tasting (Singapore): Wow, wow, wow. Now we are talking. This is a different ball game in terms of quality altogether. Saline sea breeze, plenty of minerals complemented with some citrus and white fruit notes. Complex. Gentle mousse, long finish. Quality wise this is like a serious Burgundy white, head and shoulders above all other Champagnes tasted that day which were more like good quality whites, for sipping in the garden on a sunny Sunday afternoon.
disgorged Jan '14 after 54 months on the lees, every time I have an egly-ouriet I am always wondering why I don't drink it more often, the nose is subtle complex array of golden honeyed apple, nuts, spice and some dough, palate though is more focused and fresh, with green apple and lemon rind notes coming through on the mid palate, smooth effervescence with a nice finish

(NV Egly-Ouriet Champagne Brut Tradition Grand Cru) Light yellow color with abundant, steady, tiny bubbles; appealing, yeasty, almond, tart baked pear nose; creamy textured, tart pear, mineral, yeasty, tart apple palate with medium acidity; long finish (disgorged October 2010; 39 months on yeasts)
(NV Egly-Ouriet Brut Tradition Grand Cru) Purchased Summer 2007. This has a lovely rich colour, a deep straw gold. There is a rather fat mousse, very plentiful, with a myriad of streams of bubbles raising up to the surface of the wine. The nose is initially yeasty, before turning rather meaty and dense, suggesting Pinot Noir. There is a slightly cheesy streak, and then a more nutty, biscuity edge. Unlike Les Vignes de Vrigny here the palate is very well defined, a rather youthful and excited mousse at present making for a slightly coarse mouthfeel, but give it a year or two in bottle and this will settle. There is very fresh and admirable acidity, it is packed with flavours mirroring the nose, and is quite complete and harmonious after a little while in the glass during which the mousse settles somewhat. Really very good indeed, a dense and masculine in style which I would like to drink again.
