  • Deg July 2007, 48 months on lees. Never tasted this deg/vintage before now, and I do see the points made by those who have. Nose is 98 points for me, but the mouth is wearing the signs of an off-vintage (2003) and is a bit on the dull (this is Egly BdN after all!) side. Spine and mousse is also struggling, although the latter is of less importance to me. A killer with comte still, which was the simple pairing for us today. I would say drink up now (with not too much expectations). I of course still like it though.

  • Bott 05/2010 - 58 mois. This wine is in a very good spot at the moment. Powerful and intense, with simply a divine nose dominated by lovely red apples while with some air the wine also let its shoulders down in the mouth displaying all the various tones that make up this gorgeausly complex and vinous champagne. Think my own bottles should be getting around 12 months of further cellar time in hope that this oxidative notes will get a bit more pronounced. Enjoyed with a number of hard mature cheeses, which proved to be a perfect match (particularly the Comte).

  • Opened for Kathy's birthday. Lovely pale salmon color in the flute, great mousse with lots of tiny bubbles, expressive nose of blood range, strawberry, wet slate, with a touch of yeast, earth, and brioche, more of the same on the palate, relatively high in acid which adds tension to the complexity on the mid palate, medium/big body, long, long, long flavorful finish and aftertaste.

  • Ungt, men väldigt gott på egen hand med.friskt med en liten härlig sötma i avslutningen. kommer antagligen att breddas ordentligt med åren. Favorit.

  • Dots and Bubbles with the Trait-d-union (Sydney, Australia): Single vineyard Les Crayères in Ambonnay with vines planted in 1946. 60% 2008 fruit and 40% 2007. Dosage is 3-4g/l.

    A much more powerful style after the previous two Egly wines. Lemon, orange, smoke, apple and brioche. The palate is powerful, with the richness of the fruit the centrepiece. I'd like to see a little more drive behind it, as at times it seems to want some more focus to bring the broadness into line, but overall it is impressive and will improve in bottle.

    (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.
