  • 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.

  • Big and open nose full of nuts, chocolate, coffee, bitter oranges, almonds, slight oxidation and a bit of stony minerals. High, but round acidity. No harshness at all, this is only premium pressings! Full bodied, high intensity and a long, but slightly warm finish (?).

    Would love to try this with a big of age, there is plenty of potential here. But nonetheless this is drinking very well right now.

  • Expressive aromatics of red fruits, small forest strawberries, some herbs, minerals (slate) and brioche. It’s medium-full bodied and dense without being heavy, has high acidity, small perfect mousse and fantastic length. A breathtakingly beautiful Blanc de Noirs with a beautiful density but also great freshness and precision. One of the favorites (or even the favorite) of the whole group. (96+ p.)

    (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.
