Gogget 2010. Halvfunky denne også. Ingen fruktaromaer igjen. Mye sopp, nøtter, røyk og sherrytoner. Meget moden nese. Over i munn får jeg litt Jura feeling av denne. Vanskelig å beskrive, men modent er det. Meget bra konsentrasjon og den løftes av en flott syre, men det er ikke nok til å gjøre dette til en flott vin. Lang. Husstil? Ja kanskje, men det blir litt over the hill for min del. 87-88p Av en eller annen grunn var dette en super match til røkt hval med en mild pepperrot-krem.
Another pre-Xmas Saturday Lunch (Cal Fuster (Serrateix)): As aperitif and pairing with starters. Didn't write down the disgorgement date but this one had a few years on it and certainly showed with a mature profile on nose with subtle ripe fruit and quince. Medium bodied with a lively acidity, the palate was just delicious, well balanced, savory and fresh. I liked this as it kept evolving in the glass. Monumental bubbly, great! 93-95
Detected an impression of a dark berry note in the nose, along with peach pit, a nuance of old wood, apple, pear tart; great structure, cleaner and more bright than the VP; very dry, but creamy and balanced; very long finish. Really tasty, needs 5 years in my opinion, though. -100% PN, 70 yr old vines from Crayere v.y., indigenous, fermented in old oak and tank, no malo, 3 yrs age, 2 g/l

(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.
