    April 18, 2019 - Dég. January 2017. Super perfumed and complex notes of lemon, small strawberries, chalky minerality, some brioche, also some mirabelle, cool apples, nuts, spices and some white flowers and honey notes too. Pretty full-bodied, with pretty high acidity and creamy mousse with only few bubbles, the acidity and minerality cuts right through the richness. Amazing length, too. A superb BdN and honestly one of my very favorite Champagnes. Love it.

    March 10, 2019 - Deg 12. 54 months on lees. Excellent bottle of champagne. Compared to last I tasted, 2 years ago, it was now very well balanced and fully integrated and drinking perfectly. I wish a had a more bottles of this. 93+

    March 8, 2019 - Deg 07/2013 - 60 months on lees. Quick note across 2 days: pnp it showed leather, coffee, bruised apples and some red apples. Lacking balance both on the nose and in the mouth. Day two, nose was so much cleaner and seductive, and more in sync. Better and fresher also in the mouth. By the last glass some very nice, sweet wood notes showed - excellent. But i am really unsure how this disgorgement will fare, even though it was better on day 2. Overall it is definitely not top quartile Les Crayeres. 91-93 over the course of two days.

    February 20, 2019 - 07/08 blend. Never really got going even when left to get some air. Overall seemed like the oxidative notes were over dominant without enough freshness to balance. An unexpectedly poor performance with some bottle age for this cuvee **1/2

    February 18, 2019 - 2014 disgorgement. a bit rounder than my last pass with this one. deep, booming. rich yet refreshing. panoply of red fruits, citrus, and tropical notes flanked by chalk, chocolate, and bread. all there, my consistent choice for favorite champagne.

Rockss and Fruit

  • By Lyle Fass
    7/20/2007 (link)

    (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.
