    October 14, 2019 - Another fantastic bottle of this spectacular Champagne. Showed great oxidative richness that was like Grand Cru Burgundy. This just happened to have bubbles. Wonderful tonic note with cherry skins and brioche. Serious wine, but also so fun to drink.

    October 14, 2019 - A late 2014 disgorgement this wine has a quite deep yellow colour with a touch of brass. The nose is both complex and fresh with strawberry, red apple, yellow peach, nougat, brioche and leatherwood honey. The palate is beautifully balanced with the rich fruit matched by a fine acid and mineral line and drive. Not oxidative but developed with some secondary characters 5 years after disgorgement. Delicious.

    August 5, 2019 - Not blind, classical champagne flute, deg. 01/15
    A stunner. Typical E-O oxidative style but not annoying or disturbing. Not comparable to Selosse' vinification. Fresh, a hint of macadamia nuts, powerful and elegant likewise. Beautifil Balance. The best wine of Francis. I prefer it against his Millesime. I think his BdN Need 4-7 of bottle aging to Show his grace and elegance. When i wrote my first TN of this wine I wrote Whisky nose. I can still understand. 95-96

    August 5, 2019 - Very vibrant fruit with a mature secondary smell. Fresh and clean. Much better than previous bottle with exact same date of degorgement May 2010.

    July 26, 2019 - This is still my favorite blanc de noirs. Beautiful strawberry shortcake aroma, slight lime tang on the palate. Lively and pleasantly full bodied without being overbearing. Delicious. Wish it was easier to buy because it is hard to keep it in the cellar for long.
    Score: 94. Relative to expectations: 0 but only because I have had this many many times and know what it is. I keep coming back for more.

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.
