    October 15, 2017 - Disgorged in 2014. Relatively dark in colour. Intense nose with red berries and some autolytic character. Very high acidity and concentration on the palate. Long and powerful. Great!

    September 30, 2017 - Deg 2015. Fresh with light touches of green apple and pear on the nose, light brioche on the palate, slight strawberry shortcake touch. No rough edges and delightful. Big crowd-pleaser. Good acidity but in no way bracing. Should keep for a few years if necessary, but it is a charmer now.

    September 29, 2017 - Deg 07/2013 - 60 months on lees. From first sip I felt this was perhaps not an optimal bottle. A bit funky nose. A faint wood sting, that blew off over the next 10 minutes. Compared to the the 07/2014 (62 months lees) that followed, it had quite a bit development. It benefited from time in the glass for sure, lovely aromas, seamless and velvety in the mouth. Unfortunately, the acidity was not quite in sync and there was a strong note of grape fruit in the finish that put me off somewhat. 91p.

    September 29, 2017 - Deg 07/2014 - 62 months on lees. This bottle followed the 07/2013 (60 months lees) disg and was quite a step up in concentration and overall balance, as well as freshness. Rich, expressive and vinous as usual. The young fruit is perhaps a bit dominating, but seems to have the backbone to carry some aging here. So while it is still early days, with the 07/2013 bottle in mind I will be checking in on again 18 months from now. 92-93p, with clear upside.

Rockss and Fruit

    (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.
