Tasting Note:

For many, the Egly Ouriet flagship cuvee is ‘Les Crayeres’ cuvee produced from a specific parcel of very old vines planted in 1946, on very shallow soils above profound chalk. The vines’ roots descend deep into this pure chalk which brings forth a minerality that adds incredible dimension to the fruit of these old vines. A rich, savoury, tonic, umami fuelled nose opens to reveal notes of sun kissed, late autumn raspberries, Indian spices, ginger, honeycomb then nori, peach and fine sweet vanilla pod. It’s a multi-faceted nose that gives a little more with each swirl of the glass. On the palate Les Crayeres offers up huge concentration but also intense mineral tension, white flowers, red berry and fine Sicilian lemons dominate a mouthfeel that is both rich and nimble, and incredibly persistent. This iteration is a blend of 60% 2012 and 40% 2011, 100% Pinot Noir from Les Crayeres in Ambonnay. Disgorged in July 2019 after 72 months sur lie, with just 3g of Dosage.
