Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
Egly Ouriet, Brut, Les Premices, NV

Beautiful fresh precision here, light on its feet but with Egly drive and a salty finish. Very fine mousse, with a sense of fine detail to the white fruited citrus scented freshly baked bread flavours. Delicious now but will age. A compelling release! Based around the 2019 vintage (50%) with 2018 (30%) and 2017 (20%) completing the blend. Equal parts Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Meunier. Disgorged in July 2023 with 1g dosage.

Sarah Mayo, The Wine Independent
Simple and easy to approach, Les Prémices NV presents attractive notes of white peach, apricot and honey. The light-bodied palate offers subtle notes orchard fruit and white flower supported by a soft acid line. Equal parts Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier, this cuvée is based on the 2019 vintage, with reserve wine from the previous two years. Stainless fermented and aged three years on lees, it is finished with a one gram per liter dosage. This cuvée was created in 2016 as a family project to celebrate a new generation of winemaking at the domain. Disgorged July 2023.

A new wine in the Egly range, the NV Brut Les Prémices is a Chardonnay/Pinot Noir/Meunier blend from Trigny, all 2016 vintage. Bright floral notes and the natural richness of Pinots come together nicely in this entry-level bottling. There is good energy, but naturally not quite the textural breadth of the top wines. Disgorged: July, 2020, with 36 months on the lees.

A class act. Top-drawer champagnes with a real cult following. These guys are old hands, one of the original grower champagne producers before anybody even talked about “grower champagnes”. The style is authentic above all, with minimal filtration, and shows off the outstanding terroirs they have in Ambonnay. They are iconoclastic, the most distinctive characteristic of which is their use of extended lees contact and barrel fermentation. The grapes are harvested ripe and dosage is low. These factors really brings out the richness of their Pinot Noirs, a luxury which they are afforded by the natural minerality and acidity they get from their terrific sites. These are outstanding champagnes and not to be missed.
