Egly Ouriet, Les Vignes de Vrigny, 1er Cru, Brut

NV

Tasting Notes


ABV:
12.5 %

Notes

Explosive and exuberant, with deep and golden cane fruit notes. A crisp, tight mousse. Touches of spice and stone fruit with almond below. This displays all of the excitement of Meunier, with bold fruit and plenty of volume on the palate – suggesting this will probably best a year from disgorgement. A pure Meunier cuvee from the village of Vrigny. Based around the 2019 vintage (50%), with 2018 (30%) and 2017(20%) completing the blend. Disgorged in July 2023 with 2g dosage.

Notes
The NV Vieilles Vignes de Vrigny (Meunier) is one of the best vintages of this cuvée I can remember tasting. Bright and finely cut, the Vieilles Vignes sizzles with tension from start to finish. Dried pear, spice, crushed rocks, mint and white pepper all race out of the glass. Meunier has rarely been so refined, so nuanced. Give this a year or two to unwind. Dosage is 2 grams per liter. Disgorged: September, 2022.

Egly Ouriet

Egly Ouriet

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.
