Egly-Ouriet 2017 releases
30 January 2018

There’s no doubt about it, Egly-Ouriet Champagnes are a class act. Established in 1930, the estate now accounts for 15 ha of top vineyards in Ambonnay, Bouzy, Verzenay, Vrigny, and most recently Bisseuil. The heart of the operation however, lies in their impressive old vine Pinot Noir holdings in the Grand Cru village of Ambonnay. For three generations the family have consistently refined their plantings through massale selection to create a rare treasure trove of old vine plots populated with the region’s finest Pinot Noir clones. In the cellar Francis employs not one but two of the finest, most precise (and most expensive) presses available, truly the Rolls Royces of their world, allowing for extremely gentle extractions and continuous pressing at harvest time, thus quicker time from vine to juice, less oxidation and minimal need for sulphur dioxide. The cellars are kept exceptionally cool allowing for further reduction in SO2 usage while stabilising the wines prior to fermentation. Elevage takes place in barrel, without malolactic fermentation and the wines are given long ageing sur lie – from 4 years to ten years depending on the cuvee. Dosage is low, ranging from just 2g to 4g.

Today we are thrilled to release the 2017 disgorgements, a crystal clear set of releases that includes a new iteration of Grand Cru Brut Tradition, based on the wonderful 2012 vintage; a Vieillissement Prolongé (V.P) cuvee comprised of equal parts ’07, 08’ and ‘09 vintages; and a beautiful Les Crayeres VV Blanc de Noirs composed of the ‘09 and ‘10 vintages.
