Importer Note:


Perhaps the best introduction to the wines of Francis Egly - this is a wine that does not require any bottle age. It is stunning right now! This is all about Grand Cru, low yield Pinot Noir. Natural fermentation with wild yeasts only. The first period of the élevage lasts almost one year, with the wine remaining on its fine lees. The composition comprises 50% from the 2006 vintage with 20% 2005, 20% 2004 and 10% 2003. The wines clarify slowly, as was once typical across the region. 20% of the wine is fermented in oak casks. Dosage is a low 3 to 4 grams per litre. It is the wine we order and receive the most of although demand still vastly outstrips supply. 


"The NV Brut Tradition Grand Cru possesses gorgeous warmth and openness in a radiant, broad-shouldered style that is impossible to resist. Deep and textured through to the finish, the Tradition Grand Cru combines richness and minerality with notable finesse. Spice and smoke nuances add complexity on the dazzling finish. The Brut Tradition Grand Cru spent 36 months on its lees prior to being disgorged in July, 2010. Anticipated maturity: 2011-20118." 92 points, Antonio Galloni, The Wine Advocate # 192 Dec, 2010.

Details

“Few producers can equal Francis Egly in skill and experience, and larger houses cannot hope to emulate the cultivation norms…” - Michel Bettane, The World's Greatest Wines.

“What Larmandier-Bernier achieves with Chardonnay, so Egly-Ouriet manages for Pinot Noir: wines of riveting purity and concentration.” - Andrew Jefford, The New France

“Egly-Ouriet is one of the reference-point growers in Champagne, with a deep selection of wines that offer remarkable transparency to site, vintage and variety ... These are among the most pure, unmanipulated Champagnes readers will come across, and the estate’s new releases are all highly recommended.” - Antonio Galloni, The Wine Advocate
