A very rare cepage (blend) of 100% Pinot Meunier which is generally a really interesting and affordable Champagne from one of the highest regarded Champagne houses. Egly Ouriet is one of few Champagne houses who are organic/biodynamic and sustainable. They are also held in very high regard by sommeliers around the world and feature on many of the best restaurant wine lists. The Champagnes are full bodied and fruit forward with power and focus all at the same time. It is one of few Champagnes I tend to decant to get the most enjoyment out of. - Chris L


Vintages: 2014 (50%), 2013 (30%) and 2012 (20%).


100% Pinot Meunier from a single, 40-year-old, south-facing vineyard in Vrigny, a commune located on the Petite Montagne de Reims (very close to Gueux, where Jérôme Prévost is based). Straight Pinot Meunier remains a rarity in Champagne and in Egly’s hands it is something unique. Low yields, old vines and ripe fruit make this one of the most intense, layered and opulent Meunier wines kicking around. Spicy, fruity, fleshy, yet very dry and mineral. Bottled without filtration. Dosage for this bottling is 6 g/L.


“The NV Brut Les Vignes de Vrigny 1er Cru is bright and chiseled, with terrific cut to balance the natural richness of the Meunier. White flowers, mint, orchard fruit and almonds add layers of complexity, but it is the wine's energy that is especially compelling. This release spent 39 months on its lees and was disgorged in October 2016.” 92 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com, December 2017


“Egly-Ouriet crafts one of Champagne’s most flattering single-vineyard Pinot Meuniers, faithfully translating every detail of the succulent depth of this grape’s enticing full golden yellow hue and its fleshy Mirabelle plum, red cherry, dried pear and grapefruit character. ” 95 points, Tyson Stelzer, The Champagne Guide 2015-2016

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
