Tasting Notes

The fruit comes from old vines in a single terroir known as Les Crayères. The vines here were planted in 1946, so are now over 70 years old. The soil is hardly 30 cm deep, then it’s chalk, hundreds of metres down – hence the name of the site (‘craie’ is French for ‘chalk’). The old vines are deeply rooted in this chalk subsoil, giving the wine its classic, mineral vibrancy, woven through the powerful, textured Pinot fruit. The concentration here is a product of the ripeness that both the site and its ancient vines naturally deliver. Les Crayères is situated mid-slope with a full south-facing exposure, not far from the estate’s cellars. The wine that results from all these factors is both a tribute to the greatest sites of Ambonnay and to the Egly-Ouriet Domaine. Houses that emphasise blending may consider a 100% old vine Ambonnay like this to be too rich. Egly gives it to you pure and powerful. It’s a unique wine, built for food and for ageing. Always better a year or two after landing, this is already drinking wonderfully well. Like all Egly Champagnes, it’s a wine first and a Champagne second. A unique expression of a singular terroir, and without doubt one of the greatest wines of the region. - Importer Note

'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
