Tasting Notes

This is 70% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay from 40-year-old vines in Ambonnay, aged in barrel until bottling, with no malo. Dosage is 5g/l. It is a deep, layered yet powerful expression of Ambonnay and, with the Blanc de Noirs, represents one of the very finest wines of the Montagne de Reims Grand Cru area. The 2008 harvest was clearly a great one in the Champagne area and Egly hasn’t missed his chance to fashion an astonishing Millésime. This is clearly one of the greatest releases from this maker, as the note below makes clear. - 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
