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
'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
