  • TASTING NOTE: "Complex aromas of pear and peach mingled with Meyer lemon, orange oil, buttered toast, white flowers, praline and smoke. Full-bodied, fleshy and layered, it's vinous and concentrated, with tangy acids that girdle its chiseled core of fruit. Long and penetrating, it concludes with a saline finish." William Kelley
  • ABOUT THE WINE: This latest release was bottled after the 2014 vintage had spent close to one year in cask and blended with 40% reserve wines from the 2013 vintage. All of the vinification and aging for both vintages was in barriques, before being bottled and spending 72 months on lees before minimal dosage of two grams per litre. The fruit comes from old vines in a single terroir known as Les Crayères. The vines here are 75 years old. The soil is barely 30cm deep, then it’s chalk, hundreds of metres down—hence the name of the site (craie is French for ‘chalk’). The concentration is a product of the ripeness and low yields that both the site and its ancient vines naturally deliver.  It’s a unique wine, built for food and for aging and is considered the greatest Blanc De Noir. 
  • ABOUT THE PRODUCER: Francis Egly is one of Champagne's most iconic cult figures. Alongside Selosse and Larmandier-Bernier, his wines are considered some of the very top expressions of small-scale Champagne. They are some of only a handful of growers who follow biodynamic, organic or 'living soil' principals of viticulture. These three producers do not use chemical fertilisers, herbicides, pesticides or chemical anti-fungal sprays; they work on very low yields (roughly half the regional average); produce vineyard or village specific wines; minimise the use of sugar addition and follow a very natural winemaking regime with no fining or filtration and low levels of sulphur. Egly has been a longtime advocate of oak barrels, purchased from his friend Dominique Laurent in Burgundy, and today he works with about 200 barriques, enough to handle roughly half of his production. Egly credits vinification in wood with not only providing more structure and more aging potential, but also bringing out more of the character of the terroir. Noted for his rich, intense, Pinot Noir dominant style, these are remarkable, cellar-worthy wines that paint a unique picture of Champagne and have helped redefine the region. Egly-Ouriet's holdings are in Ambonnay, with vineyards also in Bouzy, Verzenay and Trigny.
