MV Egly Ouriet Brut Tradition Grand Cru
70% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay from the villages of Ambonnay, Bouzy and Verzenay. 100% Grand Cru fruit from 35-40 year-old vines. 20% of the wine is fermented in barrel, the remainder in tank. This wine is the workhorse of the domaine and represents over half of the production. More than any other cuvee, this announces the true style of Egly-Ouriet, showing a clear dominance of Ambonnay terroir.
“The NV Brut Tradition Grand Cru possesses gorgeous warmth and openness in a radiant, broad-shouldered style that is impossible to resist. Deep and textured through to the finish, the Tradition Grand Cru combines richness and minerality with notable finesse. Spice and smoke nuances add complexity on the dazzling finish. The Brut Tradition Grand Cru spent 36 months on its lees prior to being disgorged in July, 2010. Anticipated maturity: 2011-20118. Egly-Ouriet remains one of Champagne’s leading small growers. From top to bottom these wines impress for their inimitable class. A non-interventionalist approach in the vineyards and cellar, old-vine parcels in top vineyards and long lees-aging are some of the qualities that define these sublime Champagnes.” – 92 Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
“Bright gold. An exotic bouquet calls forth peach pit, pear skin, chamomile and vanilla, with a spicy topnote. Fleshy, expansive and deeply pitched orchard and pit fruit flavors gain energy with air, picking up notes of lemon pith and licorice. Closes broad and long, with resonating spiciness and very good punch.” – 92 Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar
