Food Pairings for Egly-Ouriet Champagne Blend Champagne Grand Cru Brut Millésimé
90-94 points Richard Juhlin. 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay from 45-year-old vines. Vinified in barrels, 25% of which were new. Egly's vintage wine is one of the most sought-after grower Champagnes in the world -- and for good reason. Ambonnay's utterly unique terroir -- the source of all the fruit -- reveals itself in the rich, meaty depths of this Champagne. Malolactic fermentation was blocked to preserve freshness and acidity. Pale straw in the glass, the wine reveals aromas of white peaches and vanilla, with plenty of peppery spice. The mouth is awash with green apples, pears and peaches, honeyed brioche and oyster shells. The finish drives home classic Egly pepper and chalk, with incredible energy and liveliness. Fresh yet very sensual and a youthful gem that has many years ahead of it.
