Egly Ouriet Vp Grand Cru Brut NV
"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" WA 12/10
External Reviews for Egly Ouriet Vp Grand Cru Brut
75% Pinot Noir, 25% Chardonnay from 35- to 40-year-old vines; 100% grand cru. Hazelnut cookies and white peaches play with lemon butter on the nose. Noble Pinot Noir dominates the mouth. Lime zest and cranberries linger on the very long finish. A classic example of the greatness of Ambonnay terroir.
