Egly-Ouriet Brut Tradition Champagne Grand Cru 75cl 12.5% ABV
Egly-Ouriet Brut Tradition Champagne Grand Cru
Egly-Ouriet is a class act with a real cult following and one of the original grower champagne producers. Owner and winemaker Francis Egly produces multi-dimensional wines of great precision and emotion, based on Pinot Noir from the Ambonnay Grand Cru.
The most distinctive characteristic of Egly-Ouriet is the extended lees contact, and barrel fermentation across the board. They also use the finest press, and maintain a chillingly cold cellar, allowing the lowest possible levels of sulphur. The grapes are harvested ripe and dosage is low, which further brings out the natural richness of the Pinot Noir, a luxury which they are afforded by the intense chalk minerality and acidity they get from their terrific sites.
