Wine:

Crafted from old vines in Ambonnay classified as Grand Crus, with two-thirds pinot noir, the 2014 Champagne Blanc Grand Cru is a wine brimming with energy, offering exquisite harmony and finesse. Fully vinified in barrels, it deserves a few more years of cellar aging; its youthful aromas of fresh and juicy fruits will evolve, supported by a dimension of freshness and precision that is already remarkably distinct. This fabulous bottle possesses a rare sensuality. It may well be the most captivating of all the champagnes produced by the estate…

Egly-Ouriet, a paragon of Champagne excellence and awarded 3 stars by the RVF Guide, has carved out a name commensurate with its high standards. Spanning nearly 17 hectares, with ten classified as Grand Cru (in Ambonnay, Bouzy, and Verzenay), Francis Egly continues his remarkable work, which very few houses can match, now with the support of his son Charles and daughter Clémence. The balance and finesse of his wines are unmatched and represent an exceptional classicism.

From the very first cuvée in the range, one is captivated by this honest style, which balances strength and restraint while skillfully handling pinot noir. These are robust champagnes, underscored by very old vines, wines vinified in barrels and matured extensively in the cellar to refine and blossom at just the right moment. Purity, nobility, and definition are impressively regular features.
