Brut, Blanc de Noirs Grand Cru

Egly-Ouriet, Brut, Blanc de Noirs Grand Cru, NV

RRP £76.67

Since taking over his family’s estate in 1982, Francis Egly has gained worldwide acclaim for his powerful, richly flavoured Champagnes. The most sought-after wine in his cellar is this old-vine blanc de noirs made from Pinot Noir in the vineyard of Les Crayères in Ambonnay, planted in 1946 and 1947. Fermented entirely in barrique, this is an authoritative, densely knit Champagne, yet the chalkiness of the soils here imparts a finesse and vivacity that keep all the components in harmonious balance.
