Egly-Ouriet Brut Tradition Grand Cru

SKU: 3103001122134823Categories: , , ,


75% Pinot Noir, 25% Chardonnay from 35- to 40-year-old vines; 100% grand cru. Crushed almonds over a peach tart and a touch of cherry juice show in the wine’s complex perfumes. Fresh ginger and lemon zest are lively on the palate, with savory notes of lemon butter and toast adding complexity and depth. A remarkably fresh yet profound “basic” brut that is leagues above many other comparable bottles. Chiseled acidity provides firm definition for this chalky Champagne, though it’s swathed on the palate by a creamy range of flavors, including passion fruit coulis, toasted almond, blood orange sorbet and lime blossom. A streak of salinity races on the finish. Even though it was only Disgorged: a few months ago, the NV Brut Tradition Grand Cru is super-expressive. The Brut Tradition brings together parcels in Ambonnay, Bouzy and Verzenay that, together, yield a Pinot-driven Champagne with tremendous breadth as well as cut. Red fruit, dried flowers, mint, spice and lemon confit are some of the aromas and flavors that build in this wonderfully open-knit, inviting Champagne from Egly-Ouriet. Disgorged: July, 2020. Drinking window: 2021 – 2030
