Producers like Egly-Ouriet are why Champagne is home to the world’s most coveted bubbles. The family has been making wine for four generations in the Grand Cru village of Ambonnay, and are by far one of the greatest Pinot Noir specialists in Champagne. 100% Pinot Noir from the legendary Les Crayères vineyard. An iconic wine from Egly-Ouriet with the ability to age for decades. Purely sensational.
WS 95: "Aromatic and spicy, offering notes of pencil shavings, tea rose and star anise, with flavors of blackberry, toast and citrus that glide across the palate. This seamless Champagne is fresh and focused, featuring racy acidity that drives the zesty finish. Drink now through 2025. 100 cases imported." - Wine Spectator
