Egly-Ouriet Champagne Brut Grand Cru Millesime 2007
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. Aged on its lees for 96 months, the Grand Cru Millésimé 2007 is 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay. Voluptuous, racy and organic. Truly special.
AG94: "The 2007 Vintage is a striking, radiant Champagne. Apricot, chamomile, vanillin and lightly honeyed notes give the wine its racy, flamboyant personality. This is an especially voluptuous, opulent wine by present day Egly-Ouriet standards. Francis Egly adds that he picked this fruit very late. Dosage is 4 grams per liter. Disgorged January 2017." - Antonio Galloni
