Non Vintage Egly-Ouriet 100% Grand CruSparkling Champagne
Along with the likes of Selosse, Bouchard, and Vilmart, Francis Egly is a cult among cults. He prunes for very low yields, picks at the limit of ripeness, and because he's making ripe wines, uses little or no dosage. Egly is acknowledged as the finest grower in the Grand Cru village of Ambonnay, with an average vine age of 45 years. The Brut Tradition has a beautiful onion-skin color and that chalky, chocolaty opulence that can only come from old-vine Pinot Noir. 48 months on the lees before disgorgement.
