Egly Ouriet Les Vignes de Vrigny N.V.
The NV Brut Premier Cru Les Vignes de Vrigny emerges from the glass with warm, toasty notes that lead to an expressive core of pears, nuts, spices, licorice and flowers. The Vignes de Vrigny develops lovely amber, burnished tones in the glass that add complexity to the fruit. This mid-weight Champagne should continue to drink beautifully for at least a few years. The Vignes de Vrigny is 100% Pinot Meunier that spent 36 months on its lees prior to being disgorged in July, 2010. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2016.

Egly-Ouriet's NV Brut Premier Cru les Vignes de Vrigny is 100% Pinot Meunier that was disgorged in January 2014, after it spent 42 months on the lees. Golden in color, it offers a clear, fresh and complex bouquet of matured apples, raisins, nougat, red berries and some floral notes. Very delicate on the palate, this is a remarkable, finesse-full, lighthearted Champagne of great elegance. The 12.5% of alcohol is feather-light here, though the finish shows structure as well. This is a lovely Champagne for breakfast, aperitif or for its own merit. Surely one of the finest Pinot Meuniers I have tasted this year.
